Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Miller (religion, Lark Forest Coll.; The Gospel of Thomas) presents the Gospel of Matthew with an emphasis on the teachings of Jesus, which lead to individual spiritual transformation. Providing a translation of the text (Jesus becomes Jeshu, drawing on his full name of Jehoshua ben Josef) and copious footnotes, Miller brings Matthew's story into the present day for lay readers just as Matthew updated and revised Mark's gospel. Through the teachings, parables, and healing in the stories of Matthew, readers are drawn into the divine authority of Jeshu and the belief that to forgive and trust in the future leads to good. Many Christians can become jaded when hearing the same weekly sermons and Bible stories; this book allows for a captivating expression of the Gospel and might lead to the awakening of the consciousness of our divine nature. This translation is not intended to replace more in-depth studies of the Gospels but to act as a spiritual guide no matter what one's religion. Recommended for public libraries.-Leo Vincent Kriz, West Des Moines P.L., IA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
