Review:

"In this informed and cogent primer on Jesus of Nazareth, Boteach, rabbi and author of the international bestseller Kosher Sex, takes a brave stab at re-evaluating Jesus through an intensive look at the New Testament and historical documents. In what is sure to be controversial, Boteach asserts that contradictions in the New Testament regarding who bears responsibility for Jesus' crucifixion, Jesus' feelings toward the Jews as well as issues like Jesus' divinity and the question of Judas' existence, prove that editors of early texts chose to distort that Jesus was, in fact, a beloved member of the Jewish community who rebelled against Roman brutality, not Jewish law. Boteach reiterates that although he does not believe in Jesus as Messiah, he hopes that a new look at Jesus as a man who lived and died as an observant Jew will help eliminate anti-Semitism, establish good will between the faiths and 'strengthen Judeo-Christian values.' This well-researched analysis will certainly reopen intrafaith and interfaith dialogue." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
