Not literature but useful nonethelessReviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on November 17, 2007
What to say about this ... on a literary level, it doesn't really work. The author's trying to tread a very fine line between the readability of fiction and the factual content of biography and I'm not sure he really pulls it off. The text is very American with phrases such as Jesus saying 'I totally love you.' I found this very jarring. However, I do think that Anderson has pulled together the various Gospel and historical accounts into a very cohesive whole and it was helpful for me to read it. I'd really like to see a British writer attempting the same task.

and explains the times in which he lived to give greater depth to the readers understanding - just amazing! I read it while I waReviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on June 4, 2015
A fascinating book that really gets to grips with who Jesus was, and explains the times in which he lived to give greater depth to the readers understanding - just amazing! I read it while I was in on holiday in Israel which gave an added level to its meaning. Highly recommend.

Absorbing book, would recommend for anyone interested in the daily life of Jesus. It brings the gospels to life.
