    "Fundamentalism"

    Besides a fundamentalist approach, this book promotes a literal interpretation of the Bible. The narrator has an irritating habit of chuckling or grunting to make the listener think what has been spoken is obviously true....sort of like canned laughter to let you know when to laugh. I rate it a three, but for many people it would rate a one and for others it would be a five...depends on one's outlook.

    "Great idea, not so great book"
    What would have made Jesus: An Interview Across Time better?

    An un-biased theological viewpoint would have improved this book vastly. The writer definitely has his own axe to grind, and even though he backs up a number of the book's statements with scripture references, his interpretation is very orthodox. He points to a number of dubious Old Testament prophecies and claims that they foretell certain events in Jesus' life even though a closer reading reveals that you will have to twist scripture a great deal in order to make the prophecies fit. He also claims that the Bible is God's inspired and true word, making no mention of the numerous contradictions. His interpretation of scripture and theology is very catholic, which is not necessarily a bad thing, but it means that he puts the words of nearly 2,000 years of church tradition in the mouth of Jesus, rather that really considering what a non-catholic Jesus might actually have said or done.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narration is ... awful. The narrator has a good voice, but he has a tendency to chuckle ever so often, probably in order to emphasize a point, but the effect is wasted on me. Instead, I get annoyed because it makes me feel I have missed something obviously funny. As it turned out, I hadn't.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    A great idea. Not a very great execution, though.


    Any additional comments?

    I would like to recommend this book, but I really can't.
