What does your Jesus look like? Does He end up looking a lot like you, with the same likes and dislikes, types of friends, or social causes?
Matt Mikalatos realized that the Jesus in his life looked a lot like himself, and very little like the Jesus of the Bible. In My Imaginary Jesus, Mikalatos explores the ways in which we have made Jesus in our image. Through personal stories and a bit of imagination, My Imaginary Jesus helps strip away the cultural trappings we've placed around Christ to reveal a truer, more brilliant portrait of the Savior by exploring what He isn't.
Matt Mikalatos liked Jesus a lot. In fact, he couldnt believe how much they had in common. They shared the same likes, dislikes, beliefs, and opinions. (Though Jesus did have better hair.) So imagine Matts astonishment when he finds out that the guy he knows as Jesus . . . isnt. Hes an Imaginary Jesus: a comfortable, convenient imitation Matt has created in his own image. The real Jesus is still out there somewhere . . . and Matt is determined to find him.
In this hilarious, fast-paced, sort-of-true story hailed as Monty Python meets C. S. Lewis, Matt embarks on an incredible chase to find the real Jesus and ask him the one question that his Imaginary Jesus has never been able to answer. Its a wild spiritual adventure like nothing youve ever read before . . . and it might bring you face-to-face with an imposter in your own life. This new edition now contains a discussion guide, an interview with the author, and other bonus features! (Previously published as Imaginary Jesus.)
