I must recommend the following interview and call in show, featuring Kevin Allen and his guest, Dr. Daniel Fanous:

Very enlightening! Two hours well spent.  :)

I also enjoyed this show with Dr. Daniel Fanous, and I plan to get a copy of his book "Taught by God: Making Sense of the Difficult Sayings of Jesus".  His answers to the questions during the show were convincing.
Grant me to see my own errors and not to judge my brother

Same. His book has been bumped to the top of my Amazon wishlist.

I tried listening to it last night while I was otherwise engaged and didn't get much from it... I'll have to give it another go this week when I can focus just on it...

I have that book but I didn't read it yet. I expect it's going to be really good.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.
