A Different Slant of the Life of Jesus and the effect he had...
on 13 September 2012
If you want to find out more about the time that Jesus lived, and the effect he had on the people around him, read this book. Although technically a work of fiction, it is founded very strongly on social history for the area and time, and on relevant biblical texts. For me, this book has added an extra dimension to my appreciation of Jesus' life, and has given a greater understanding to why things turned out as they did (although we know that the actions of the Chief Priests and the Sanhedrin helped fulfil God's plan). And when you've read this, because I recommend that you do read it, you should read 'The Robe' by Lloyd C Scott, which is even more stunning.
