    Should be rquired reading for all Christians.

    This book should be considered required reading for all those who consider themselves Christian. Albert Nolan brings to life the culture and political atmosphere of the time in which Jesus lived. One becomes more aware of the tremendous obstacles blocking the ministeries of jesus and why he eventually was killed trying to bring about the Kingdom of God.
