An amazingly clear discussion of Jesus' last days, 27 Sep 2006
This book will make you question everything you think you know about the last days of Jesus, his death and apparant resurrection. Morison leaves no stone unturned in his quest to find the truth, starting from the last supper he uses his amazing logic to pick out each and every clue from the Gospels to ascertain the true course of events. His views are unbiased, and the reader is offered every alternative to the view presented in the Gospels. His writing style is extremely lucid, Morison has an impressive skill in explaining complex historical issues in a clear and understandable way.
I would recommend this book for both believers and unbelievers, for the former it will unlock the Gospel accounts to an amazing degree and for the lattr it goes quite some way to dispelling the idea that Christianity is based on "blind faith" and nothing else. The fact that Morison set out to disprove the resurrection, but found that the facts would not bend this way is surely reason enough to read this book...it is an extremely enjoyable read and one of my all time favourites.
