Who is Jesus, really, and what's he up to these days? Becky Garrison invites you to laugh and ponder in her self-proclaimed "travelogue of a religious satirist's search for the risen Christ." These days, it seems, Jesus doesn't always show up where we expect to find him.
In a series of provocatively titled essay-like chapters, Garrison offers snapshots that take you from her evangelical press trip to the Promised Land in January, 2007, to the Presidential Promised Land, a.k.a. the 2008 elections. You will be treated to thoughtful, well-placed jabs at the shallow, self-reflective, self-righteous finger-pointing of those modern Christians who bend Heaven and theology to make Jesus into someone just like them. Along the way, Garrison captures glimpses of God as she spots both ordinary radicals operating below the spiritual radar and those extraordinary individuals who actually walk the walk.
At the crux of this sojourn is thoughtful and articulate consideration of how we "lost" Jesus in the first place, and why we might want to stand face to face with him if we're going to truly model ourselves after him. Garrison suggests that real spiritual discernment involves looking Jesus up rather than serving him up.
