'Truth is stranger than fiction,' they say. If so, the true story of Jesus of Nazareth must be the strangest story of all. When first told, it set the world on fire. Those caught with it were fed to lions. Rulers said it 'turned the world upside down.'
This first historical translation of Luke reveals that human story. It unfolds what the original is really saying. All of us may side with this man. Forget anything you know about him. Read this as you would the story of any other human. You may be amazed at what you find out.
"I think each generation has to have a go at this kind of thing... to bring out the original flavour in ways which make sense today"
- Bishop Tom Wright
"It deserves to be taken seriously and its challenge to conventional interpretations is worth taking up."
