I purchased this because the picture of Waldo is just like my little dog.
This is a fantastic book. It is endearing and exciting, bring a new perspective to the last days of Jesus
It is filled with direct biblical quotes. very good for lent meditation.
Suitable for reading to children as well.
I am not sure that very conservative people would agree wit the ending, but all dog lovers would.
I love it
What if Jesus Had a Dog?
A dog that trotted along beside Him from Capernaum to Calvary? A dog that understood far more than any of the disciples? A dog that would protect Him with his life if he felt it was necessary? What difference would that have made in the lives of Jesus and the disciples? Those questions are answered in Waldo Maccabees, In the Footsteps of Christ. Along the way, the book’s firm foundation of solid research puts old familiar stories in their proper historical and sociological perspective, giving them a new and deeper meaning than ever before.
About the Author
Tom Jones was born in Akron, Ohio and currently lives in New Braunfels, Texas, with his wife, Steffanie. Following his graduation at Kent State University he worked as a nationally award-winning copywriter within the advertising industry in San Antonio, Texas for twenty years. Ten of these years were at his own firm, Flying Terrier Creative Company-which was named after a stray dog with a broken tail that he adopted off the street.That dog's name was Waldo, who also inspired this book. He is also the author of On A Burning Deck, The Road to Akron and On A Burning Deck, Return to Akron. Based on over 50 hours of unpublished oral histories, it offers the first complete portrait of one family's origins in rural Kentucky over a century ago, their migration to Akron, Ohio in 1917 and work in the rubber industry. Meticulously fact-checked and referenced for accuracy, thoroughly annotated for historical perspective, and supplemented by contemporary newspaper accounts, long forgotten reports and photographs, this contextual oral history offers the only first-hand account of industrial Ohio's boom years that made Akron "The Rubber Capital of the World."
