During my last semi-weekly browse, I picked up a copy of Grand Theft Jesus, by Robert McElvaine, subtitled “The Hijacking of Religion in America.”Imagine my surprise at finding that I was. Robert McElvaine was interviewed about his book, [Grand Theft Jesus: The Hijacking of Religion in America] (Crown; Ma ).

"Jesus never wrote a book, but I recognize his handwriting in Grand Theft Jesus. Like Jesus, McElvaine uses lively illustrations and a serious sense of humor to cleanse the temple of exclusive and exploitative religion." -The Reverend Alan Storey,Calvary Methodist Church, South Africa "We're mad as Heaven, and we’re not going to take it anymore!". There is this game called Grand Theft Auto 5 coming out where you play as three criminals. You pull off robberies, blow things up, gunfight in the street, have high speed chases, and do all things straight criminal for whatever reasons the characters in the game do them. I must say, it looks like amazing fun, and REALLY want it.

  The Inverted Jesus (the source of the IJ in the name of this edition of Grand Theft Jesus) praises the rich and urges players to shun the poor. "Just say you believe in Me, and then you can do whatever you want," the beckoning, head-standing Jesus : Robert Mcelvaine. Robert McElvaine is one pissed-off individual. It’s hard to escape the conclusion, all the way from the cover to the very last page of his Grand Theft Jesus: The Hijacking of Religion in the other hand, all the old saws about not judging a book by its cover aside, once you get to the contents, it’s easy to see why he might be–ahem–slightly perturbed.

He is an impersonator of Jesus Christ. If approached, he can be heard speaking various biblical ance(s): Grand Theft Auto V. Grand Theft Jesus (hereafter GTJ) is what would happen if George Carlin were genetically rolled together with John Shelby Spong, and was then sent to perform his comic routines as written by the crew at the Skeptics' Annotated Bible.

It's not an intelligent case for much of anything; it is, at best, a fulsome rant of approximately pages in.
