Christ Unified

The True Jesus: Uncovering the Divinity of Christ in the Gospels – David Limbaugh (Regnery)

“Divinity: the state or quality of being divine”
They say confession is good for the soul…so full confession; I have tried on and off for a number of years to work my way through The Bible. I have attempted it in many forms and editions. I have found some of it to be easy and some a bit more difficult.

In reading David Limbaugh’s latest book, The True Jesus: Uncovering the Divinity of Christ in the Gospels, I have found myself more engaged and I have taken more away from the experience of not only reading Limbaugh’s book, but by pairing it with re-reading the referenced sections of the Bible.

I have had the good fortune to speak with David on a number of occasions, including some of his original forays into being interviewed on talk radio, and I always found him to be a thoughtful, intelligent guy who could take complex topics and make them understandable. And that is what I feel he has done with The True Jesus, by examining events in the Bible from the multiple, occasionally divergent perspectives of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

Limbaugh does an amazing job of fusing these varied views of events into a deeper understanding of the life of Jesus Christ. This is not a book to be taken lightly and it is not likely to find its way into the beach bag for a summer vacation read, but it will make a wonderful tool for those who want to delve deeper into their spiritual studies.
