5.0 out of 5 stars Jesus and how we came to know of him., 2 Jan. 2002
This review is from: Desire of the Everlasting Hills: The World Before and After Jesus (Hardcover)
In this book Thomas Cahill analyses Jesus and how his life changed our perception and understanding of God. Jesus was of a particular time and place, so we learn of the world into which he was born. We then hear how his contemporaries, saw him, and, finally, how his message was delivered to us in the voices of Mark, Matthew, Luke and John, the four evangelists,each with his own unique perception. Paul, who never met Jesus but whose conversion led to a lifetime of journeys to distant emerging Christian communities and whose own words we can hear in his letters, is the other voice interpreting Jesus to the young church and to us today.
Cahill uses the American idiom of today, which can at times be jarring, but the succeeds brilliantly in bringing us closer to understanding Jesus - who He was, what he taught us, and why it still has deep meaning for millions around the world.
