Imaginary Jesus
by Matt Mikalatos | Genre: Non Fiction-Misc
Release Date: April 2010
 

Imaginary Jesus is an hilarious, fast-paced, not-quite-fictional story thatís unlike anything youíve ever read before. When Matt Mikalatos realizes that his longtime buddy in the robe and sandals isnít the real Jesus at all, but an imaginary one, he embarks on a mission to find the real thing. On his wild ride through time, space, and Portland, Oregon, he encounters hundreds of other Imaginary Jesuses determined to stand in his way (like Legalistic Jesus, Perpetually Angry Jesus, and Magic 8 Ball Jesus). But Matt wonít stop until he finds the real Jesusóand finally gets an answer to the question thatís haunted him for years. Be warned: Imaginary Jesus may bring you face-to-face with an imposter in your own life.

Eye-Opening Look at How We View Jesus | Posted July 01, 2012

With a title like My Imaginary Jesus, you might think this book was sacrilegious but you'd be mistaken.  Matt Mikalatos has taken this strange idea and used it to readers face to face with some (hard?) spiritual truths.


Matt stars as the protagonist of this story, a Christian who discovers the Jesus who accompanies him is imaginary.  He meets the Apostle Peter and a talking donkey named Daisy who join him as he tries to discover who the real Jesus is (just writing that seems absurd).  Along the way, Matt meets many other Jesuses: Testosterone Jesus, Magic 8-Ball Jesus, Legalist Jesus, TV Jesus, Free Will Jesus, and a multitude of others (again, it sounds sacrilegious).  At times almost too over-the-top, My Imaginary Jesus slowly pulls back and reveals some startling truths.  I particularly liked the section that speaks to Communion.


Several times as I was reading, I found myself wanting to share the story with my wife or pastor.  It is well-written and touching.  I am curious, though, about how much of Matt's actual life made its way into the book.


I give this a hearty recommendation!


I received this book from Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
