The Gospel According to Jesus

I enjoyed the meticulous and thoughtful analysis of what Stephen MItchell perceives as what would be Jesus's teachings vs another author that has taken liberty to inject dogma.
In addition to this translation of who Jesus may have been and what he himself taught is the gift of Stephen MItchell's voice. Mr. Mitchell has a voice that is smooth and soothing; I could listen to Stephen read all day

Sadly, sound quality is poor.

Stephen Mitchell's reading of his eloquent, moving, challenging text is excellent, but the production quality is unfortunately very poor. It would be wonderful if this recording could be remastered to clarify the reading itself.
