On 9/23 The Poor In Spirit wrote: From the allegorical reading of Genesis to a treatment of eschatology, Jesus is the center of this book. In some places, the book feels like an updated Origenistic understanding of the Old Testament. In other places, the authors weave together different sources to recreate the historical setting of Jesus ... Jesus: A Theography (Book Review)
