it was ok
Read from December 19 to 29, 2011

Most of this book comes off as just opinion of one authors reading, or in this case translation, of books of the Bible. I have often wondered about the translators and how accurate it is today. One section of this book that I really did not agree with was when the author tried to see Jesus as just a human when he was on earth, no special powers. I was okay with the possibility, since as he says who are we to say what is impossible, until he got to the point of healing those who were ailing from disease. While I agree it could certainly be coincidence that they were just have a momentary seizure or lapse of their illness that ended just as he touched them I think the fact there is no documentation of any of those lapses happening again after says there had to be something divine involved. He also makes no attempt to explain the knowledge of the afterlife and how we all would be going to join him when our time on earth is done. I certainly don't get the impression from the book that he does not believe this to be true. Overall a good read to give you things to think about but I would classify this only as one person's opinion and not based on any provable facts.
