Some of Kalas' Best Work  Mar 2, 2009
I have been becoming less and less a fan of Ellsworth Kalas' work, but this is some of his best...a very good book on, as the title says, "Men Worth Knowing," men from the Bible, taken in the context of their times and applied, effectively, to the context of the times in which we live.

His best chapters are on the life of Mark, Barnabas and to a certain extent Peter. The very best, most moving, chapter is entitled, "An Obscure Hero," about a man who is not named in the Bible.

In retelling the story of the woman who was brought before Jesus and charged with adultery, the story in which Jesus disarmed the situation by saying simply, "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone..." Kalas picks as his "man worth knowing" the man who first turned and walked away. We know nothing about this man other than the fact that he took the first step and others followed disarming a potentially dangerous situation for Jesus and for the woman.

The first man who turned and walked away. An interesting choice and Kalas writes about what kind of man he may have been, what may have caused him to walk away and the life he may have lived afterward, the scorn and criticism he may have received from officials of the day who wanted to trap Jesus and end the trouble He was causing at that precise moment.

This is some of Ellsworth Kalas' best work. This is why people consider him a great communicator of the faith.
