Now Available: The Hidden Life Of Jesus

TWH: Antonio Piñero's book The Hidden Life of Jesus is now available for purchase. You can view the book here at the publisher's website. There's an option to look through the book's contents as well.

Here's the description of the book:
"The discovery of the so-called Nag Hammadi Library rocked the world. Among the texts discovered in 1945 were some Gospels that modern eyes had never seen. Since then, studies regarding the life and teaching of Jesus of Nazareth have made significant advances. As this new light was cast on one of history's most influential figures (if not the most influential), a dark cloud of doubt moved in almost simultaneously. Had the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John reflected the real Jesus, or was this new attention on the 'hidden' Gospels about to unveil the 'hidden life' of the Revealer? The canonical Gospels say very little about the early years of Jesus' life. In fact, Mark and John say nothing. The so-called apocryphal Gospels, on the other hand, say a whole lot. After an analysis of the first two chapters of Matthew and Luke (Part 1), the information found in the so-called apocryphal Gospels is synthesized in story form (Part 2). What should we think of this hidden life? In the end, the reader must decide. But this hidden life is hidden no longer. Of course, that all depends on whether the events they describe actually happened."
And be sure you go to the publisher's page so you can read the blurbs provided by Keith Elliott and Stan Porter.
