i enjoyed the book because it gave me practical ways to do what jesus was calling us to do. plus the historical and cultural background of when and what jesus was saying to the people of his day was made much clearer. i have not had the opportunity to travel and study the cultural background of jesus days and i am glad someone will share their knowledge and experience.

I studied Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic as I explored the art and science of interpreting Scripture in undergra ...more
