Colin Duriez's compelling book brings to life events in the Roman Empire and beyond

Colin Duriez's compelling book brings to life events in the Roman Empire and beyond. As we look back on that remarkable year, we can see from the perspective of world history that it was dominated by two people - a Roman and a Jew. The Roman was the Emperor Tiberius who was trying to end the mischief caused by his deputy Sejanus, while also keeping a tight reign on the administration of his vast and diverse empire. The Jew was Jesus who was put to death by one of Tiberius's minor governors, Pontius Pilate.

He has published many articles, books and other written works, and he has spoken to a variety of literary, academic and professional groups. AD 33: The Year That Changed the World.

AD 33 was the year when an obscure religious teacher died a criminal's death in an outpost of the Roman Empire, an event which had world-changing consequences in the form of the beginnings of Christianity. Lagi oleh Colin Duriez. Dorothy L Sayers: A Biography: Death, Dante and Lord Peter Wimsey.

Colin Duriez’s book AD 33 – The Year that Changed . By the middle of the book, I felt as if I were plodding along in a historical textbook. Overall, AD 33 was somewhat disappointing.

Colin Duriez’s book AD 33 – The Year that Changed the World has no shortage of such details. Duriez manages to capture many of the important moments of AD 33, especially Jesus’ death and resurrection. Duriez’s book seeks to explain some of the reasons why this year was so important, and how it changed the world. Perhaps, that is the problem with his book. I would love to see someone do a book similar to this that compares Jesus’ Kingdom to Rome’s imperial power.

AD 33 was the year when an obscure religious teacher died a criminal's death in an outpost of the Roman Empire, an event which had world-changing consequences in the form of the beginnings of Christianity. What was the world like in that momentous year? In this breathtaking book, events in the Roman Empire and beyond are covered in order to obtain a picture of the historical setting of the year of Christ's death.

And here we have another volume in the ever-growing collection of books to put their focus on a single year in history. Of course, in reality, a single year can't be isolated from the flow of history in the years around it; still, it is an interesting trend in popular history books that is not without its pleasures. In this case, Mr. Duriez puts the spotlight on 33 AD.

As any good Christian knows, 33 AD is the year that Jesus of Nazareth was crucified outside of Jerusalem. For believers, this was also the year of his resurrection and ascension. It is also the year that the Christianity got its start. Even for non-believers, this was an event that would have a huge impact on the millennia that followed, making this year a good topic for a book. And Mr. Duriez handles it fairly well.

Obviously, much of the book is taken up with the events in and around Jerusalem. The key players are all here--Jesus, the apostles, Pilate, Herod, Caiaphas, Annas--but Duriez goes beyond simple biography and a recitation of events. He gives some real insight into the social structure of the time and why it is likely that events unfolded the way they did. Additionally, he makes an effort to give us the bigger picture. Apart from Jerusalem, he spends quite a lot of time describing events in Rome, the intrigues of Tiberius' court and how that impacted events in the provinces. (He also devotes a few pages to events of Asia and the Americas, but this material is minimal and less successful.)

Clearly, Duriez is coming at his material from the aspect of a believer. Still, he doesn't let his faith overwhelm the text. He works from plenty of non-biblical source material and he tries to address "scientific" evidence. In this, his ability varies, but the attempt makes for a book that respects a more universal readership.

In the end, I would call this a book of good amateur scholarship. There is a nice synthesis of historical and religious sources molded into the story Duriez wants to tell. It has definite appeal to a Christian audience but is not so religious that it would overwhelm readers of other faiths. It is a solid history book for a popular audience.

When I first purchased this book I was expecting a history book that would provide a good insight to the debate on AD30 versus AD33 for the death of Christ. I was a little disappointed in the fact that it was not a historical account but rather the book was told in a storied fashion. However, I must say, he is a very good story teller. The way he weaved the events around the time period chosen was sensational. I was impressed by the way he went back forth between the Roman world and the local setting around Jerusalem.
I could not give 5 stars however because I feel Mr. Duriez misrepresented those on the AD30 side. He seemed to indicate that those who choose AD30 as the death of Christ try to squeeze in the ministry of Christ into one year. This is in no way true! AD30 advocates choose 2.5 or 3.5 years as the time for the ministry of Christ. They usually adopt AD27 as the start of his ministry which coincides with Tiberius' 15th year (using inclusive reckoning starting with his co-regency of AD12). Mr. Duriez states that the 46th year of Herod re-building the temple started in 20bc which would bring this date to AD29 (or the start of Jesus' ministry for AD33 advocates). His math is less to be desired. If one calculates the 46th year starting in 20bc it comes to AD27 and not AD29. AD27 was actually a sabbatical year according to Ben Zion Wacholder. This actually matches up well with John 4:35-37. I am not totally convinced that AD30 is the year of the Lord's crucifixion. That is why I purchased this book. However, I believe I am more aware of the arguments for each side. Mr. Duriez seems naive to the evidences offered from the AD30 advocates.
One final note: In this book, Mr. Duriez makes a statement without further comment. He states unequivocally that all scholars universally accept the Q document. I take exception to this statement. I believe the Q document is almost universally rejected. There are very few "scholars" that accept this as the source for the synoptic Gospels. The few scholars that do accept it are generally liberal in their beliefs.
Not to be too hard on Mr. Duriez. I would recommend this book because he does a terrific job of painting the scene especially piecing together the scenery around the empty tomb.
