Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"This installment of Cahill's Hinges of History series proves to be as evocative, honest, and enlightening as his first two best-sellers, How the Irish Saved Civilization (1995) and The Gifts of the Jews (1998). By critically examining the history surrounding Jesus' own lifetime, he addresses the question, Did the life and death of Jesus make any difference to society, both modern and ancient?....Although what Jesus has taught and said may never be agreed upon, the influence Christianity has had on society, even in these postmodern, secular times, is unquestionable. Cahill delights and fascinates in exposing strange twists of history by engaging new and lively perspectives on ancient debates, and here he does it very well indeed." Michael Spinella, Booklist
