In the same spirit as his previous book, Big Jesus, Watson takes us on a journey through the Gospel of Luke with a touch of humor and a wheelbarrow full of insights and information. Watson believes nothing is more pretentiously self-pious than to write something and call it a ""devotional"" unless one has already been canonized as a saint. An Undevotional is not a spoon-fed offering of theological niceties, but rather a head-spinning array of possibilities into the mind and ministry of Jesus of Nazareth with contemporary applications. At times irreverent, at all times interesting, this book is un-indispensable for Jesus devotees and un-devotees alike. ""As a priest, ordained after nine long years in Roman Catholic seminaries, I am somewhat allergic to devotional writings. They bring to mind hair shirts and self flagellation, or overly sentimental 'oh's and ah's.' If you are a pure-like-the-first-snow nun, or anointed-to-worship-in-tongues born again Christian, you may find this undevotional not only unsatisfactory, but also unholy. However, if you happen to be one of those who try to make sense of the ancient story of Jesus in this very postmodern world, Jimmy Watson's book might just be the straw you need to clutch at. Unconventional, but easily understandable, this undevotional makes it possible to be a sane believer once again."" --Marek Bożek. Pastor of St. Stanislaus Polish Catholic Church in St. Louis Jimmy R. Watson is the senior pastor at Immanuel United Church of Christ in Ferguson, Missouri. He has served congregations in Texas, Missouri, Indiana, and Kentucky.
