Customer Reviews

I am a Christian but found Mr. Starr's book had some very interesting points in it.
Margaret Barron
His writing is always a wonderful combination of heart and mind, with a nice subtle sense of humor thrown in there too.
Deli Om
I especially liked the chapter discussing the Jewish Jesus as depicted in Western Art, especially Renaissance painting.

Whether one is a Jew or a Christian, the Jewishness of Christ is an uneasy subject, prone to extra caution with political correctness.Over every discussion there looms the question:"Who says?" Dr.Bernard Starr, in his Jesus Uncensored addresses this question with depth, seriousness, meticulous research, and an easy accessibility by a scholarly or recreational reader. "Your Bible says it," he answers, quoting from passage after passage from the New Testament. Whenever Jesus is seen he is seen either speaking in, or on the way to a Synagogue; whenever he is mentioned, he is referred to as a Jew. He is born to Jewish parents, is circumcised, is given a rite of Dedication to The Temple; makes the bi-annual prescribed pilgrimages to The Temple in Jerusalem with his family, remains a pious, practicing Jew throughout his life, and is executed by the Romans as a Jew. Jesus never intends to start a new religion. His aim is to right social wrongs and to bring peace to a violent world. Dr. Starr takes great effort to substantiate his every point throughout the book with the original sources. An especially interesting part of this work is the museum walk Dr. Starr takes us through, showing us the step by step Christianisation of Jesus through the arts in the centuries following his death. The book is an unexpectedly easy read!

I found your book provocative in a healthy and meaningful way, well reasoned, well researched
and written with sincerity, integrity and humility. This is a debate that has waited for millennia
for such a voice as Dr. Bernard Starr whose book seeks to right a long and terrible untruth. Dr.
Starr's research reveals who is responsible fro Jesus' death, and also vindicates the Jewish people
of this horrific crime. Dr. Starr's personal journey and new found understanding speaks to truth,
and reminds us that Jesus was a pious and practicing Jew, that he spoke mainly in Synagogues,
and never sought to start a new religion. His mission was and remains to bring a lasting peace into
the violent and warring world. He courageously invites both Christians and Jews to join in open
dialogue and discussion, in order to restore healing and justice to the faithful practioners of both of
these world religions. It is time to end the historic injustice and incrimination of the Jewish people
who are innocent, and to accept the Jewishness of Jesus who came to bestow a lasting peace
among all humanity. Let us take the first steps to making peace among us, and for the world.

Mr. Starr raises some very interesting ideas. I especially liked the chapter discussing the Jewish Jesus as depicted in Western Art, especially Renaissance painting. Mr Starr takes us on a walking tour through the Metropolitan Museum of Art's rich collection citing specific examples and unpeeling layers to support his argument. From personal experience my first image of Jesus was a massive oil painting in the chapel at the Presbyterian kindergarten I went to in the South. With flaxen hair, blue eyes, and Roman features this image was the one we were raised on. There is a lot to think about here.

I very much enjoyed this simple to read and understand book by Starr. Although I was aware of most of the information presented, I was taken back at the "Jesus Phobia" chapter which appears to be the center of gravity for the work. This chapter explains why the Jews fear Jesus. Professor Starr does an excellent job reviewing early Christian and Jewish history and their interaction. The book represents an attempt on reconciliation of both faiths and the request of Jews to reclaim the faith of the Jew in Jesus. I highly recommend this concise history of the two interacting faiths to bring reconciliation to both.

I became aware of this book through reading several of Bernard Starr's articles for the Huffington Post, which I always enjoy. His writing is always a wonderful combination of heart and mind, with a nice subtle sense of humor thrown in there too. I was definitely intrigued by the title and subject of this book, and having been familiar with his writing, I thought it would be an easy and interesting Summer read. Though once I got into it, I realized it was far more interesting than I even thought -- it's downright fascinating!!! Some parts were even truly riveting!!! Having read Starr's bio on the Huffington Post site, as I was reading this book, more and more I was aware of how he really taps into his talent and experience as a college professor, as he presents countless enlightening facts about Jesus in the kind of way that a favorite teacher in college whose class you actually enjoyed and never wanted to miss, would. Starr's also a psychologist, and I could feel that advantage too, as he not only has a very clear sense of compassion and empathy for those who he writes about, he also does something that I especially love -- he has a way of putting the reader right in there, that kind of reminded me of the early 1970's Saturday Morning TV show 'You Are There!' hosted by Walter Cronkite. Only Starr takes that 'You Are There' device one step further, so that I suddenly found myself not just reading about these great iconic spiritual beings as historical figures, but Starr had me experiencing true empathy for those he writes about from a deeply human and very real, practical point of view that I never considered before (he does this several times throughout the book).Read more ›
