Wayne Wright4 Stars Out Of 5June 27, 2009Wayne WrightBailey puts our Western cultural understanding of Bible accounts in new refreshing light with accuracy to the culture in which they occured. Great reading for the serious Bible student.
R. HAXTON5 Stars Out Of 5January 10, 2009R. HAXTONThis is the book I have been looking for for many years. Dr. Bailey shows Jesus in His culture not in ours. Yet Jesus teachings have a stronger meaning when we realize what He was teaching to the Jewish people in early first century A.D. Palestine. I found this book added not only to my knowledge but most important to my faith. There is much material here that every Christian needs to study, enjoy and learn.
Martha Curzon5 Stars Out Of 5August 7, 2008Martha CurzonIt is interesting and challenges the average readers traditional views of parables etc. from the Bible.
Claudia Williams5 Stars Out Of 5July 21, 2008Claudia WilliamsI truly enjoyed thıs book both from ıts scholarshıp and from Mr. Bailey's insight into typical middle eastern. We often read the gospels with a western point of view, and Jesus grew up in the middle east. I lived for many years in Turkey, so I could envision the interpretations Mr. Bailey revealed in the book. I have seen some of the same attitudes in my Turkish friends. I highly recommend this book to anyone who really wants to understand the world in which Jesus walked as a human being on the earth.
