Scholar Joseph Loconte examines one of the most remarkable passages of Scripture, an exchange in the gospel of Luke between two disciples of Jesus of Nazareth-uttered just days after his execution-about the longings of the human heart and the mysterious purposes of God. Historian and journalist Joseph Loconte examines the role of religion in contemporary society against the ancient dialogue overheard on the road to Emmaus in Luke's gospel. Every human heart has a natural longing for "home," and these witnesses to the life and death of Jesus of Nazareth serve as a rich example of that universal yearning. Along the way, Loconte scrutinizes not only the challenges posed by popular skeptics, but also those created by counterfeit religion.

Now, it may have some good points about faith. But I was ready to read an entertaining story in order to discover those points. This was not entertaining. Thought-provoking, yes. But not what the description lead me to believe.
This is not Amazon's fault. It is the fault of the author for putting such a poor description on the back of his book. He was trying to be too artistic and it became misleading.
