Forrest Church, Unitarian minister on THE JEFFERSON BIBLE (Beacon Press).08/08/01
Thomas Jefferson pared down the bible, excluding the Old Testament, letters from apostles and any mention of miracles. Jefferson wanted to distill the Bible to its essence: the life of Jesus and his ethical philosophy. The result was a slim book, just 46 pages. Church, who is a minister in NYC wrote the introduction to this latest edition of THE JEFFESON BIBLE.
