Book Review: Bart Ehrman’s Did Jesus Exist?: The Historical Argument for Jesus of Nazareth

Well, unfortunately I'm rather livid at the moment because even though I had written I do not have the time or energy for a proper review due to severely bad health and a late time of night, I had just spent 1.5 hours working on the BEGINNING of a review, presumably saving as I went …

If this doesn't discredit ALL CHRISTIANS in everyone's eyes, than what will? Trump a disciple of Jesus? Trump EVERY disciple of Jesus rolled into one? Are the Christians going totally insane now? At this point, with 81% of all white evangelicals having voted for Trump, it's obvious to me that …

A Review of Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time

Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time: The Historical Jesus and the Heart of Contemporary Faith by Marcus J. Borg My rating: 1 of 5 stars For a long time now, I’ve heard that Marcus Borg is THE intellectual theologian of liberal Christians and as a result, I’ve been wanting to read some of his …

A Review of Misquoting Jesus

Misquoting Jesus: The Story Behind Who Changed the Bible and Why by Bart D. Ehrman My rating: 5 of 5 stars I read Misquoting Jesus through carefully and thoughtfully and concluded it was an excellent book written by an author who clearly knows of which he speaks.

A Review of Paul: The Mind of the Apostle

Paul: The Mind of the Apostle by A.N. Wilson My rating: 4 of 5 stars I FINALLY finished this book! It took me forever because it's fairly dry and the content doesn't interest me as much as that in some other books. Still, this was a fairly interesting book to read. The author is apparently …

A Review of Jesus Was a Liberal

Jesus Was a Liberal: Reclaiming Christianity for All by Scotty McLennan My rating: 4 of 5 stars This book is interesting. Scotty McLennan doesn't actually argue very vehemently that the historical Jesus was truly a liberal, but that a liberal political and spiritual ideology can be compatible with Christianity. So, that being said, the title’s …

A Review of Speaking My Mind

Speaking My Mind: The Radical Evangelical Prophet Tackles the Tough Issues Christians Are Afraid to Face by Tony Campolo My rating: 2 of 5 stars I was pretty disappointed with this book and that's a pity. I've seen Campolo's name bandied about in liberal Christian books and by liberal Christian authors for some time now, …

A Review of Reading the Bible Again for the First Time

Reading the Bible Again for the First Time: Taking the Bible Seriously but Not Literally by Marcus J. Borg My rating: 4 of 5 stars I found this book really engaging, but I can now see why so many fundamentalists/evangelicals view Marcus Borg as little more than a heretic. He argues that you shouldn't read …
