As Christian clergy person, I was so transfixed to this story that I sat in my car for more time with the book. Finding Jesus Christ is somehow found by faithfully following Jesus of Nazareth. This picture of Jesus and the violence of his time is a carbon copy of our world, especially (ironically) in the land where Jesus laid the groundwork of the faith I've given my life to. Well worth the money. Any thinking Christian will find this work challenging, but God has used Reza Aslan - as one of the prophets of old - to comment on the central figure of so many and provokes us who call him Lord to step up to the plate and follow him - no matter who gets pissed off.
I dig Palahniuk's other stuff, but the plot was all over the place with the series of supporting charters and their 'short stories.' I wish I had saved my credit.
Don Leslie is one of the best narrator out there. This work is engrossing and disturbing and inspirational all at the same time. Forget everything you know about this incident. Let the story unfold and you'll be taken into a world of teenage angst and parental overprotection.
