It has some gems, but for me, it was disappointing.
on 21 September 2012
Previously, I have reviewed some of Ken Bailey's books, and in the light of them, I decided to buy "Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus". Sadly, I found it did not match my expectations. I suppose I expected it to be as academically rigorous as Bailey's work, but despite there being some real gems of insight, I found its folksy tone, and the exercises printed at the end of chapters distinctly twee.
If you are looking for a light, and readable introduction into the world Jesus Christ lived in them perhaps this is the book for you. If you were looking for something meatier, I would recommend Bailey's work. Alternatively, you could follow C J Craig's advice and read J P Meier's works. I have not, but I think I will follow this reviewer's suggestion and buy at least the first volume.
