"Writer, journalist, ecologist and religion commentator Rex Weyler’s latest book, The Jesus Sayings: The Quest For His Authentic Message (House of Anansi Press, 2008), provides a fresh and provocative view of Jesus’ life, message and mission. This scholarly work raises a number of important questions, such as: How did the message get confused and misrepresented, and what is its relevance in the 21st century?
One of the more recent events in British Columbia’s 150-year history was the birth, in Vancouver in 1969, of what would become the Greenpeace Foundation and, later, Greenpeace International. Rex Weyler was there from early on, as photographer, reporter and chronicler of the movement. His 2004 book, Greenpeace: How a Group of Ecologists, Journalists and Visionaries Changed the World, is an insider’s look at the iconic organization. Rex Weyler received a Pulitzer Prize nomination for his Native American history, Blood of the Land." (christiguc)
