I have always been fascinated by God and religion, and so clearly, the front cover and it's title piqued my interest. Having toured the Old City of Jerusalem recently, it seemed only right to purchase the book. I thought is was brilliant. The way the authors brought narrative into the chapters allowed it to breathe as a story, as opposed to it being a "boring history text book". Not once did I feel that the writers were forcing their own perspective or faith into the book, and I appreciated the neutrality and factual angle it took. For anyone who is fascinated by the most famous man that has ever lived, who wants a book that is contemporary, relevant and modern in it's approach and style of writing, then this is the book for you. I can't recommend it enough....and I'm not even Christian!!!
