    1 thought on “John the Baptist”

    1. Good thoughtsGood and interesting thoughts on the Baptist. I had never read a biography on John before, and this really opened my mind to what his life and ministry really encompassed.

    2. This was a real drag of a read. Speculations presented as facts. If I had any more of Meyer's books on my to-read lists, they would be deleted.
