This book is not written for the skeptic or the Christian revisionist, like his previous book "The Real Jesus." Instead this material will penetrate the heart of the believer. As he wonderfully points out, "To be a Christian means to assert that Jesus is alive, is indeed life-giving Spirit." This book reminds the Christian that we should be learning from a living Jesus. To often, we look at Jesus as a piece of history. This is a wake-up call to Christians everywhere.
We are to learn from Jesus from great Christians, the church, and the New Testament. I find Dr. Johnson's book to be honest and forthright and appreciated his candor about the church and himself. This is a must read!
Even though I have a BA in English, I found myself pulling out the dictionary several times, and got several lessons on vocabulary and English. This can be either educational or distracting, depending on the motivations and inclinations of the reader. At times I found it educational. other times it seemed distracting. But I do admire the writer's skill and intelligence.
