Since the days of the early church, Christians have struggled to understand the relationship between two seemingly contradictory concepts in the Bible: law and gospel. If, as the Apostle Paul says, the law cannot save, what can it do? Is it merely an ancient relic from Old Testament Israel to be discarded? Or is it still valuable for Christians today?
"Review of Audio and Hardback"
Many books have been written about Christ and the Christian life, but few have captured so much in so succinct a manner. Jacob dreamed a dream of steps up to heaven connected and accessible to man. Today that ladder still exists outlined in a way worthy of its subject.

Many Christians find themselves mired in past regrets or future fears, but the name of God itself reminds readers that God wants them to live in the present. The more readers understand and apply God’s I AM statements from the Old and New Testaments, the more they will realize God’s peace and joy. Then they will be free to live, serve, and know God more richly in the present tense—which is just where He wants them to be.
"A must read for those seeking to know Christ."
A brilliant skeptic, Jose Saramago envisions the life of Jesus Christ and the story of his Passion as things of this earth: A child crying, the caress of a woman half asleep, the bleat of a goat, a prayer uttered in the grayish morning light. His idea of the Holy Family reflects the real complexities of any family, and, as only Saramago can, he imagines them with tinges of vision, dream, and omen.
"A dry, wry retelling of the story of Jesus Christ"
Over the past hundred years, scholars have attacked the historical truth of the Gospels and argued that they were originally anonymous and filled with contradictions.

How are the four Gospels different from other Gospels, such as the lost Gospel of "Q" and the Gospel of Thomas?

And it is absolutely worth the cost.
