This book is an interesting and excellent read. Though it leans more toward the intellectual, and you may need a dictionary close by, Gomes delves into traditional Christian interpretations of the bible through the minds of various early-mid 20th century scholars and compares them to the current modern-day biblical theories and doubts that current Christians possess and question. Using his personal thoughts and opinions, he connects both eras of biblical doctrine and ties them into a nice neat little bow. The gospel and Jesus are debated and analyzed. It allows the reader to contemplate their own beliefs and hopefully achieve a better understanding of the gospel and Jesus and their true meaning and intentions.
