The Stranger on the Road to Emmaus by John R. Cross (165)

I was always interested in who was the stranger on the road to Emmaus.  It is a parable that can baffle any Christian who wants to really know the message contained in this very important parable. So, when I saw this book sitting at a second-hand book shop, I grabbed it. And I was thoroughly informed and inspired by it.

This book not only explains who the stranger was, but also what his message was.  This is a parable about how the outcast is ignored, and how we as Christians should care about people who are poor and need a helping hand.

Here is a book that explains the greatest of Bible themes clearly and logically. Rather than focusing on one part–and missing the whole–the author chronologically binds together then entire text into one great universal drama, looking at events from a perspective of those who experienced history in the making. The results are sometimes comical, sometimes frightening — but always true to the intent of the text.

When I was finished reading the book, I found the story much more believable. This was my experience, but you may not believe the story either. The author’s objective approach leaves that decision up to you.
