Here is our review of Pastor Matt Richard’s book “Will The Real Jesus Please Stand Up“.


“Will The Real Jesus Please Stand Up?” is an eye opening look at the False Christ’s of modern Christianity that points us solidly to the real Jesus of Holy Scripture.

Pastor Richard has dug deep into many years of conversations with people, with believers of various stripes, to bring forth 12 False Christs that are quite common in modern Christianity.

What you will discover in reading this book is that many Christians like, even prefer, a comfortable Christianity, a comfortable Jesus. This happens as they can, and often do, find themselves being uncomfortable with the Jesus of Scripture. They are either taught wrongly about Him or just find themselves adding to, subtracting from or just plain changing Jesus to suit their need. But there is only 1 real Jesus not a plethora of false Jesus’ customized to individuals or groups.

As you read “Will The Real Jesus Please Stand Up?” chances are, like all of us, you will discover that you have created your own Jesus too, to one extent or another. You have created one who works for you and the life you want to live even if it is to a very small degree. He could be one of the 12 Jesus’ presented in this book or some combination of them.

– The Good Teacher
– The Therapist
– The Giver of Bling
– The National Patriot
– The Social Justice Warrior
– The Moral Example
– The New Moses
