When we read The Holy Bible we are spectators of biblical characters and events. The Bible Spectators is a new genre of Bible literature whereby the author “spectates,” or puts himself in the shoes or sandals of various Bible characters, and tells their story.
“Spectators of Jesus the Christ,” the flagship publication of this new Bible literary genre, is a thirty-four chapter book that has scripturally-based, theologically-edifying and literary-captivating first-person essays. This book portrays Jesus’ life, teachings, miracles and redemption through the fictitious eyes, imagined thoughts, perceived feelings and fictional observations of seventeen men and nine women reported in the four Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Each character is introduced with the “It was I” three-word lead-in.
