    Provocative and inspiring!

    I suspect that George Elerick was a thoroughly annoying kid. You know the type. The kid in class that always interrupted the teachers with questions. The kid who annoyed the teachers by challenging them and presenting alternative understandings to the lessons. The kid who had the courage to voice the questions that many of us had, but were afraid to ask for fear of being ridiculed.

    George brings those same inquisitive and analytical characteristics to a field where such questions have long been discouraged; that of theology in his book; Jesus Bootlegged. George fearlessly strips down the common doctrines and teaching of the church in attempt to re-discover the spirit of that radical first century movement of Christ-followers. George boldly asks the questions that others are afraid to ask, and then delves into the search for answers. His passion for Christ is obvious both in that fearless and never-ending search and in the deeply personal reflections upon his own life.

    Read this book and you will be challenged, yet inspired. You may not agree with some of George's conclusions, and I suspect that the author is perfectly fine with that, as he himself states in the book's foreword: "I don't know if it's about an arrival at all. Because that would assume that there is an in and out club to be a part of. So the book invites people to let go of a dualistic way of thinking, and become more aware that God pulls this whole thing together. It is about being broken and fixed and in jaw-dropping awe of what (life) still yet has to teach me."
