Five Times More Jesus: Why Christians Should Decanonize the Old Testament

Five Times More Jesus: Why Christians Should Decanonize the Old Testament - Jim Adam What is the central idea discussed in the book? The book makes a feeble attempt at arguing that the Old Testament chapters in the bible are not necessary. The author deconstructs each chapter but only highlights the negative points so readers think that this is all the Old Testament is about.

Do the issues affect your life? I am a practicing Christian so yes, the content of this book affects my life. I was expecting an objective argument but a lot of his thoughts are centered on the negative and comes across as confusing because he himself appears uncertain about what he is writing about.

What evidence does the author use to support the book's ideas? He shares his conversations with other people and their thoughts on the Old Testament. While I can respect the intent for which this book was written with, I cannot respect it's presentations. For a new believer or an old one, this book reflects the writings of someone who is confused about Christianity.

Disclosure - As a Quality Reads Book Club member, I received a free copy of this book from the author via Orangeberry Book Tours in exchange for my honest review.
