This is an absolutely outstanding book. It rearranges events in Jesus's life in chronological order, which doesn't sound particularly impressive -- but, using multiple source materials, Dr. Moore reaches conclusions that offer new insights into both Jesus's life and the affect it had on those around him. The result is not only a compelling read (flowing more like a novel than a traditional biography), but an almost visceral experience. The book shows how events and interactions, dispersed in bits across the Gospels, came together in "real" time. As a result, Dr. Moore brings to life the changing dynamics of first-century Israel -- generating a palpable sense that "you are there" as things progress toward an inexorable end. Very highly recommended!
