My Imaginary Jesus

From Keith: I don't know what I was expecting when I started the book My Imaginary Jesus by Matt Mikalatos, but it definitely wasn't what I ended up reading. Part fiction, part Christian Living, part Allegory, and even part Theology. The book is a story of one man's quest to find the real Jesus. Matt has a picture of Jesus in his mind. At first, he seems legit. But he soon discovers that the Jesus of his imagination is not the real Jesus of the Bible. So Matt goes on a quest (along with other characters) to find the real Jesus. They come across many other fake Imaginary Jesuses (what's the plural of Jesus? Jesi?); ones that we can all relate to believing in at one time or another. Legalist Jesus, New Age Jesus, Eight Ball Jesus, Masculine Jesus and numerous others. But none of them are real. None of them are true.    This book was fascinating. It was hilarious (I laughed out loud on many occasions), and at the same time, it is heartwarming
