Anne Martin I find difficult to believe Jesus would have been jailed for 6 or 7 days without any mention of it. Now... everything is possible.

This book asks the questions you've been wondering about if you've read the gospels. Yes, there are huge discrepancies, noted by many writers nowadays. It has been said that Jesus sounds like a carpenter's son in Mark's gospel, gets more sophisticated and closer to God in Luke's and Matthew's, to be transcended in John's.
I would like to ask questions to the author, but don't see how.
One special point about this book: it is the heaviest I've read in a very long time. Go for the ebook. But it's li

I won this in a Goodread giveaway for a honest review.

Interesting book, text book size so think about getting a kindle etc version if you can, but worth reading in paperback anyway of not.

Interesting questions raised and food for thought, I think it would be good to stimulate discussion and he raises some good arguments. It looks at some of the 'undecided' questions.

I received a copy of this book in a Goodreads giveaway.
I am so pleased to have gotten this book. I can already see that this will be a valuable resource and supplement to my reading of the Bible. The topics I have read so far offer new information (new to me that is) about the historical and factual background of the New Testament . It encourages me to think about some old biblical passages in new ways.
I will be sure to keep this book handy when I read.

I won a copy of this book in a Goodreads giveaway. It is a large book and I did not read it like a story all the way through. I have used it to supplement my Bible studies of the New Testament. It really helps me understand things better. I am afraid with much use the book will fall apart in its paperback form. So I would suggest a hard cover if their is one, or one you can download on your computer, Kindle, ect. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to use this book in my studies.
