Overview

The Jesus Lecture is an insightful book based around a true story. For three consecutive nights I had a recurring dream that I attended a live lecture given by Jesus on stage at my old Alma Mater. The dream was so real, vivid and compelling, I wrote down all the ideas and concepts that Jesus discussed. In less than 12,000 words the book contains renewed wisdom and nine contemporary insights designed to help the reader deal with life's challenges thru the persona of Jesus.

This book is truly unique in the fact that the Jesus Lecture does not "sell hope." Instead it delivers a long over-due common sense approach to spirituality utilizing the lost art of critical thinking. It severely rips apart dogma and doctrine utilizing a Jesus persona that's quite different from traditional Jesus many of us have learned about. This Jesus is funny, positive, negative, judgmental, preachy, sincere, passionate, inspiring, friendly and loving simultaneously. Most of all he is relatable and he smiles.

Regardless of the reader's religious or spiritual philosophies, the Jesus Lecture speaks to the heart. It's remarkably inspirational, full of tough-love and distinctive. This book is a "Must-Read!"

I would like to start this review off by letting you know I have never written a review before nor would I ever purchase or read a book entitled, The Jesus Lecture. I was raised in a mixed Catholic and Protestant household. I’ve been an atheist since the age of 20. I am now 39. One day while helping my friend paint her living room, I discovered The Jesus Lecture on her kitchen table. To date, she has purchased 30 copies and has given them to friends and associates. Bitten by the curiosity-bug, during our lunch break I began to read this book and after that I could not put it down. Needless to say the paint job was delayed. As of now I am writing to say I’m a covert and I appreciate this book and its wisdom. The Jesus Lecture has exposed me to a Jesus that I never met in my upbringing. I never knew I could believe in a God that did not condemn or judge me. I was never taught that I was valuable regardless of my beliefs. I did not know that as an atheist I could still recognize the “God-Force” in everyone and everything. I believe your dream and book are truly inspired because it’s has opened up a spiritual place in my heart, that I never knew was there. Thank you so very much for your book and wisdom. It has touched me and made me a better person. And for me to say something like that is quite an accomplishment.

I really loved this book. It was a whole new approach to spirituality and humanity! It makes no promises or guarantees, it simply approaches life's issues with an altruistic mind-set. I enjoyed the 9 Creed-Busters, and throughly enjoyed the new or updated 10 Commandments (or suggestions.) I plan on sharing this message with others, and sharing some copies of the book with friends and relatives. A great book promoting peace without dogma. Great job!

The message in this book is for ALL regardless of their religion, delivered in plain English. The author recounts a recurring dream in which he was in the audience attending a lecture given by Jesus. It is thought provoking and good information. It is a true story and I recommend this book to ALL!
