This is NOT another Mary Magdalene had a baby theory. This is factual, acheological, historical proof of what we have found that proved jesus even lived. Very interesting!

Although it is quite common for the author to read their own book for an audio version, there are certain authors who should not read. This is one of them. James Tabor speaks with a painfully boring and monotone voice. However, with that said, the information and content was very interesting. The author had some very interesting insights backed up by substantial evidence. There is certainly a major chasm between the historical Jesus and the Jesus portrayed by the Church. If the book had been read by someone with a little more animation and life in their voice, it could have easily been a five-star book. But James Tabor seems to be a great researcher and writer, but captivating the listener through speech is surely not his forte. I would recommend reading the book.
