4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Read, November 16, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: My Jesus Year: A Rabbi's Son Wanders the Bible Belt in Search of His Own Faith (Hardcover)
Though the promo for the book stressed hilarity, there's much more to this year with Jesus than mere humor. As a Los Angeleno, I was struck by the stunning variety of "Jesus" experiences available within only a few hours of Atlanta. Cohen samples the beautiful solemnity of high church cathedral and self-denying cloister. The next thing you know he's rocking with full gospel as the only white guy in the building. His description of going to confession brought me into the confessional with him. The author is an honest reporter of what he experienced, and credits the year with deepening his appreciation for the faith into which he was born. My only quibble is that the subtitle is a better description than the title. If only we could spend a year with Jesus, and not with Christians. But that is another story. This book is a great - and worthwhile - read. Thanks, Benyamin!

I loved your post ! I did spend years with Christians and later met Jesus........and it was so special, I did not want to share that experience with anyone in the sense that I envied the Jewish people using a prayer shaw because I thought it kept out all distractions and it was just you and God.
