Forrest Church, Unitarian minister on THE JEFFERSON BIBLE (Beacon Press).


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.
