Son of Yahweh: The Gospels as Novels
PRAISE FOR SON OF YAHWEH:
"Mind Blowing . . . I was surprised and enlightened at every turn. Owens' approach reveals hitherto disguised fictional and rhetorical techniques. . . [O]ld lines suddenly become fresh again -- freed from their presumed trite and cliched meanings. . . . Clarke Owens has attempted something so rare as to be utterly astonishing: he has tried to read the Gospels free from religious presumption as texts in their own right." -- Robert Inchausti, author and Professor of English at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo.
"One of the most interesting and informative books I have read about
the gospels . . .
"Owens' first chapter, 'Literary Criticism and the Historical Jesus', is brilliant and deserves to be read and addressed by everyone who has an interest in how scholars work on the "quest" for the historical Jesus.
. . . I have posted on this book five times before but have not yet got to its most interesting ideas. . . .If you're one of those readers who has somehow suspected that Christianity as we know it took shape and momentum as a consequence of the catastrophic events of the Jewish War that culminated in the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple then you'll especially enjoy the way Owens ties the details of those historical events with the literary genre and details of the Gospels."
". . . a refreshing oasis." -- Amazon reviews
