A Bit Like JesusBarry Vendy, via The Good Book Stall
Robin Gill concentrates on stories from the Gospels, mainly parables and healing stories, demonstrating Hypocrisy, Compassion, Care, Faith or Humility. The 36 brief chapters (one for each day of Lent, except Sundays) aim for committed Christians, but also for people who are ‘puzzled by faith’, or adherents of other religions. That explains why each chapter ends with a bit of a Jewish Psalm, and an extract from the Koran – an ecumenical touch to the book. One chapter does appeal for ‘Humility between faiths’. Gill reflects on such matters as the nature of miracles and Jesus’ command for silence. He speaks warmly of a dramatic conversion reported in ‘Alpha News’ but exposes weaknesses in Morris Cerullo’s crusades and the ‘Prosperity Gospel’. He is not afraid to consider such live topics as paedophile priests and assisted suicide.
I recommend this book for Lent (or any other time, for that matter). Surely any Christian will seek to be at least ‘a bit’ Christlike, even recognising that our ‘messy lives’ fall short in many regards.
