Mix together a fair amount of history, a little bit of culture and an ample amount of theology and you have the recipe for "Simply Jesus". Historically it helps us see Jesus' place in a line of Messiahs, some coming before him and some after him(the last one as late as 100 years after Jesus' death). Culturally, we get a picture of the expectations surrounding Jesus, the excitement of a Messiah coming onto the scene and what one would look for if a Messiah was "outing" himself. But most important, theologically, this book is a discussion of how the church has done Jesus a real disservice by confining him to our church methods, programs, or making him our own "personal" saviour. I've listened to this book twice and probably will again.

What did you love best about Simply Jesus?
I have read many of NT Wrights books but I think that this one is the best that I have ever read. It was easy to follow and helped me gain a good framework for understanding Jesus.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Simply Jesus?
Learning about the other types of Messiah movements helped me understand Jesus' own moverment. I love it!
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It deeply gratified me and made me think.
Any additional comments?
I would recommend this book to long time Christians and to seekers alike.
