My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Stick to your red letter bible. The Jefferson Bible is very much a cut and paste of bits of the Holy Bible. As it is primarily about Jesus' message rather than his miracles or resurrection, these bits don't feature in this book. However, whilst reading it is good to see it more as if reading the bits on Jesus' ethics as lit up by a highlighter pen. It is interesting to read it all in one book, though it does lose some flow to it. There is also a few typos in the book, almost like it was a rushed piece of work. None the less nothing can take away from the words of Jesus that remain challenging, sometimes hard to understand and always in some measure a blessing.
