KIRKUS REVIEW

Dr. Bowie, one time rector of Grace Church, New York, has for years been publishing books directed, for the most part, to younger readers, and retelling the Bible story. Here, once again, he has taken the New Testament, and with reverence and clarity made the old story new once more. He has made it a very human story, depicting the disciples with their strengths and weaknesses, not unduly glossing over the differences in the young churches of Asia Minor, but stressing throughout the continuing challenge presented by the life of Jesus, its seeming destruction, and its continuing power and authority. Interwoven, almost imperceptibly, is the identification of successive incidents, parables, miracles and interpretations, with the books of the New Testament, so that readers- and listeners- will begin to feel the New Testament in the making, over 100 years.
