    I got this book because Peterson wrote it and THE MESSAGE. At first, I thought I had the wrong Peterson because he wasn't using down-to-earth language, but I persevered. After I completed the introduction and several of the early chapters, I finally realized his point: Jesus was truly human and He dealt with truly human issues/conditions -- prejudice, temptation, honor and ill repute. He wasn't aloof, and He modeled behavior that was not phony. He forgave and showed us how to forgive so that we could be happy.

    Peterson, like Jesus, began with language that was not easily understood by the person on the street. However, looking back and remembering, the person on the street had an ah-hah moment. If this book was for a pastoral or theology student, the ah-hah moment could occur while applying the principles. For the rest of us, that moment will not come until we begin to realize how unaloof Jesus was -- later in the book. It was all a question of language, Peterson's language.
