    " A wonderful book that really changed the way I look at things. A deep read, but easy to take important lessons from. "

    " Conceptually very interesting, but it was a very heavy read and I don't enjoy having to continually put books down to let them "breathe". I'm glad I made notes so I can look back and know I didn't imagine how bogged down I felt when I first read this. "

    " A nice follow to Miles' literary analysis of the Old Testament. I like the exploration of Jesus' varied NT roles. I still believe the image of God/Jesus as bridegroom/husband invites abuse and rationalization, though. Can't we just be friends? Both of Miles' books will merit re-reading. "

    " What made GOD go from a warrior/blood-thirsty/vengeful/-all-powerful invisible entity to a mortal miracle maker hell-bent on suicide? Pick up this stellar book (I dont usually use the world stellar all that much either)and find out. Just the facts Mam' "

    " Richard says: This was a completely original interpretation of the life of Christ, and gave a fresh insight into the Gospels. "

    " Excellent on first blush. J Miles can really write and his analytical skills (not simply textual, mind) are filed to a fine, sharp needle "

    " As good as God A Biography. Another spellbinding read! "
