Changed My Perspective
Posted July 10, 2010
As someone who has gone to church her whole life, I got to say this book shook up the way I viewed this religion called Christianity. Jesus used to be a concept to me rather than a person because I heard so much about him but had never experienced the personhood that is Jesus. Once you seriously dive into the teachings of Jesus and match them up to the teachings of the North American church, your perspective is turned upside-down! I honestly could not put it down (and that doesn't happen often with a non-fiction book). This book also made me realize my fascination with theology and looking deeper into the text culturally & personally as opposed to reading it superficially.
If you are a "lifer" in the church or if you are a seeker looking to find the essence of this mysterious person named Jesus, I recommend this book!
