We will never be clear on the life of this man until we pass ourselves. I know that there was a human side to Christ, and if anything, it made me respect him more.
To me, this book was a courageous move to see behind the dogma.
So, surprise me like that anytime!
It is indeed well written. It reads something like a conversation, in which you can either participate or observe as it transpires. In that sense, it is an easy read. However, in my opinion, that's a little deceptive. There is a lot in there, and I think it's very much the case that you get out of it, what you put in. It should be read twice.
It is written with a certain unapologetic candor that grants a degree of authenticity to an otherwise wildly implausible subject. It is not over-written, that is to say, the author leaves a sufficiency of ambiguity that both enhances the realistic tone and allows for personal interpretation.
The material appears to be well researched - I didn't fact check it - smoothly co-mingling known history, biblical data, and fiction. I thought the reconciliation of some of the many confusing & conflicting parts of the Bible was brilliant.
The Southerners who have insisted to me; "after TWO THOUSAND YEARS there has NEVER been a SINGLE contradiction found in the Bible", may find that part eye opening. Certainly my suggestion that they Google "inconsistencies in the Bible" has never been well received. I expect, going forward, I'll simply recommend "AUTOBIOGRAPHY".
Long version: One of my friend purchased this book for me several years ago. Having kindle, I find myself mostly reading it through kindle. Seeing that this was available here in digital I bought it. Honestly, not expecting much out of it. Eventually I got around to reading it. It takes getting little used to since it's actually written as "bio" and it puts you in a place/time. After first/second chapter it picks up steam and you won't be able to put it down. It's simple writing but somehow it will help you ask good questions to yourself and shows you are here for a purpose. Life is not empty and meaningless. It shows you to worry less and showing you that glass is always half full (never half empty). My favorite chapter in this book is Chapter 14 - The sermon on mount... "You are the light of the world. Let your light shine with good conduct for all to observe." I would frequently share this specific chapter with family and friends who come over to visit me (especially the one's who don't like to read).
ps: it shows up in kindle app saying it doesn't have TOC but it does. Just flip couple of pages and you will see it.
