4.0 out of 5 stars Jesus: Lost in Translation?, 1 Jun 2011
This review is from: Jesus Bootlegged (Paperback)
George Elerick brings something unique here to the table, and that is how this book is presented... a good table conversation with a man who knows his stuff but doesn't come across as an egg-head or a snob about it. It feels more like a great discussion at a local coffee shop or pub about Jesus, and how so much of what he actually said or implied is lost or is misinterpreted by us due to the fact that we are simply not Jews living 2,000 plus years ago. You can tell that this is a man who knows his stuff, has studied his history, and is now looking to share all the little tidbits of information that make you re-look at various scriptures or stories that we have "known" for years in a brand new light.

This review is from: Jesus Bootlegged (Paperback)
We are made to be creatures of faith and trust. We submit to certain beliefs or disbeliefs, some are dogmatic, some are less so. Some use their beliefs or lack of to defend a need for social activism and passionate faith. Some people think Jesus intended to start a religion called Christianity, yet our most precious faith has become something it seems it should have never been. Jesus Bootlegged, comes as a pacey, provocative socio-historical look into the life and times of Jesus the teacher-rabbi, and the many questions raised by the resulting life of faith.

The popular faith piety of yesteryear no longer connects with the masses of people who have yet found nothing to replace it. The church that has institutionalized those beliefs is crumbling. Elerick is persuasive concerning the power of Jesus to more than survive, and that, stripped of projections and accretions, and described in the language of today, he can call together new communities of disciples. This is an engaging invitation to think smartly, talk honestly, and live faithfully and could be a helpful too for those in emerging culture. honest and truly helpful reading of Jesus that is emerging in our time. Elerick has written in an engaging way that draws from deep wells and deserves a wide hearing. Fresh and edgy in content, sadly only let down in the style, editing and finish.
