Man from Galilee

Man from Galilee

by Daniel Halevi Bloom, Angel L. Monte

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
K-Gr 3 While Bloom's goal to explain Jesus in a historical context, especially for non-Christians, is admirable, the book falls short of the mark. The details of Jesus' life, his beliefs and teachings are dealt with well, and Jesus (or Josh ua, his Hebrew name, which Bloom uses) emerges as a sensitive, learned man whom children can greatly re spect. In keeping with the historical point of view, there is no mention of miracles or resurrection. However, where Bloom fails is in the bold asser tion that ``the version I am going to tell you is the true one,'' and his subse quent denial of any other interpreta tions, which he compares to ``fairy tales.'' Although there is a definite need for secular information about Jesus, this book is certainly not appropriate for any library collection. Micki S. Nevett, Temple Beth Emeth Library, Albany, N.Y.
