"Misreading Scripture Through Western Eyes: Removing Cultural Binders to Better Understand the Bible" by E. Randolph Richards

"Jesus Through Middle Eastern Eyes: Cultural Studies in the Gospels"

 It's been awhile since I've gotten excited over a book, but these two books have really intrigued me.  Especially because I've began studying Scripture.  Has anyone read either of these books?  If so, what did you think about them?
