Jesus: An Intimate Portrait of the Man, His Land, and His People   Jan 19, 2007
Superb! Brings amazing depth to the times, life and death of Christ. Anyone looking for a captivating read on Jesus...look no further. I can't seem to put it down!
Great read  Jan 18, 2007
This book really places you in the presence of Christ and I highly recommend this book for anyone, no matter where you are with your relationship with God.
An Absolutely Captivating "Journey with Jesus"  Dec 18, 2006
As a fairly new believer, I came across this book in the store and thought I might try it. I wanted to know more about the life of Jesus from his birth to his resurrection, without it being an oversimplified account, but also nothing over my head (as a new believer). I was hooked from page 1, and I couldn't put it down. It is written in such a way that you are given a lot of historical, cultural information, but without being bored. Its purpose is academic, but it is written so engagingly that it reads more like a novel. It's like you are a part of the story--there with Jesus on his journey. Still, the author manages to explain the parts that need explaining; his sidebars are not intrusive but answer those questions that many believers, both old and new, might have. As a person with new faith, this book has strengthened my faith, and given me a better insight and more familiarity with who Jesus was and what happened during his life. Even those who have been long-time believers would find great enrichment in reading this book and going on the "journey with Jesus". While I'm not sure what I would have thought of this book as a non-believer, I think that perhaps reading such a vivid and detailed account (rooted in historical, cultural facts) would have tempered my casual (and sometimes adamant) dismissal of everything associated with Jesus. It certainly would have given me up-close, personal insight into what I believed to be a distant myth.

Subtitled: An intimate portrait of the man, his land, and his people

This is a unique biography of Jesus. It draws together the four gospel accounts as a harmony of the gospels might, but it goes beyond. What author Leith Anderson has done, with help from his collaborators, is to add brush strokes to the scene that the four gospels portrayed. The narrative he creates is faithful to the gospel account but adds relevant information to deepen the reader's understanding of the times, land, custom, culture, cares, and concerns that the people of Jesus' day faced.

For example, as the book opens Joseph is taking Mary to Nazareth to be counted and taxed by the Romans. This was an expensive undertaking, the time for the trip, time away from his trade, cost of the tax--even the thought of paying an additional tax for the baby if the baby were born before they could be counted in the census. These are things one would not normally think of, but which add new understanding to the account of Jesus' birth.

Later, when Jesus was challenged about breaking the Sabbath, we learn that Sabbath laws had spiraled out of control--things like cutting one's nails, carrying a handkerchief down the stairs, aiding a sick person, or lighting a candle were all forbidden. (You could help a sick person keep from dying, but you could not help them get better--that had to wait until after the Sabbath was over). One gains a new appreciation for the patience Jesus so often demonstrated in dealing with the Jewish leaders!

For the person who wants to really get to know Jesus, this book will be a blessing. For the reader who knows little of the life and times of Jesus, it will be an eye opener. I recommend it.

Armchair Interviews says: Interesting view on the life of Jesus.
A storyteller's dream  Sep 25, 2006
By weaving together the Gospel accounts of the life of Jesus and offering his own brief commentary, paraphrases and culture background, Anderson makes the story of Jesus approachable and understandable.

The author writes with a rare mix of humility and confidence bringing together a pastor's sensitivity with a scholar's expertise in this highly readable summary of Jesus's life. Recommended for everyone who wants to experience the story of Jesus again. Or for the first time.
