5.0 out of 5 stars New Light, 29 Oct 2010

This review is from: The Book of Witnesses (Paperback)
This book, which I haven't finished reading yet, gives a wonderfully refreshing perspective to some of the major events during the life of Christ, which most of us are familiar with anyway.

Each little set piece provides a narrative from a slightly different point of view, which is both thought provoking and poignant (e.g. the story of the Three Wise Men is told by a scribe who accompanied them on their journey).

Mr Kossoff's writing style is just so easy to read, but I tend to regard him as an old friend anyway, having been brought up on his Old Testament stories and his 1960's TV series. It's like a kindly old uncle telling you a story.

For me, this book is a keeper - I'll read it to my grandchildren.

David Kossoff was a brilliant man, full of humour and life. All his books are deeply thought provoking.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Book of Witnesses, 30 Oct 2013

This review is from: The Book of Witnesses (Hardcover)
The Book of Witnesses is a sequel to the renoened Bible stories by the same author.

Despite the fact that David Kossoff is by his own admission 'Jewish Actor'. He does a great job of Imagining the different accounts that many different witnesses of the birth, life and death of Christ might have experienced and so told us. Sadly [but not unpredictably] the book ends with the death of Christ and the soldiers being bribed to keep quiet.

You are left to wonder on the resurrection itself. A glaring omission for a book of witnesses to the central characther of all history: Jesus Christ
