Author Elliott Lesser effectively develops cultural and historical contexts to illuminate selected biblical texts in this comprehensive analysis of the New Testament Gospels and the Book of Acts. The author's secular analysis provides a systematic dissection of these selected texts, with each verse examined through an historical lens, noting contradictions, making parallels, and highlighting perplexities found in each.
Perhaps the greatest strength of this ambitious work is the author's systematic categorization of the analyzed elements, including the historical language of the day, historical context, examinations of parallels in pagan religions of the time, scriptural contradictions, and perplexing concepts found within the verses. These tools help to organize the otherwise overwhelming amount of information into a compendium of biblical reference, history, and thoughtful discussion.
