4.0 out of 5 stars Generally good..., September 7, 2005
This review is from: Velvet Elvis: Repainting the Christian Faith (Hardcover)
I read this book on the recommendation of a good friend of mine and I certainly found it worth my time. I appreciate the author's desire to get at the heart of the way of Jesus. I think he does well to walk the reader through Jewish culture/history to add another level of understanding to New Testament accounts that I think many have heard and probably studied.

The book is a quick read, honest, real, and seems to do well to give a better understanding of who Jesus is.

4 Stars because of its brevity and lack of cohesiveness between chapters. The topics he touches on could very well be expanded upon and made into 2-3 books. Scripture within the text of the book would also greatly improve the value of the book. Overall, however, it's well worth the money.
