This review is from: Gagging Jesus (Kindle Edition)
This is the first time I've come across Phil Moore. I decided to buy the book having read a favourable review by the Evangelical Alliance.
My immediate reaction was to how easy it is to read. Phil is a great communicator to ordinary people like me. Having said that his brutal honesty in reviewing what Jesus REALLY meant does not make for comfortable reading - but then that is the point of the book. I quickly became aware of how I had fallen into the trap of listening to those who choose to dilute God's word for the sake of 'comfortable' evangelism or to make Jesus that little bit more appealing to non-believers. There is none of that in this book. It's refreshingly honest and it's no nonsense style leaves no room for misunderstanding what Jesus was actually saying to His listeners then, and also now. What Jesus said would have offended His listeners 2000 years ago - and it really ought to have the same effect on us today.
