Steve Maltz is relatively new to the scene of Christian writers but has quickly established himself as a firm favourite, to those who know that there is so much more to apprehend in the Word of God than that which is often transmitted from many pulpits.
Humour is a great teaching vehicle and this book, like others of Steve is not short in this regard. Excellent, enlightening reading!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Bishop's New Clothes 14 July 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Naked Bishop: Being serious about what ain't right in the Church (Has the Church sold out to the World?) In his books, "The Naked Bishop" (Kindle) and "The Bishop's New Clothes" (paperback), Steve Maltz breaks the mould of modern day `comfort zone' preaching and teaching. Both books are written in an easy read, chatty style, attractively engaging the reader in an examination of the Body. Intrinsic in Maltz's writings is the challenge for `Christians' to examine themselves as Paul exhorts us to do: "Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?" (2 Corinthians 13:5). This is particularly pertinent and timely when Bishops have been put under pressure from inside the Church of England not to use their votes in the House of Lords to block the Same Sex Marriage Bill. Their fear was that voting down the Bill would backfire on them and reopen questions about the right of Bishops to sit in the House of Lords and even raise the prospect of disestablishment. Their fear of man appears to be greater than their fear of God. Why sit in the House of Lords if you are not going to represent the Lord of lords?

Spiritual insight is backed up by historical facts as in the chapter on The Cross. An example being the historical evidence Steve offers for the time of darkness at the Cross, citing two pagan historians, Thallus the Roman and Phlegon the Greek, who both make mention of the fact. Thallus was writing just a few years after the darkness spoken of and so would have been an actual eye-witness of that phenomenon. While the pagan commentators give an account that satisfies human reasoning, Steve stresses the spiritual dimension that "God was pouring out His wrath on His beloved son ... and it wasn't pretty. Hence the darkness." - God interacting with His Universe, affecting nature and His creatures. The author speaks of how the Church has been infiltrated with the Greek mind-set and secular humanism, and urges Christians to regain and embrace the mind of Christ and the Biblical, Hebraic mind-set of the first believers in Yeshua, and returning Christianity to the Hebraic matrix from which it emerged.

Both books make a refreshing read in an age of 'hotchpotch', 'pick n mix' Christianity. My suggestion is that one taste the short five-chapter Kindle version - only $2.99 (£1.53), and then go on to the full paperback version of some twenty chapters, when it is released in September 2013 priced at £10. Both versions will encouragingly challenge the reader to go deeper into the various subjects brought up, and to determine to live as true disciples of the Biblical Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach.
