Reviews - What do customers think about The Jesus Of The Bible: Jesus Of The Bible?

The Jesus of the Bible  May 25, 2010
I bought this book for a class I am taking. It is excellent and doesn't read like a textbook. It's a real page-turner. Author, Steven Miller, keeps you interested. He adds facts from other historical accounts of that time in hsitory. The maps and pictures also add to the enjoyment of the book. "It's the next best thing to being there."
 
The Jesus of the Bible  Sep 12, 2009
I love this book. It is a different approach to studying the Bible. Very easy to read with lots of pictures and maps. I am leaving for Israel next week and this study guide will go with me. It has brought a new appreciation of the life and customs of Jesus' time.
 
A top pick for religious readers  Jun 16, 2009
Icon? Superstar? What does the Bible really say about Jesus? "The Jesus of the Bible: An Illustrated Guide to His Life - World - Teachings" reaches into the Holy Bible and brings readers what the scripture says about its most holy individual. A story presented in a new way accompanied by high detail maps, full color photographs and paintings, and insights on the artifacts of Jesus' time, "The Jesus of the Bible" brings another dimension to the teachings of Jesus. "The Jesus of the Bible" is a top pick for religious readers.
 
Reader-friendly romp through the life and times of Jesus  Jun 4, 2009
The Jesus of the Bible is an impressive book for its cover price of less than $[...].

The book's author, Steven M. Miller, begins with a look at Jesus' homeland. With maps, illustrations and amazing photographs, Miller shows the farmland of Galilee, compares the desert of Negev to a martian landscape, and gives not only a sense of the history of Palestine, but also how the geography affected the people of the area.

The explanation of life under Roman rule that follows is fascinating, and includes bits of history I've never heard before. Miller's ability to mesh the chronology of Jesus inside the larger history of Rome in a very reader-friendly fashion makes for very interesting reading.

Miller then takes the reader on a romp through life in Jesus' time. He explains what life was like for the Jewish men, women and children of Jesus' day, and takes the life of Jesus as chronologically as possible, explaining the significance of events from his first astounding temple visit, to his temptation in the desert to his disturbingly specific details of what Jesus probably experienced during his crucifixion. Every story is beautifully and effectively illustrated by drawings, maps, satellite images, photographs or piece of artwork.

Although it is clear that Miller is writing as a Christian, and that he believes the Bible's chronology of the events surrounding the life of Christ is true, he writes in a non-proselytizing, journalistic tone that makes it quite readable for non-Christians as well. He also doesn't avoid issues that may make many Christians uncomfortable, from the pagan origins of the dates of Christian holidays, to the parallels between Christian and other ancient beliefs, he questions whether Jesus might have plagiarized the Lord's Prayer, and examines possible celestial events that might have been seen as the "star of the east" that heralded the birth of Jesus.

Whether you believe the Bible is the word of God or just a fascinating piece of ancient literature, this book will engage you, and draw you into a world much different than our own. It will give you a feel for the times and places described in the Gospels, and add a touch of reality to a sometimes other-worldly story.
 
Highly Recommend  Mar 31, 2009
This book is extremely creative in how the vast range of information is laid out for the reader. I felt I was able to follow the text very easily and was able to retain the information very well due to the creative writing and great use of many awesome pictures, illustrations, and maps. You will not get bored reading this book! It feels similar to reading your favorite National Geographic type magazine.

I am a young campus minister and have highly recommended "The Jesus of the Bible" and also "The Complete Guide to the Bible" to our students, fellow colleagues, friends, and family. This book is for the young and the old, the non-believer and believer. To parents out there, I highly recommend you check this book out for both you and your teenagers to read. I guarantee it will hold everyone's interest and attention and spark new conversations that start with, "I didn't know that..." or "Did you know that...!?"

This book is a must read for those wanting background history, information and opinions from yesterday and today's scholar's, and an in-depth/easy to follow journey through the life of Christ.
