Library Journal says, "Holcomb challenges believers to examine the most perplexing and offensive aspect of Jesus' character in the Gospels: his indifference to the human values that we've come to associate with Christianity in America today, such as dedication to family and country, prosperity through faith and observance of religious practices. He emphasizes the inscrutability of the divine law of love and forgiveness for which Jesus lived and died. Humorous but perceptive of the Gospels that lay readers will enjoy."

About the Author:

Duncan Holcomb is a committed young Episcopalian, active in Christian education for many years. He challenges us to hear the gospels as stories and to meet a Jesus who teaches a set of values decidely different from our own.

From Library Journal:

Holcomb challenges believers to examine the most perplexing and perhaps offensive aspect of Jesus' character in the Gospels: his indifference to the human values that we've come to associate with Christianity in America today, such as dedication to family and country, prosperity through faith, and observance of religious practices. He illustrates his points through passages of the Gospels and letters of the apostles. Above all, Holcomb emphasizes the inscrutability of the divine law of love and forgiveness for which Jesus lived and died. A humorous but perceptive treatment of the Gospels that lay readers will enjoy.
