Bailey examines the life and ministry of Jesus with attention to the Lord's Prayer, the Beatitudes, Jesus' relationship to women, and especially Jesus' parables. Through it all, Bailey employs his trademark expertise as a master of Middle Eastern culture to lead you into a deeper understanding of the person and significance of Jesus within his own cultural context. With a sure but gentle hand, Bailey lifts away the obscuring layers of modern Western interpretation to reveal Jesus in the light of his actual historical and cultural setting.

The Bailey Family is Special Feb 11, 2008
It is fitting that David Bailey, Ken's son, gives the first review since the book is dedicated to him. I am a former God hating PK. Ken has helped me see Jesus in a different light. And like David said Jesus Through Middle Eastern Eyes is not just for scholars. Anyone interested in discovering more about Jesus will be blown away by this book. And if you like this book, you may also like Finding the Lost Cultural Keys to Luke 15.
David Bailey himself is a talented musician (guitar, singer). A cancer survivor and dude with a great sense of humor. I recently bought his albums: One More Day and Silent Conversations. eProdigal.com
best yet! Feb 10, 2008
my name is david bailey. My dad dedicated this book to me and I'm humbled and honored - not just because he's the coolest dad in the world, but because this is his biggest and, i think, best book yet. Informative, insightful, inspiring, and extraordinarily readable - both for serious scholars and for us normal people :-)
