Usually enjoy anything from the Jesus Seminar or the Westar Institute. This book attempts to talk to a number of different audiences. One is the walking wounded bitter disillusioned ex church members who found their church spared love but not condemnation. Another is the reliable but ambient hungry member who attends but drives on a empty tank. A third is those who have never really studied Christianity or Judaism to know if they reject them. He talks about others but the purpose of the book is to engage you to be honest to Jesus so find out what that means.

You will be surprise what you don't have to accept!

My position is that I am a seeker on a journey but I am born within Judaic-Christian culture so their spiritual treasures will resonant with me in different ways then the treasures of other expressions of spirituality. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0060627581, Paperback)

Honest to Jesus is far and away the best book about the goals and work of the contemporary Historical Jesus movement. Robert W. Funk is director of the Westar Institute, which sponsors an annual Jesus seminar in which scholars attempt to establish which events recorded in the gospels actually happened and which did not. In Honest to Jesus, Funk describes these scholars' professional methodologies and personal goals, and summarizes their surprising findings. His prose is clear, his passion is bracing, and his conclusions are challenging. Funk's Jesus, in the end, emerges as a revolutionary figure for a new age, without being the least bit New Age-y.
