5.0 out of 5 stars I feel I know Him now, 20 Oct. 2011
This review is from: The World Jesus Knew: Beliefs & Customs from the Time of Jesus (Paperback)
I was loaned this book to read as part of a course I am doing back in August. I went away for a few days and spent two full days reading this book from cover to cover and looking up every reference along the way. I was so inspired by it that I put it on my Christmas list so now I have it as a permanent reference.

By the time I had finished it, I felt that I knew Jesus the "man". We sometimes struggle to read the Bible and to see it's relevance in today's society. That is simply because it was written for an audience who didn't need to have it all explained because they were living in the era and we in the west, don't have a clue!

I have heard that even today the life of a Jew in Israel, is not very westernized and it is also similar to what it was when the Bible was written so even now they know exactly what's what without explanation.

I would thoroughly recommend this book to all - even those who are sceptical about the whole "Christianity thing" and don't want your mind changed.

Well done Anne, thank you.
