From the Author
"For most of thepeople about whom I write, I must extrapolate from very little real informationand from contradictory traditions which may or may not have any basis in fact.I was free to pick and choose and to interpret... just like the original gospelwriters.
"We know how people are and how we findourselves in the broad variety of situations that make up the human condition.I simply applied my understanding of howpeople are to those people, filled in the gaps and hopefullyhelped Jesus and his teachings make sense to a modern world. When they open thecanon again, I'll submit it for consideration."
