MY FRIEND JESUS is the story of one man's unusual encounter with 'Jesus' in the flesh. It is classed as fiction, but because of the allegorical nature of the story, it almost comes off more like a devotional book, with a lot of scripture references and lots of 'teachable moments' that are meant to explain the basic tenents of the Christian faith. Mr. Lombardo's writing style is quite beautiful - very elegant and eloquent, which is something that I appreciated about the book. However, the story line itself sometimes dragged for me. Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying I didn't like it, since I certainly see the merit in the book if a peaceful, lulling allegory is what you are after. When reading fiction for pleasure, however, I prefer a gripping story with more action and intrigue. This is not a book that I was able to read in one sitting. It was better taken in small portions, where I could then ponder the 'lesson', so to speak. For those reasons, I have given the book three stars. MY FRIEND JESUS might be just the book for you if you want a thought provoking, pastoral view of Christianity.
