as the man who started Christianity But it turns outhe wasn t just a man, and he didn t just start Christianity Most folks think of Jesusas an other worldly religious leader, a great moral teacher, or maybe they don t think of him at all But he had dirty feet, partied, cooked breakfastand got himself killed Who was this guy Why did people hate him so much And why should I care Whether you ve never looked closely at the Christian faith or you ve dismissed it as irrelevant, you owe yourself a glance at a Jesus unencumbered by stereotypes You might be surprised at what you

    Don Everts uses poetry and simplistic thought to explain the origin of the Christian faith in Jesus With Dirty Feet Some readers might find the text of this book distracting, and I would agree The words wander all over the page, moving in all directions and forms However, that doesn t take away from the beauty of Everts words The author strips away all of the religion and tradition of Christianity, looking at it with a fresh perspective The result is a biography of Jesus minus the religiou Don Everts uses poetry and simplistic thought to explain the origin of the Christian faith in Jesus With Dirty Feet Some readers might find the text of this book distracting, and I would agree The words wander all over the page, moving in all directions and forms However, that doesn t take away from the beauty of Everts words The author strips away all of the religion and tradition of Christianity, looking at it with a fresh perspective The result is a biography of Jesus minus the religious propaganda This book is directed at seekers trying to find out what Jesus is all about It breaks down the history and origins of the Christian faith, giving just the basics, but still doing so beautifully Great for anyone who is wanting to learn about Christianity

    Though it s billed as a book for non Christians, it seems muchappropriate for explaining to religious conservatives that Jesus is and was much less of a dictator than many believe If you already see Jesus as something of a hippie, you won t take much new away from this book.The author formats the text in a manner not unlike poetry, with ample use of line breaks, shape, and location within the page However, the novel utilization of superficially poetic format lacks as much effect as one m Though it s billed as a book for non Christians, it seems muchappropriate for explaining to religious conservatives that Jesus is and was much less of a dictator than many believe If you already see Jesus as something of a hippie, you won t take much new away from this book.The author formats the text in a manner not unlike poetry, with ample use of line breaks, shape, and location within the page However, the novel utilization of superficially poetic format lacks as much effect as one might hope In fact, one starts to expect that the format was used, instead, as a playful way to increase the page count.A good idea, perhaps, but rather poorly executed

    This is a Christian Primer like no other you have seen For those of you desiringart in faith this is the book for you It explores the reality of Jesus as a man as well as God Written in sense lines the book flows like one long poem that reveals a Jesus that is easy to fall in love with and fear his call on your life at the same time.

    As unique as the style is that Don used to write this book, the content that is poured into the unique style is equally unique I ve recommended it to numerous folks who, like me have been moved and challenged by it It will stretch and challenge your thinking of what it means to be like Jesus.

    A small, simple book that truly drives home that many human, divine, and wonderful characteristics of Christ This book was an incredible comfort to me in high school, when I was beginning to doubt the existence of God and the value of the Church.


  7. Rebecca Rebecca says:

    A plain language attempt to get at the heart of Christianity While its tagline says it s for skeptics I also think it s good for those of us who have grown up in the church as a challenge and to refocus us.
