Bart Tarman has spent more than 30 years focusing on the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth – but from an non-religious perspective. He presents the Jesus of the four Gospel narratives in a way that is relevant to our real life struggles and opportunities. Bart loves the subtitle to Gandhi’s autobiography: My Experiments with Truth, because he feels that our connection to Jesus Christ should be just that…. an ongoing experiment with truth and love…. in real life.
Bart and his wife Linda have been married for 47 years, have three biological children and one informally adopted son from Bhutan, as well as 5 grandchildren. They deeply enjoy different cultures, languages, and customs – and meeting people in friendship who wish to be on a journey of truth. In all that they do together they hope to benefit the poor – both the physically poor and spiritually poor (which is all of us!).
They have traveled to over 25 countries (mostly developing countries) from Asia, to Latin America, and the Middle East. They have returned multiple times to many of these regions to build friendships and to encourage good works that are on the hearts of their friends in each region.
