For more than two years, Miep Gies and her husband helped hide the Franks from the Nazis. Like thousands of unsung heroes of the Holocaust, they risked their lives each day to bring food, news, and emotional support to the victims. From her own remarkable childhood as a World War I refugee to the moment she places a small, red-orange, checkered diary -- Anne's legacy -- in Otto Frank's hands, Miep Gies remembers her days with simple honesty and shattering clarity.

For most of the last 2,000 years, questions about the figure of Jesus have begun with the Gospels, but the Gospels themselves raise puzzling questions about both Jesus and the religious movement within which these narratives were produced. Is it possible to shape a single picture from the various accounts of his life given us by these Gospels?

What did you like most about Jesus and the Gospels?

The course was really interesting and very informative.

Have you listened to any of Professor Luke Timothy Johnson’s other performances? How does this one compare?

This was my first book by Professor Luke Timothy Johnson but I will be purchaseing more.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No, but I thought the course overall was excellent.

Any additional comments?

Initially, I was a little sceptical generally about these courses. However, having now completed Jesus and the Gospels I was gratified to find that it fulfilled my expectations. So much so, that I have persuaded my husband to Persue other Great Courses of interest to him. I would highly recommend this course to anyone.
