The introduction to the book had me interested from the word go, describing our famous and renowned leader Sir Winston Churchill from four different perspectives. This gets the reader thinking about Jesus. All the gospels vary slightly in the way they talk about Jesus, His life, His miracles etc., and many say that they are contradictory. This book helps to show that four different people can talk about the same person, Jesus Christ, in four different ways, and yet they are talking about the same person.
It is a good book for beginners in the study of the Four Gospels, easy to read yet mind-stretching and offering challenges.
Inspirational? Sure, if your mind is open.
