David G. Hansen, Ph.D.: IN THEIR SANDALS - How His Followers Saw Jesus
Why do many Bible stories seem improbable? Why do Biblical events sometimes appear mythical instead of true? Dr. Hansen explains a matchless way of examining the Bible. Using nine familiar accounts, In their Sandals pictures Jesus as those in the first century knew Him. This refreshing approach will assist lay people, teachers, and pastors to recognize the truthfulness of Bible stories. If only we could have been there. David Hansen offers us the next best thing by taking us back to the time and place of Jesus' ministry. You will find new meaning in recognizable Gospel stories. He reveals the important connection between the context of Jesus' teaching and His message. Dr. Jack Beck, Ph.D. Author Lecturer in Bible Languages, Geography and History
