Who Is That Man Mar 4, 2006
I really enjoyed this book. It gives you a wonderful perspective on how Christ was percieved by all the different groups of people during his ministry here on earth. It is told through the life of Matthias, the apostle chosen to replace Judas. It is a very fun book to read.
