Did God Kill Jesus?
TonyJones’ book, Did God Kill Jesus, is not a controversial book, even though the title might raise an eyebrow. Jones does an excellent job in making a sticky topic approachable for Christians. The question that many have wondered in their hearts, “Did Jesus really have to die?” Tony Jones is NOT a firebrand but a helpful mentor of the faithful. His excellent review of the history of how and why we think as we do is an excellent preparation for the Lenten and Easter season that is just around the corner. It is a very good summary of atonement theories. I recommend the book. It is a great read for those wanting to dig a little deeper into why our ‘orthodoxy’ is what it is today. Review by Don Corson
