Item description for God In Sandals by Margaret Montreuil...
Overview God in Sandals: When Jesus Walked Among Us is an inspirational novel about the most famous and influential person in history. Because Jesus called himself "the Son of Man," and "the Son of God," people couldn't help but wonder what he meant. In fact, people still wonder about him today. This story plunges headlong into that amazing mystery of who Jesus was and is. What did God incarnate experience and feel when he became one of us? Why did people so strongly love or hate him? And why do people still seek to know him today? This is not a typical novel. It is an intimate biography that reads much like a devotional book of meditations but in the style of creative storytelling. While delving into the nature and wonder of the human side of Jesus, God in Sandals brings its readers on an imaginative journey through the biblical narratives of his life. By sharing in the experiences of those who knew him, we, too, can see and hear him and better understand the meaning of his coming.

No wonder Bush puts his faith in Jesus Oct 22, 2004
Da Vinci Code? Margaret Montreuil's Jesus is interesting enough without shocking revelations.
Like Anita Diamant's The Red Tent, this book takes a fresh, original approach, focusing not just on Jesus' ministry and miracles, but on his drama as a human being with his own disappointments and fears, his own joys and sorrows, and his awesome destiny that he surrenders to: to suffer, be crucified,, and be reborn to save mankind from sin.
Hollywood secularists, repent: The Jewish religious leaders, channeling Jim Bakker, as well as the Reverend Fred Phelps who erected a monument against murdered Matthew Shepard (who Montreuil's loving, fiery Jesus would not have damned) in Wyoming, condemned Jesus because of their own arrogance. Oh wait, that sounds more like the Hollywood secularists trying to block Mel Gibson's "Passion." In the Jewish leaders' denial of Jesus we see grim specters of the ACLU and the liberal left banning Nativity scenes, prayer at public events, and at high school football games. Has Bill O'Reilly read Montreuil's book? Someone send him a copy as a belated Christmas gift. Then, give yourself the experience of knowing the Jesus that Montreuil evokes in her love letter.
Stepping into the pages of the Gospels Sep 26, 2003
God in Sandals is a retelling of the life of Christ with the sensory details of someone who has made pilgrimages to the Holy Land. Margaret shines new understanding on well known stories. I could smell the Sea of Galilee and feel the breeze on my face and listen at Jesus' feet. I appreciate her careful research, as she helped me look at familiar scenes from new angles. Her companion devotional book, God With Us, is my favorite, with suggestions for journaling, prayer, and meditation, based on key sections of the Gospels.
God in Sandals is a very good, lovingly written book Sep 11, 2003
"God in Sandals" is written to go right along side the devotional (God with Us) and adds beautiful description of the people and places to the readers own thoughts. The book is written to give the reader more then just intellectual knowledge of the gospels, but to help you right into the time and place of the gospels. Through these wonderful descriptions of the people and places the reader can do more then just analyze the gospel, you can have a chance to be there through the pages of the book.
