Larry Buttrose looks at the Papacy as a human institution with all the flaws, failings, intelligence and resourcefulness of mankind. An engrossing read.
John Dickens “Jesus, A Short Life” looks at Jesus through the eyes of an historian and I was left with a faith and understanding somewhat repaired. Jesus’ life, teachings, supporters, controversy, death and resurrection are all examined through an historian’s eye. Of particular interest was his treatment of miracles and the Resurrection. The magnificent at works selected to illustrate key events in Jesus life add to the readability and stimulation of this book –refreshing and provocative.
