Rob's retelling of Matthew, Mark and Luke in one is fast-paced, exciting and eye-opening - I often found a whole new perspective on the Gospel. Also enjoyed the 'news items', the interviews with other characters. Excellent! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0310258170, Paperback)

The liberator is creative. It's colourful. It's the gospels as you've never read them. In this engaging new paraphrase, Rob Lacey, author of the award-winning* work the word on the street, renders the complete story of Jesus in the language of the modern urban reader. Using up-to-date dialogue and images, Lacey lends fresh perspective to what can be over-familiar stories and sayings. He digs deeply into the gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke and gives us the story of the Liberator without missing any bits out. Plus Rob's insightful, often humorous sidebar comments will cause you to think about the story in fresh new ways. For new and seasoned readers alike, The Liberator takes the message of the Scriptures into the 21st century to create the impact it had in the 1st century. * Book of the Year (2004), Christian Booksellers Convention Ltd. (UK); Borders' Best of 2004: Religion and Spirituality
