I can see why other like this book but it just was just not my cup of tea. The first one hundred or so pages were painful. The delivery of the needed background information was clumsy (and boring) and I found the actual story a little corny at first. The middle was a simple recitation of the New Testament stories. The little bit of fictionalization of the stories did help and he had some interesting thoughts on how the miracles of feeding the 5,000 and water to wine may have occurred. Perhaps if I didn’t already know all these stories it would have held my interest longer but I got to the point of thinking “all right already I have read the Bible, do you need to include every story and have him meet every important person?” The last part of the book was actually a little bit enjoyable but I don’t think it was worth slogging through the first three hundred pages for it.
