By removing the supernateral elements of the narative and focusing on what Jesus acctually said, Jefferson has created a Gospel for all people, believers and skeptics alike. A truly enlighenting text that helps show what our founding fathers really did believe. Christian ethics and Reformation ideals of self-discovery at its very best.

This version of the Jefferson Bible-or as Jefferson titled it, The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth, is a fascinating document.This is Jefferson's version of the Gospels as he thought they should have been -with all miracles excluded. In this work Jesus is a philosopher, not a savior. This Nook book lacks an introduction or any notes, both of which would have been very helpful. Still for a dollar, you are getting an important historical document.

Pres. Thomas Jefferson was an independent thinker when it came to religion. His Bible is a modern day "cut & paste". I found it very interesting. Don't iss the biography of Jefferson at the end of the book.
