Great sample, Frank. Can’t wait to read the whole book. The reviews have whetted my appetite!
I’ll let you know when launch date gets closer. Thanks so much, Chris!
Looking forward to it! I read your smaller book on Bethany and it was so eye-opening.
Curious–can we purchase the ebook and qualify for this?? I’m lovin’ the Kindle versions. 🙂
My agent keeps telling me it’s not fiction. I’m using that word very loosely. It’s biblical narrative. Read the Sampler and you’ll see what I mean. It’s been endorsed and recommended by three first rate NT evangelical scholars. Which is comforting. 😉 Consider it a movie made up of several Gospel stories in print. Kind of like the Bible miniseries.
Thanks Quincy. I am so excited about this work. I am praying it will change many lives.
Marcus Borg and Dominic Crossan wrote a book “The Last week” absolutely loaded with fiction presented as fact. They had all sorts of things happening that never really happened at all. I’ve had to purge all they wrote from my mind and hope that they have not left something I later think is true. I think mixing Jesus up with fictional stories is a dangerous thing for any Christian writer to do. ie “I know it’s true because Frank Viola said it happened.” Until you mentioned “fiction” I was looking forward to your masterpiece. I have over the Passover break read good reports of Your “Jesus a Theography” and ordered it through Amazon. I now wonder if I should read it at all. You can’t mix Jesus and fiction unless your name is Mohammed and you make it so blatant that a child of five would never be taken in.

Signed up! I can’t wait for this book. The teaching of Bethany has really been life changing for my wife and I.
