    Not As Focused as I Expected

    This book contained a lot of interesting information; however, it is not only about Jesus. There is a lot of background info about the Jews, the Bible, etc. While I find these topics interesting also, it is not really what I expected from the title of this book. Based on the format, I also expected it to be based more on history and fact. While there is a lot of that, this book was written by a minister, and tells the story from his perspective and includes a lot of "faith-based" ideas. This book would be informative to someone new to the subject, but was not the kind of evidence and "witness-based" biography I was hoping for.

    Michael Travis Jasper, author of the novel "To Be Chosen"
