Sonia Coldicutt was 55 before a new and deeper love for Jesus changed her life. How did this happen? She tells you. She is convinced that this story of a Man who was God, as told in a careful re-writing of the Gospels and interspersed with interesting historical facts, is God's book rather than hers. In it the reader is guided through Christ's life in the language of a Believer. Here is an author who, in her first book, has a passionate desire to show the reader how to find what she and many other people have found - THE WAY INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD. To help you she links the Gospels to modern situations and creates modern parables to use as examples. This is what I WANT RATHER THAN THE PARAGRAPH BELOW WHICH IS TAKEN FROM THE BACK OF THE FIRST EDITION. I have not deleted it but it is not how I see things. The author's well-written and accessible modern re-telling of the Gospel stories are collected in this book, recounting the life of Jesus Christ from his conception to the Day of Pentecost and the birth of the infant Christian Church.as soon and understood by a committed Christian. They can be read and enjoyed as compelling chapters in themselves; however, their greatest value is encouraging readers to go back to the Gospels with a fresh eye. The reader is assisted in this by astute use of direct Biblical quotations to the appropriate passages in the Living Bible, as well as the example of the author's own comments and questions.
