For years foreign correspondent Louis Michaels, when he was not covering breaking news from Belgrade to Beijing, kept a personal notebook. Here it is. He wanted to relate the teachings, parables and instructions of Jesus in a new way with an extensive commentary which might allow them to take on fresh significance. "There is also the reason," he says, "for the use of a paraphrase (my own) rather than an existing translation. The more we see Jesus' message empahzised in a new language, the better. A new phrasing can refresh the meaning of scripture, which all too often grows dull with repetition. Here I have tried to present the teachings of Jesus in a somewhat different way, by offering his words in an arrangemnet which lends itself to refleciton and meditation, with a commentary which I hope will be helpful. "This book presumes a certain familiarity with the Gospels and I hope that its effect will be to return you to the New Testament with new interest rather than lead you away from it." (Hardbound)
