Local author and syndicated columnist David Limbaugh will sign copies of his latest book, “The True Jesus: Uncovering the Divinity of Christ in the Gospels,” at 7 p.m. today at Barnes & Noble in Cape Girardeau. Though he initially intended “The True Jesus” to be a parsing of the entire New Testament, he said he realized the New Testament was too large for such a task. So he narrowed his focus to the Gospels. The book includes contextual history of the time between the Old and New Testaments as well as an examination of the literary qualities of the New Testament. But the book’s purpose is a deeper understanding and appreciation of the figure of Jesus. Limbaugh says the world rejected Jesus because he stood for something different. But striving for a deeper understanding of Christ is a step toward accepting him.
