Reviews - What do customers think about Jesus the Radical: A Poetic Reflection On The Gospel of Mark, Volume One (Poetic Reflections on the Bible)?
Powerful Book May 8, 2006
This is a powerful book on Jesus Christ. I was impressed by the boldness in this book. There are not too many Christian clergy today who will stand up and read the difficult passages in the Gospels and preach them because of fear of offending people. This book has no such fear. This book is faithful to the Biblical account in the Bible and should be read by all who love Christ Jesus our God and Savior.
Good Commentary Jul 10, 2005
What I like about Mr. Kim's poetic reflections on the Bible is that he combines a pesonal reflection with academically based commentary. In this way, Mr. Kim makes his commentary-poems come alive. I found that they are great for preaching and quiet-time reflection.
Another appalling Christian Kim poetry book! Jun 4, 2005
'Jesus the Radical' really is utter rot. It is by far the worst poetry book I've ever read.
The poems just ramble on like the dreary drone of a lecturer in the most boring subject imaginable i.e. Tax law. I almost fell asleep after reading about five poems. The content was complete and utter drivel; yet again Kim focuses on the idea that Christians must kill Jews. Kim seems to be completely obsessed with the Jews.
The book was full of errors and inconsistencies. I wonder if Kim even bothered to edit the book. This book should be avoided; it really is drivel of the worst sort.
Terrible Mar 16, 2005
Another example of Kim's terrible poetry! The poems are frustrating to read and distort the Bible. I find it hard to believe that Kim persists in writing poetry; he really doesn't have a clue about what makes a good poem. These poems are likely to offend many Christians as they inaccurately portray Jesus Christ in a bad light and justify the hatred felt by certain detractors towards our lord 2,000 years ago.
These poems are absolute drivel and should be avoided at all costs!
Just What We Need Today! Jan 15, 2005
I was deeply touched by this book of poems. I like the idea of a Bible commentary being in the form of a poetry book. Poetry can capture things that prose can't, in my opinion. But more than the form of the commentary, I like H. C. Kim's bold ways in expounding the truth of the Gospel of Mark. Many Christian clergy today are scared to expound the Truth. It's clear that H. C. Kim isn't. More power to him for sticking his neck out for the truth of the Bible. We need more people like him!
