KIRKUS REVIEW

This re-telling of the life of Jesus is unusually well written with an historical, liberal Protestant approach. The author follows very closely the Bible stories, including not only the four gospels concerned with Jesus and his ministry, but also the stories of the Apostles, the letters of Paul and Revelations. The tone is serious, but not solemn, never sentimental, and the miracles are given simple and reverent statement. Effective use is made of quotations from the Bible, with modern paraphrases of some of the words of Jesus. This book should find a wide Protestant audience, since the ethical emphasis is appropriate for all phases of religious education, and controversial incidents in the Bible are omitted or understated.
