This book is advertised as being written for an audience that is searching for the truth about Jesus. That being said, I've been a Christian my whole life and I learned plenty of new things while reading this book. It is very clear and easy to read. The author walks the reader through the New Testament gospels, summarizing and emphasizing the main points.
I especially enjoyed his inclusion of the historical context. The author warns at the beginning of the book that he often writes whatever pops This book is advertised as being written for an audience that is searching for the truth about Jesus. The author warns at the beginning of the book that he often writes whatever pops into his head, so expect some random humor. Dec 17, Laura Slusar rated it really liked it.
This book accomplishes exactly what the title promises. I really wish the "What's the point? Also, the author does a good job providing evidence of the existence and truth about Jesus He really does keep religion out of it, which is refreshing. I highlighted a lot in this book. When someone asks me "Um, so why did you become a Christian all of a sudden? One thing though, the author has an odd sense of humor and can get side-tracked.
Sometimes I smiled at the jokes, but other times I just skipped over the long, drawn-out analogies. I wish a few things were left out because it would have made the book more succinct. Other than that, no complaints! Oct 13, Greg Dill rated it did not like it. This book is promoted by Cru formerly Campus Crusade for Christ a conservative evangelical ministry whose sole purpose is to proselytize.
Similarly, this book is written by a conservative evangelical. Do not be misled by the title of this book. The title is intended to lure unsuspecting seekers into adopting the conservative evangelical perspective of Jesus. Mar 02, Brian Christensen rated it really liked it Shelves: faith. Several good thoughts to chew on. One thing I liked is why parables were the best way for Christ to teach Something you have to seek.
Nov 06, Joseph rated it it was amazing Shelves: theology. Jesus without Religion is very well balanced. The book is aimed largely as the spiritually-hungry non-Christian, hoping to open their eyes not to Christianity, but to the real thing that matters, Jesus the true biblical Jesus, that is. I think Rick James does an excellent job. It is orthodox remaining grounded in the Bible and affirming Jesus' death, resurrection, and deity , yet it is simple and straight-forward, not getting very "religious. It's not enough to settle the matter for a skeptic, but enough to get those with open hearts and minds to at least rethink assumptions that Christianity is a bunch of baloney and consider looking into the matter further.
It's conversational style, straightforward presentation, and sufficient depth of content makes it an excellent evangelism tool, or a good reminder for the follower of Jesus of why we care about all of this anyway. Oct 13, Linda rated it did not like it. This book is written as if someone wrote out their thoughts on Jesus and never edited a thing.
It's confusing to follow and I am a Christian already. There are too many worldly examples which are hard to follow since he seems like all he does is ramble. By the time he gets to what you think is the point you've forgotten what the beginning was about.

This book was written for the unsaved who want to know about Jesus but don't really want to know the Truth or be saved. I would not recommend this b This book is written as if someone wrote out their thoughts on Jesus and never edited a thing. I would not recommend this book to anyone. Jul 27, Liliana Mejia rated it liked it. Jan 24, John rated it liked it Shelves: apologetics , christianity , religion. A good introductory apologetics book. It presents a very condensed, accessible description of the Gospels and Jesus. Rick James does a good job of presenting topics simply.
For the average reader and spiritual seeker, this book will be good. However, the more skeptical would certainly pose tougher questions that this book may not be able to fully answer. Even so, this is a good, quick read for an explanation of why Christianity makes "sense. Feb 02, Megan rated it liked it Shelves: not-kept-books. This book is all about context. The context of the Gospels and Jesus and his teachings. Since I payed zero attention in my religious education classes as a child, this book what quite interesting. I have not read the Bible, but at least a little of it will make more sense if I ever do pick it up.
The author does use a lot of modern day analogies, which sometimes gets a bit annoying. Otherwise it was an interesting read, which is good for a book I got free sometime during college. Jul 28, Joel rated it liked it. Rick James writes with wit, humor, and honest feelings that instantly cause you to think you're talking with an old friend.
This books examines who Jesus is and how he worked on earth, effectively picking him up out of the trappings of religion and showing Christ for who he is. While it is a great read, I wish it would have been written to a higher reading level.

I enquire after no man's, and trouble none with mine: nor is it given to us in this life to know whether your's or mine, our friend's or our foe's are exactly the right. Jefferson to Charles Thomson. Jefferson to Timothy Pickering.
I know that the case you cite, of Dr Drake, has been a common one. I do not wish to trouble the world with mine, nor to be troubled for them. I have little doubt that the whole of our country will soon be rallied to the Unity of the Creator, and, I hope, to the pure doctrines of Jesus also.
Jefferson to John Adams. But we may hope that the dawn of reason and freedom of thought in these United States will do away all this artificial scaffolding, and restore to us the primitive and genuine doctrines of this the most venerated reformer of human errors. A view of Jefferson's religious beliefs by David Holmes, retired professor of religion at the College of William and Mary.
Without Christianity, What Year Would It Be?
Jefferson's Religious Beliefs. He said pretty much everything I was gearing up to write. The beating of the moneychangers might count as an act of violence committed by Jesus BTW. How many would consider this state of affairs unjust? And those moslems who would object to my comments : Are they sincere, or is it taqqiyah? As a non theist, as a woman, and as a US citizen, it is chilling to me how many Americans are willing to compromise on sharia law being administered in the USA.
Many moslems believe that sharia law, as divinely inspired,should he imposed on ALL humans. But FGM?

The percentage of those who claim to be Christian traditionalist is pretty small, though there are traditionalist Christian MRA sites on which most or all the posters will be Christian. Excellent post. To your list of muslim foibles which are tolerated I would add one more: Rotherham. I am sure you know what I mean.
I know almost nothing about the Koran, but if Mr Lindom is correct about abrogation, it sounds like the Koran went the opposite direction from the Bible. The biblical old testament was pretty hard-line and god-fearing, punishment, etc. Actually Muhammad was insane, and hearing voices. They do not and will not give up. It has worked so far, so why should they? One, as already pointed out above, is to limit terrorism to non-State actors, an artful dodge. This is a deliberate distortion of reality; States continue to imprison, torture and kill their citizens at a rate orders of magnitude greater than all the non-State terrorists combined.
The earlier monstrous State terrorism by Mao Tse-tung or Stalin need hardly be cited. The second error is in its way, even more serious, a circular argument ascribing religious motivation to violent extremists from Islamic countries. He states:. Let me get this straight.
