What would it be like to stumble upon a record of Jesus' life and death written by Pontius Pilate, the man who turned Him over to the mob? How could this man justify or rationalize his actions? James R. Mills, historian, teacher and politician, asked himself these same questions, the results of which are evidenced in THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO PONTIUS PILATE. Drawing from the Old and New Testaments, the works of Josephus, and the most respected biblical scholarship, the author presents a completely fresh perspective on the Gospels. Mills takes you back in time, to a point some 30 years after Christ's crucifixion. You are introduced to the aged Pontius Pilate who, exiled in Gaul, begins to reflect on his years in office as governor of Rome. Hearing reports of the deaths of Christian zealots, and having received copies of certain interesting Christian documents, Pilate decides to add his own account of the birth, ministry, and death of Jesus. Through Pilate's musings, you begin to understand the Roman world and the historical forces that bore on the men who had to respond to the controversial Jesus of Nazareth. As Pilate's story unfolds, you will confront with him the significance of Christ in that time and all time. It becomes clear that this Jesus made a profound impact on all who came in contact with Him--even those who chose not to follow His teachings.
