Imaginary Jesus is a hilarious, fast-paced, not-quite-true story that's unlike anything you've ever read before. When Matt Mikalatos realizes that his longtime buddy in the robe and sandals isn't the real Jesus at all, but an imaginary one, he embarks on a mission to find the real thing. On his wild ride through time, space, and Portland, Oregon, he encounters hundreds of other Imaginary Jesuses determined to stand in his way (like Legalistic Jesus, Perpetually Angry Jesus, and Magic 8 Ball Jesus). But Matt won't stop until he finds the real Jesus-and finally gets an answer to the question that's haunted him for years. Be warned: Imaginary Jesus may bring you face-to-face with an imposter in your own life.

Well balanced tale of humor with spirituality.
This book starts off silly, exploring misconceptions of the Christ through imaginary versions of him, then it gets sillier. Like Robin Williams, there's a serious undertone of Matt's spiritual journey for answers to touch questions. The book finished well, leaving me in tears. I can empathize with Matt's grief. I felt like I was grieving right along with Jesus. Well written and well dictated, it's an excellent book.

It's like Portlandia and the Bible got married and had a baby, and this was the baby.

Compelling and intriguing!
Mikalatos shines a light on the dilemma many Christians confront: do we worship the Jesus of the Gospel or the Jesus with whom we are comfortable? Is the Jesus we are in relationship the one who told Peter to follow him or one that willingly "follows" us? These important questions are explored in a very unique fashion with humor and through a lens that may bring clarity to your life, it did to me. If I could assign this book to friends and family, I would! But, I can't! So, I invite them and you to journey with Matt and Peter in search of the "real" Jesus.
