       The Jesus of 2017 was not the Jesus of the 1920’s who was not the Jesus of the 1700’s.  If you think Jesus is a big deal personally, or think that a lot of people think he is a big deal (and therefore want to learn about this very important person) then you should read this book.  It is a breezy read—though written by an academic—and filled with shocking portraits of how not so Christian our early Americans really were (contrary to popular banter today).  This book will give you a zillion bits of information that you can use to impress, delight, or seriously annoy.  A good book to read before a big holiday.
