In his Pulitzer Prize-winning God: A Biography, Jack Miles posited the notion that the Old Testament God was a person, and then pondered his motives and actions as though the deity were a character in a novel. Now he turns his attention to Jesus in the New Testament.

  • (4/5)
    A witty follow up to Miles's earlier "God: A Biography" which lacks the charm of the original. Here, Miles takes God from his early literary career in the Old Testament to follow him through the Gospels, and discover what sort of changes fatherhood has made in him. Although the author's conclusions are interesting, the book feels somewhat flat next to the original work.

    Being the author's follow-up to his magnificent "God : A Biography". He similarly approaches his subject as a literary character, but this book is quite a bit less successful. It's interesting that in this book, as with its predecessor, it is difficult to determine whether the author is a believer.

    An excellent follow-up to his book, "God, A Biography." It is a highly creative thesis that is quite consistent with his analysis of the character of God. Moreover, the thesis is in no way forced. Anyone, atheist, agnostic, or committed Christian will benefit from this book.
