A Good Book, In Spite of What Any Given Oddball Thinks,
This review is from: Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus: How the Jewishness of Jesus Can Transform Your Faith (Hardcover)
Re: The April 17 Review of this book and low rating from Thinkerthinker:
In all candor, I'm not quite sure what bearing "Buddhist Asoka", "the original Therapeutae", etc. have on the matter. It sounds like Thinkerthinker is a tidge too much in love with his or her ability to "think" and wants to shower us with his/her voluminous knowledge of all things esoteric..and ultimately irrelevant.
The book's about Jesus's Jewishness and how we've missed the point of many of His sayings by viewing them through a Western lens. This is an interesting premise and it--unlike Thinkerthinker's meandering and self-important review--is well-developed in the book. Highly recommended, more Christians need to understand the roots of their faith--they certainly aren't Hellenistic!
