Comments on the book

Dr. Walter Wink:

"Other scholars have explored this field, and several significant studies have been published, but none of them have the impact this one has. . . . Akers presents nothing less than an entire recasting of Christian origins, as well as a whole new conception of Christianity."

Dr. Walter Wink is Professor of Biblical Interpretation at Auburn Theological Seminary in New York

Elizabeth Farians, Ph. D.:

"Wow! What a book! Written in almost outline form, the book is an easy read . . . The Lost Religion of Jesus is an amazing book."

Elizabeth Farians is a feminist, peace activist, animal rights activist, and author

Dr. Tom Regan:

"Keith Akers has written an important, timely book that sets the historic record straight."

-- Dr. Tom Regan is Professor of Philosophy and Department Head, Department of Philosophy and Religion, North Carolina State University

John Robbins:

"How has the Christian tradition so often lost contact with his message of simple living and nonviolence? In this scholarly historical work, Keith Akers seeks to rediscover the Jesus who said: ‘Nobility is no more than humble service to the Creator and kindness to all creatures.’"

--John Robbins is author of Diet for a New America and Reclaiming Our Health

Victoria Moran:

"From a new and unique vantage point, Akers gives us a life-affirming, faith-affirming look at one of history’s most misunderstood figures."

--Victoria Moran is the author of Shelter for the Spirit and Creating a Charmed Life

Ingrid Newkirk:

"A riveting read. I challenge you to read this book. You will be changed forever."

--Ingrid Newkirk is chairperson of the national animal-rights organization, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals

Lewis Regenstein:

"Whatever your religion, you will find this book to be of compelling interest . . . It could change forever our understanding of the true religion and teachings of Jesus."

--Lewis Regenstein is author of Replenish the Earth (Crossroad, 1991) and director of the Interfaith Council for the Protection of Animals and Nature in Atlanta, Georgia

Dr. Dan Dombrowski:

"His work deserves serious attention. The case for pacifism and, interestingly, the case for vegetarianism on the basis of Jesus’ nonviolence are much stronger than most suspect."

Dr. Dan Dombrowski is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Seattle and author of Christian Pacifism and The Philosophy of Vegetarianism

Dr. Wayne Rollins:

"The Lost Religion of Jesus brings to the stage of current biblical discussion a detailed portrait of a little known moment in the early Church that should not be forgotten."
Wayne Rollins is Adjunct Professor of Scripture, Hartford Seminary 

Howard Lyman:

"I found it to be outstanding. This piece of work is long overdue."

Howard Lyman is an ex-cattle rancher and the author of Mad Cowboy.
