HASH(0x913c3360) out of 5 stars Will expand and enlighten one's faith 12 April 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Although it is fiction, this 1st person account of Jesus' answers to the interviewer's questions is completely Scriptural. I found myself identifying with Jesus as He Himself identified with people. Checking Biblical references validated His statements of being both fully man and also God. Aside from the Bible itself this book has given me insights into the life of Jesus above anything else I have read. I recommend Jesus: An Interview Across Time for thoughtful reading, Scriptural investigation, prayerful meditation.

HASH(0x941fad98) out of 5 stars Wrestling with humanity of Christ 18 Feb. 2004
By David Di Sabatino - Published on
Format: Paperback
The conservative evangelical environment that I was brought up within leaned heavily upon the presentation of the divinity of Jesus, the second member of the Triune God. In that setting we doted upon his prophetic utterances and the tricks with fish and bread that he did. In that "us versus them" we thought it okay to hope for the day when Christ would return triumphantly as a judge to, well, vindicate "us" and polish off the various groups of "them" that we had so clearly defined.
To twist the Apostle Paul's statement around, when I was a child I thought as one.
Andrew Hodges book helps readers to wrestle with a very human Jesus, a flesh and blood person that is probably more important on a micro level than the sort of divine superman disguised by sandals and toga that we were used to hearing about. It is a misnomer to think that we are "saved" solely by what Jesus did on the cross. We are also saved by what he did in his life, his struggle to overcome, to wrestle with the forces of evil and to walk blameless and uprightly. If he did all these things with aid of divinity, then it really has no bearing on me as a fumbling morass of material existence.
This book gets into that struggle, offering potential insights into the thought process that a human being wrestling with real issues would go through. Hodges helps me identify with the person Jesus so that he is much closer. I have more affinity with a Jesus in Gethsemane where he angsts over what is to come than I do the resurrected Lord. At least, at this point of the journey.
When you're done with lapping up the milk, buy this book and chew on some meat.

HASH(0x91fdac0c) out of 5 stars Jesus: An Interview Across Time 26 May 2013
By Klipper - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I loved this book. I had never given thought to the way Jesus would have learned from the scripture (which every Hebrew boy would have studied) that HE was the Messiah.
I had also not pictured Him laughing and enjoying His friends, His followers, but He certainly WOULD have!
Dr. Hodges explains so well how the scholars of Jesus' day CHOSE to deny "over three hundred specific prophesies about the Messiah" which were obviously fulfilled in Him.
He makes it easy for me to imagine how His mother must have thought she was the perfect parent...until she had other children who could be disobedient, selfish and mean.
There are hundreds of thoughts which Dr. Hodges has put on paper which are profound and thought-provoking. I highly recommend this book and it is truly worth reading more than once!
The divinity AND humanity of Jesus were never more clearly presented to me.

Format: Paperback
Dr. Hodges takes a fictional "what if", a sitdown interview with Jesus Christ, and presents a fascinating look at the historical Jesus. This very thoughtful and researched book provides inspiration because Dr. Hodges' own professional background allows a unique insight into the events that shaped Jesus' life and his mission. I COULD NOT PUT THE BOOK DOWN! I have READ the book at least a DOZEN TIMES. I am a PLAYWRIGHT and this book inspired me to write my own one person play about the life of Jesus. I used Dr. Hodges' book as one of the background sources for my play, AN EVENING WITH JESUS. Let me tell a story about the first time I presented this work. Because of my background in theatre, I was asked if I would provide entertainment to an audience of severely mentally handicapped men, women and children. They were on a weekend retreat and my time was to be on Saturday evening. I really didn't know what to do so I thought I'd take the rough draft of AN EVENING WITH JESUS. After about an hour and a half, I still had the attention of an audience that I was told "would probably fall asleep" on me within the first 15 minutes. They loved the story of Jesus that I had written because it gave Jesus a very human presence in their lives. And this is what Dr. Hodges' book, JESUS AN INTERVIEW ACROSS TIME, gives readers - an intimacy with a very real Jesus who we are able to see and understand from his life on earth.

HASH(0x91522c90) out of 5 stars Great For The Non-Practicing Catholics and so on... 12 Nov. 2004
By Tracy J. HICKS - Published on
Format: Paperback
I had read this book back around in '92 finding it among a popular book store. What totally amazes me with this is the fact that if you just believe heresay and superstitions about who so and so heard and just go to church once a week or just once a year, this opens your eyes to a REAL God who actually desires you to talk with Him! Your hidden hatred toward the Jews will be minimized as your little knowledge of their culture is blossomed in Jesus' spoken love toward His people. You have a different view of Satan as being a master of deception as you "observe" him popping up on Jesus in the wilderness. "Oh! Hi there!" You hear behind His words the pain and sorrow He experienced when losing His stepfather, Joseph's passing away. You want to cry when He tells us how the children His age made fun of Him as well as the town drunks taunting "He doesn't know who his real father is!" You feel the responsibility He takes on as the new head of household while taking care of His brothers and sisters with His mother. I can go on and on! This is a great book for those who don't "get" the Bible. This will inspire them to open His Word: the Holy Bible and search the treasures inside for eternal life.
Sincerely, U.S. Marine Corporal Tracy J. Hicks
