The relationships between the various elements of the population of Palestine with each other and with the occupying forces is totally believable and easy to relate to various political situations in existance today - not least those in the same geographical location.
One thing that I, as a non-believer, found strange was the readiness with which the people of that time and place accepted the possibility of miracles. In Todd's account none of the witnesses to such events expresses any of the amazement that would surely accompany, by way of example, the "feeding of the five thousand" were it to happen today.
Some may find the book over long but it is never boring and as the reader begins to wonder how it came about that the vast volume of material that Luke and his assistant assemble in this imagined project was reduced to what we see today in Lukes Gospel, Todd provides the answer in a dramatic climax.

Obviously, there are artistic liberties taken here and much of its contents are speculation. That's the nature of Bible-based *fiction*. It appears to be well-researched speculation, though, and I found much of it quite thought-provoking (besides just being an enjoyable story).
Some other reviewers have commented on the somewhat "intellectual" feel of much of the book (my interpretation/summary of what they're saying), and I think they're right. I think it fits well with the theme of the book, though, as Luke's entire mission was a somewhat intellectual one. A research-driven project as the primary theme of the book will naturally produce a "research-driven" feel in the book itself.
I quite enjoyed it.
