    Written with a preacher's grace for word choice and

    a scholar's rigor for clarity. Whether or not you agree on

    perspectives or interpretations, Gomes gives us plenty

    to ponder with a helpful "long view" through history.

    Highly recommended.

    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.

    Fantastic book. Once you begin reading, you will find it difficult to put down the book. Anyone who wishes to KNOW the real Jesus must read the encounter with the real Jesus through this author.
