A straightforward biographical telling of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ  Jul 6, 2005

Written by nationally recognized author, speaker, and educator Leith Anderson, Jesus: An Intimate Portrait of the Man, His Land, and His People is the culmination of years of research and offers a straightforward biographical telling of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Drawing the four Biblical biographies of Jesus into a single story, Jesus: An Intimate Portrait of the Man, His Land, and His People blends a retelling steeped with historical nuances explained with a conversational, storytelling style that makes the account of Jesus' life flow until one hardly realizes the turning of the final pages. Written expressly to bring forth the story of Jesus in an era when so few have paid close attention to it, Jesus: An Intimate Portrait of the Man, His Land, and His People is written for readers of all faiths, and resonates deeply from beginning to end no matter how familiar one is with the New Testament and Jesus' story.

 
Jesus by Leith Anderson  Jun 10, 2005
This is an extensive work on the life and works of Jesus. The author places the birth of Christ at 6BC and the Ministry leading
up to 30 AD or thereabouts. Jacob describes the Son of Man who
bridges heaven and earth. The famous Parable of Wheat and the Weed
sorts out good and bad people allegorically so that G-d can deal
with them at the end of time. The Parable of the Home Owner
points toward the need for those who understand Christ's teaching
to tell others of its existence and meaning. The book explains that Jesus argued with religious leaders for the following reasons:
1. He believed that they weren't teaching the Scripture or the Law
2. Some religionists supplanted teachings with cultural traditions
3. Some citizens simply did not set a good example for the flock

The Parable of the Hidden Treasure points toward the eternal joy in the Kingdom. A strength of this work is that the author discusses some complex theological issues simply. Classic parables are set forth and explained so that the average reader
can glean the essential themes without too much technical knowledge of the theologies involved.

The book is a good value for a wide constituency of readers both inside and outside formal academe.
 
Great Book!  Apr 13, 2005
I picked this book up as part of a gift card for my birthday and I have trouble putting it down. Anderson really puts you in the time and place and the setting of Christ's last days on earth. You can almost hear the crowds in the Temple as well as feel the heat and dry dust of the desert.

I wound up going back and re-reading several passages of the Gospels that parallel the book and it really adds some great context and historical perspective which leads this reader to a better understanding. And isn't that what any good book should do?
 
A basic biography  Mar 3, 2005
Just bought the book and was disappointed in the lack of depth. Anderson did a lot of study on the background and setting of the Gospel story, which is good and helpful, but don't expect anything startling or new. It lacks scholarly depth and profundity. The teachings of Jesus are conspicuously absent in this biography. For instance, the Lord's prayer is covered in all of two pages. It is a great book for someone unfamiliar with Jesus' story, however and tells it in contemporary and understandable language.
