It presents the situation or world at Christ's time in clear detail.
John Oloughlin
Sadly it is out of print and hard to find, so buy it and read it even if you have to spend a lot of money.

His writing style is light and simple - a child can read it easily, and an adult would delight in it too.

I initially gave a copy to a dear friend a Trappist Monk, who believes this is one of the finest books he has read on Christ(my friend in his 80s,been a Monk 50 yrs). I have provided him with over 40 of this book so he can pass on to those he believes will benefit. Well written without the typical pious, theologically steeped language,in other words matter of fact. It presents the situation or world at Christ's time in clear detail. Just a very good book. I should add my friend received the Silver Star for his actions at the Battle of Leyte Gulf so he has seen life from many perspectives.

Highly recommend.

A truly remarkable writer. I especially appreciated the thorough research into biblical facts as well as Jewish and Roman history. He went to great lengths to explain things even using non-biblical accounts. Very interesting.

This remarkable book introduces the reader to the world of the time of Christ as if we are entering into it ourselves. To say Christ comes alive in this book is an understatement. Sadly it is out of print and hard to find, so buy it and read it even if you have to spend a lot of money.

How sad that this book is out of print. It is a very good translation of the original - I have read both the Russian and the English versions, and can testify that translator did a fantastic job. The book itself is without equals. Fr. Alexander Men was a bellwether of Eastern Orthodoxy and a "chrysostomos". His writing style is light and simple - a child can read it easily, and an adult would delight in it too.

You might know this, he was murdered. Many suspected the KGB, but many also thought there was a hand of the Russian Orthodox Church in it. While still a priest, he was loathed by the Church's hierarchy - for many reasons. He was a baptized Jew, he was brilliant, he was non-conformist, he was immensely popular with Moscow intelligentsia... all of it, and much more had made him a pariah within the Church. Many of his books were smuggled to the West and published under a pen name, to avoid an arrest by the KGB. But the same endangered the well-being of the Church's hierarchy, who found a safe balance working hand in hand with the Soviet secret police. Memory eternal, Father Alexander!
