5.0 out of 5 stars A lot of controversy packed into such a small book!
I have a lot of time for longer books (which is good because I need it to get to the end) but it's also refreshing to have the sort of book you can pick-up and come back to because the chapters are nice and short. Phil Moore manages to pack a whole lot of content into fifteen short chapters which are probably best read with a little time for reflection after each...

1.0 out of 5 stars Gagging Jesus
Gagging Jesus. The author rightly warns about diluting the life and words of Lord Jesus into fake water, as tailoring Jesus according to own taste is a common attitude. Unfortunately, in one of his Chapters, "Jesus on sex", Phil Moore himself is, in my opinion, gagging Jesus into a sensual god by comparing the love in The Trinity with sex in marriage (see pages 52-53)...

This review is from: Gagging Jesus (Kindle Edition)
If you are a Christian or not, this book is a must. Want to read about what Jesus said in a way that doesn't gloss over the tricky or uncomfortable bits.

5.0 out of 5 stars a collection of conservative evangelical sermons, 18 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gagging Jesus: Things Jesus Said We Wish He Hadn't (Paperback)
This is not a radical book as the title suggests it may be. The sermons, which are meant to be challenging, were no doubt pleasant to hear when they were first preached but I don't think it will prove to be a 'radical classic'.

Gagging Jesus. The author rightly warns about diluting the life and words of Lord Jesus into fake water, as tailoring Jesus according to own taste is a common attitude. Unfortunately, in one of his Chapters, "Jesus on sex", Phil Moore himself is, in my opinion, gagging Jesus into a sensual god by comparing the love in The Trinity with sex in marriage (see pages 52-53). That is to me at best spiritual blindness and at worst blasphemy. Phil Moore ought to tell his church that he has failed in this matter. There are otherwise many good things in his book, but for his failure on the sex topic, I cannot honor this book with many stars.

Sex in marriage is meant to be based on love and friendship and is to be performed in decent manners, and is not meant to compensate Christians for moderation in other areas. Sex can easily be perverted into a counterfeit god, even in marriage (see Timothy Keller "Counterfeit Gods"). To be one body in Christ Jesus has nothing to do with sensuality, but much with agape love. In heaven there are no marriages among the saved ones, and no sex - according to the Bible!
