This book is a little bit more personal to me, than the majority of books that I read. As I have moved further away from Christian teachings and started to enjoy and feel more empowered by Buddhist ones instead. I thought this would help me explain some things to my family. And in some ways, it did. But I left feeling a bit cheated as well but that's probably because this is so new to me.

An excellent book. Modern Christianity very much forgets that Jesus was a Jewish rabbi who taught and spoke like his rabbinical counterparts of his time. If we but grasped that concept our faith practices and understanding would change significantly. Another well written and researched book. I didn't agree with all the positions taken, but they were largely minor disagreements. Read it and have your beliefs challenged.

BookDadGirlDad @Jenniebooks Ah...now you see my politics. I love DeSantis. I've never been a fan of the extreme measures imposed upon us. I have no issues with precaution but oppose the coercion and mandates. I think Florida is a bastion of freedom and the policies set forth and the results prove it so. 2mo
Jenniebooks What about Stop woke act and his fight with Disney possibly raising taxes? Do you think he will be president? 2mo
BookDadGirlDad @Jenniebooks I think Disney is out of line. When you come out and publicly state you will fight a legislature Chosen by the people, you invite a fight. DeSantis gave it to them. The dissolution of the district occurs in 2023. Plenty of time to keep it in place. Disney is stuck. DeSantis for president? Possible. I'd vote for him. 2mo
Jenniebooks Do you think G-d cares about politics? Should America be a theocracy? 2mo
BookDadGirlDad @Jenniebooks I think we have choices to make. There is nothing going on that surprises the Creator. We won't make America a bastion of Christianity like many Christian Nationalists think (many of whom are anti-Semitic to the core. How ironic) We have a responsibility to make wise decisions on our leaders. Theocracy happens in the millennium and beyond 2mo
Jenniebooks Some Christians are the problem. They don‘t accept that the country is diverse. They want country for free white men. Everyone else is excluded from the promise and potential of America 2mo
BookDadGirlDad @Jenniebooks I can't disagree. Those people exist and I have an issue with them. 2mo
Jenniebooks Have to stay away from holier than thou hypocrites. They do the worst damage. Do you celebrate Christmas and Easter? Excuse me for my ignorance. I don‘t celebrate any holidays. 2mo
BookDadGirlDad @Jenniebooks I used to!! I slowly began to have a "distaste" for egg hunts at churches and trees in sanctuaries. Once our family delved into Torah, we decided these holidays were not something we should do. We observe the Feast days of the Father (as best we can knowing there is no Temple). 2mo
Jenniebooks I wouldn‘t want to observe. Pagan holidays I‘ve heard Jesus‘s real birthday is in June . Do you think someday G-d will tell us where Ark of the covenant is? 2mo
BookDadGirlDad @Jenniebooks I think Jesus was born near Passover or Tabernacles. All theory though. The Ark of the Covenant would be an earth shattering discovery. 2mo
Jenniebooks Would you want to go to wailing wall in Jerusalem? 2mo
Jenniebooks Do you think Jesus would have been great leader for Israel if he lived longer? 2mo
BookDadGirlDad @Jenniebooks Depends on your view of Messiah. 2mo

I am not a religious person, but I could not pass up this book in which Madeline L‘Engle, inspired by Giotto‘s frescoes in the Scrovegni Chapel, retells the story of Jesus Christ‘s life.

Thinking of musical ideas, my buddy suggested we adapt this novella. After reading it, I see its potential. “I am risen!”

I ordered this today. Advent begins Sunday, November 28. We enjoyed her Lent Devotional this year and trust this one to be worthwhile as well.

SamanthaMarie I'll have to look this one up :) 8mo
BookBabe 😃 How do you like it so far? 6mo
CogsOfEncouragement @BookBabe It is great. Nice and short for busy December evenings with my husband and teen son. Terrific way to meditate on all Jesus is. 6mo
