TAKE A JOURNEY into the everyday life of Jesus and the world he knew.
Through the vivid writing of a seminary-educated journalist who has walked where Jesus walked, you'll join Jesus on the rolling hillsides, the baked-dirt Judean desert, and the rock streets of Jerusalem.
- Experience the hard realities of life in a once-proud nation now occupied by foreign troops.
- Hear angry exchanges between Jewish leaders of clashing movements, jostling for position and power.
- Meet surprising saints—like a Roman soldier and a Samaritan "half-breed"—as well as sinners in the top ranks of religion, including high priests and Bible experts on the Jewish supreme court.
- Learn about ancient Jewish customs, from birth to burial.
Be prepared for astonishing insights into the life and teachings of Jesus. You'll discover new and important meanings you never considered before.
