“Who is Jesus Christ? Unlocking the Mystery in the Gospel of Matthew” by Eric Sammons is one of the best books that I’ve read in a very long time. At the moment I’m alternating between not letting my copy, which I’ve just finished but already want to read again, out of my sight, and thinking of people who I know who would really enjoy reading it…
Sammons book helps us to take a closer look at our Savior and leads us learn something about Him that we had (very likely) missed when reading the Gospel through on our own. Familiar verses take on new life when the actual meaning of the names, which I had read on my own many times over the years, are studied within the context of the Gospel.
As you can probably guess, I would strongly recommend this book for anyone! From Mom’s like me to theology students like my husband you are bound to learn something new about our Lord and Savior as he is revealed in the Gospel of Matthew.
I hope there are three more books like this one based on the other Gospels being written!
