I received a new book from DoubleDay yesterday.  I'm supposed to review it--I don't think it's coming out until next week or so.  Anyway, there are no wishers yet, so if you are interested, now would be the time to jump on it.  The books is

The Greatest Words Ever Spoken:  Everything Jesus Said About You, Your Life, and Everything Else.  ISBN 9871400074624

Although I don't label myself a Christian, I have always been interested in the actual words of Jesus Christ.  I plan on writing an inbiased, informative review ;0)

How did you come across the opportunity to receive new books ahead of time to review?

That does sound really interesting Tammy. I'll have to look into this book myself. Let me know how it is after you've read some! =)

Is this book somehow different from those old New Testaments in which the "words" of Jesus were printed inred ink?

And how does this new book differ from The Jefferson Bible?

Bonnie, I don't know how it is different yet...but I'll comment on that.  I have no idea what the Jefferson Bible contains.

I got this book as part of the LibraryThing Early Reviewer program, but there are lots of publishers and websites that will send you books to review.  Most the time the books are advance released copies (ARC), but this one is the actual book.
