Philip TuttSacramento, CAAge: Over 65Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5Read ThoughtfullyApril 20, 2012Philip TuttSacramento, CAAge: Over 65Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4This work is what I would call a good devotional gloss on the gospels. It is not a scholarly exegesis (it does not pretend to be), nor does it cover any of its subjects in sufficient detail. Those who are accustomed to studying from the KJV will also find the NEB language disconcerting. I probably have more points of disagreement than agreement with the author. That said, I highly recommend a careful reading, if only for one reason: the book is an effective remedy against loss of meaning which over-familiarity with gospel texts can engender, even among serious students of the Bible. As a bonus, the author includes an anonymously-penned, outrageously funny riff on biblical literalism (ps. 33-35 of the 2006 hardbound edition), which itself, alone, is worth the price of the book.
