The Medical Gospel of Luke, as Told to Him by Mary - The Mother of Jesus
The Medical Gospel of Luke, as Told to Him by Mary - The Mother of Jesus
by Adam Timothy Bradford
Edition: Paperback
Price: £21.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book on Luke I have read, 21 April 2014
This book looks at Luke's gospel from 10 different perspectives and has so much new information it is hard to know where to start. The fact that the publishers offer it from their Templehouse site with a money-back guarantee should tell you something.


Adam - Sinner or Saint? Another Look at the Fall
Adam - Sinner or Saint? Another Look at the Fall
by Adam Timothy Bradford
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.83

5.0 out of 5 stars A brand new take on the Fall, 22 Nov. 2012
Dr A T Bradford's latest book gives a new, original and very different perspective on the fall and explains how Adam in his sin was a type of Christ (Romans 5:14 -'Death reigned from Adam until Moses, even over those who had not sinned in the likeness of the offense of Adam, who is a type of Him who was to come').
That is, Adam ate the fruit and laid down his life in order to get to where Eve then was, separated from God, in order to fulfil his God-given duty of care for her. He laid down his life (perfect relationship with God) for his bride, millennia before Paul told husbands to do exactly that in Ephesians 5:25-26. 'Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, so that He might sanctify her.'
He stepped down out of his unhindered relationship with God into a world of sin, out of his love for Eve, just as Jesus did in his incarnation and death.
That is why Adam is a type of Christ.
The publishers, Templehouse, are even offering a money-back guarantee!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bible-inspired lyrics, 21 Oct. 2012
This review is from: Tempest (Audio CD)
`Duquesne Whistle': "I can hear a sweet voice gently calling, must be the mother of our Lord ..." Dylan has taken to referring to Jesus as `our Lord' rather than simple as `the Lord'. `Pay in Blood': "I've sworn to uphold the laws of God, you can put me out in front of a firing squad ... Man can't live by bread alone, I pay in blood, but not my own ..." Dylan is communicating the fact that it is Christ's blood that pays for the sins of the world, not the blood of any mortal man -

The Letter to the Hebrews - A Commentary
The Letter to the Hebrews - A Commentary
by A. T. Bradford
Edition: Paperback
Price: £15.37

5.0 out of 5 stars New information on Hebrews!, 8 Aug. 2012
Rev Ian (Ishmael) Smale (Chichester Cathedral) says: "A must-read for all who take the Bible seriously." Rev Eric Delve (People Without Limits) says: "Masterful, brilliant... awesome stuff!"
This commentary explains how Jesus can be shown to be 'greater than Moses' by saying 'The builder has more honour than the house.'
It explains the connection between faith and rest - and why God never closed the seventh day of creation.
Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Time out of Mind' explained, 26 July 2011
I have seen a pre-publication copy. This book does 2 things:
Firstly the author (a medical doctor) looks at the reasons for the 7 year gap to 'Time out of Mind', the reasons in Dylan's personal life for the gap, and looks at the album's lyrics and title and arrives at a medical diagnosis - reactive depression. To my knowledge, no one has said this before.
Secondly it looks at Dylan's lyrics from 'Infidels' on and pulls out all the sources for the lyrics (Bogart films etc), but especially the biblical ones. Most of these are new information, because serious biblical analysis mainly stopped after Dylan's so-called 'Christian phase'. The author (a bible scholar) shows (too many examples to mention) that the bible's influence continued.
I guess we have seen that with the new stage version of 'Gonna Change my Way of Thinking'. This is new information too - one example that comes to mind is exactly who the 'Jokerman' is and why.
Finally it is worth mentioning that the publisher (Templehouse.com) is following Dylan's example and giving all the proceeds to a homeless charity. Well worth reading for the medical stuff alone.


The New Testament On Women: The Scripture Unveiled
The New Testament On Women: The Scripture Unveiled
by Dr. A.T. Bradford
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.95

5.0 out of 5 stars The Truth About What The Bible Teaches About Women, 14 Dec. 2010
If you have ever thought that the Apostle Paul or the New Testament in general was anti-women, then this is the book for you; Templehouse recently released a second edition.
Follow Dr Bradford (author of 'The Jesus Discovery') through every NT passage addressing women and learn the attitude that Jesus had towards women, one that Paul + Peter copied but which (misogynist male?) translators seem to have messed about with.
Learn the cultural context and see how the whole NT is in revolutionary agreement - women are no longer second-class citizens.
But if you think this book relies on some dodgy point of view (eg the kephale - 'head' means 'source' argument), think again. Learn how 1 Corinthians 11: 3-10 harmonises exactly with Ephesians 5: 22-33, with no mis-translations such as 'source'. Discover the significance of why God made women last, and why from man and not dust - something no-one to my knowledge has ever said before. It is no surprise to learn that Templehouse Publishing, the publisher of the second edition sells it to women direct in single orders with a money-back guarantee. If you're tired of cliches, read this - you will be blessed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Re-Discover the Jewish Jesus of the first century, 14 Dec. 2010
This review is from: According To Matthew (Paperback)
I read this after 'The Jesus Discovery' and it is of the same inspired quality. Gone is the uneducated or self-educated itinerant peasant, and instead you see a doctor of the Jewish Law at the top of the legal and theological tree in Jewish society, someone that Scribes wanted to follow. The child genius of Luke 2 has graduated from the Court of Israel and is taking the good news of his Father's kingdom to ordinary men and women in Judea. If you want to know what 'the treasure hidden in the field' actually was, read this book. If you want to know why Jesus' only recorded use of the word 'son' to a living person was to the paralysed man, read this book. If you want to know why the Roman soldiers handed Jesus a reed, read this book. If you want to know why Joseph could not have wanted to divorce Mary, read this book.
In 35 years, this is the best Gospel commentary I have ever read. I can understand why the publisher Templehouse-Publishing sells it direct with a money back guarantee! But don't take my word for it - here is what Rev Eric Delve has to say (taken from the Templehouse website):
"Dr Bradford has done a brilliant job for every Christian who wants to know Jesus better. Commentaries have a reputation for being dry as dust and suitable only for academics. His loving look at the Gospel of Matthew has brought alive for me Jesus the Messiah and at points moved me to tears. Adam Bradford's deep understanding of the rich Jewish heritage of our Saviour, his ability to pull enlightenment from some of the Greek terms used and his special knowledge and training as a Doctor all combine to make this a treasure trove of insight, revelation and quirky moments of Godly wisdom. His understanding of rabbinic teaching methods and especially Jesus' use of humour helps to light up each page. His insight into the story of the man lowered through the roof alone is worth the price of this book. It is truly amazing stuff - enjoy!" Rev E Delve (People Without Limits + Detling Bible Week).
Read it - I think you'll agree.

5.0 out of 5 stars Groundbreaking Discovery About Joseph, Jesus' Earthly Father, 7 April 2010
Ishmael (Christian author, internationally acclaimed Christian song-writer and Deacon of Chichester Cathedral) calls it "The most interesting book that I have read in years". Starting from the identification via Roman history of Joseph, Jesus's father, as the architect of Herod's Temple, Dr Bradford uses new behavioural science models of human psychology to conclusively show that Jesus was at the pinnacle of the Jewish theological and so legal society of his day. This amazing book answers these questions: (taken from the website)

Joseph is described as a `tekton' - but who were the tektons?
Why was King Herod the Great re-building the Temple?
The Temple was a functioning holy site - how does the historical record describe its construction?
Why did the 12 year old Jesus ask his parents why they had not looked for him at first in his `father's house'? (Luke 2:49)
Is the idea of Jesus being uneducated consistent with his being the son of devout Jewish parents?
What was happening with the Doctors of the Law in the Temple in Luke chapter 2?
What does the Mishnah say about the age of 30 with regard to public speaking?
Why is Christ addressed commonly with official Jewish religious titles of great respect?
Where were the Temple Guard on the two occasions that Jesus cleared out the official
money changers and sellers of sacrificial animals in the Temple?
Why was Christ never sidelined or ridiculed by the Jewish authorities?
Why was Saul of Tarsus' reaction to Christ so violent?

BE AWARE THAT USED COPIES OF THIS BOOK WILL NOT BE THE UPTO DATE EDITION, WHICH CONTAINS MORE INFORMATION THAN THE ORIGINAL. The Templehouse website has an mp3 link there to a lecture that outlines the book's main points, so you can listen for yourself. But having read the book, I know there is a lot more there than the lecture covers. I have never heard of a money-back guarantee on a new book before - but having read it I can understand why! It is honestly amazing. It puts Jesus at the very top of scholarly life in Israel, which, when you think about it, makes a heck of a lot of sense...
