Robot Jesus and Three Other Jesuses You Never Knew
by Kyle R. Beshears
3 out of 5 stars
This book examines the person of Jesus and what various cults and religions around the world believe about Him. Some believe that Jesus is just another angel or a human prophet. The author presents the true Jesus, and debunks the false beliefs that Jesus is not truly God.
The chapters are designed to equip the reader with knowledge about what different cults believe and how to talk with people and answer their questions about the true nature of the Trinity and the person of Jesus Christ.

I think the premise of this book is really good. The execution just wasn’t quite what I was looking for. As far as I could tell, the theology in this book is sound and correct and rooted in canonical Bible Scripture.

However, some of the arguments weren’t particularly strong or as logical as they could have been. I felt like the author was taking some leaps to connect certain ideas that didn’t seem to have that strong of a connection, and then was grasping at straws to prove the point without much solid evidence. I was looking for more logic and fewer emotional appeals.

Maybe I’m just being too picky, but I also felt like the author spent too long explaining details that are not that important to the general argument, and exploring rabbit trails that didn’t lead anywhere meaningful. The writing could have been condensed.
