Anderson, Leith "Jesus. An intimate portrait of the man, his land, and his people"

Anderson, Leith "Jesus. An intimate portrait of the man, his land, and his people" - 2006 

This is an interesting read both for Christians and those who know almost nothing about the New Testament. A lot of parts are explained to people reading it nowadays, examples are given to our contemporary life or what certain parts meant to people in Jesus' life.

Whether you know the bible or not, this book is full of information. You can read it in one go or use as a reference book. It reads like a biography.

From the back cover: "An expanded retelling of the life of Jesus, including all the details from the Gospels in chronological order, the geopolitical scene, the historical and cultural setting, and the likely emotions and motives of those who interacted with Him. Here is a great introduction to the greatest man who ever lived for those who don't know much about Him, and a fascinating read for those who have grown up in the church and are very familiar with the Gospel accounts. Leith Anderson's conversational storytelling style makes the book appealing to a wide range of audiences and ages."


  1. Definitely sounds interesting, will look for it. You always have such interesting books on your site.

    1. Thank you, Janet,

      I am lucky to have many international friends who love reading just as much as I do. We all recommend books to each other, so I guess over time we all get to find a lot of unusual and unknown books.

      Glad you enjoy my suggestions.
