I teach a Sunday School class for adults and enjoy reading things that might make me a better Bible teacher. This book was amazing! I read it in one sitting. I simply could not put it down. Dr. Gempf's writing style was not only informative, it was fun! It was like the 'light went on' when I read his interpretation of Jesus' questions and answers. I can hardly wait to share some of his insights with my class. This week's lesson is on the Good Samaritan. I had never really grasped that the 'expert in the law' would have had the smug satisfaction he discussed when listening to the response of the priest and the Levite. What an interesting insight. I also was moved by his discussion of the story of the 'rich young ruler' and Jesus' question about why he called him 'good.' Awesome. I loved the way he tied all of Jesus' teachings together to make the central point that Jesus wants us to choose for ourselves where we will stand on issues, particularly the issue of who he is. This book was excellent and should be required reading for anyone who wants a fresh insight on what Jesus' teachings were all about.'Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
