Perhaps the best review is to let Jefferson speak for himself: "To the corruptions of Christianity I am indeed opposed, but not to the genuine precepts of Jesus himself. I am a Christian in the only sense in which he wished anyone to be: sincerely attached to his doctrines in preference to all others and ascribing to him every human excellence, believing he never claimed any other" (from a letter to Dr. Benjamin Rush, April 21, 1803).

This book goes deep into the root of what is missing in America today. Morality. Written by possibly one of the greatest minds ever, Jefferson goes into the meaning of the Bible.

No matter your view whether the son of God or man, miracle performer or moral storyteller, theologians and historians agree Jesus was/is real. His life has stood the test of time, which is likely the ultimate proof anyone really needs that he lived and embodied the views and teachings he espoused.

The book is an abridged rendition of the bibles message with the emphasis on Jesus as natural rather than supernatural as Mr Jefferson veers away from what he likely understood as religious fantasy in the miracles portrayed. It's decent as another perspective but not definitive.

Anyone who took what they believed and likely knew to be real to the ultimate lengths as Jesus did is truly extraordinary. I hope his act was validated to him on death as he certainly deserved it to be so.

...but no need for one either. Jefferson's Jesus is a real man, doesn't do miracles, doesn't rise from the dead, and doesn't need to. When he dies, that's the end, but he leaves you with so many good examples & parables explaining what it is to be a good person, that you don't need any supernatural stuff. Here is a Jesus for the agnostics & atheists, a man *anyone* can believe in & follow.

I completely understand what Jefferson was trying to do with this bible. I think he should have explained the miracles instead of simply removing them. I am religious educator and the miracles need not be removed but merely understood as moral teachings (i.e. the feeding of the 5000 is not a magic trick that turns one small boy's lunch into food for all, rather it is another form of parable that shows how when we share even what little we have with everyone in need then we will have heaven on earth, by today's standards we produce enough food on a daily basis to feed 8x our population and yet there are nearly 1/3 who starve every day, if we would share all that we have there would be no need for hunger and it would fulfill one of the main precepts of the 'kingdom of heaven'.
