My Life as a Bush…and my heart for imitating Jesus by John Morgan was a most inspirational and entertaining book. I have to admit that I had never heard of John Morgan. I like the way the book was organized with each chapter relating a professional experience of John’s as he impersonated President George W. Bush. Each chapter also included John’s testimony of his life as an imitator of Jesus as he follows Jesus in his daily walk as a Christian. John told how the principles that he uses to impersonate the President are Biblical commandments that can help Christians become authentic imitators of Jesus As much as John Morgan enjoys and has fun impersonating the President, in his personal and private life, he works hard to be more like Jesus. Each chapter begins with a Bible verse and ends with questions for reflection that are good for personal study or to use in a small study group. The most important point of the book is that of living a life that makes us more and more like Jesus but not impersonating Jesus.
I thought it was quite interesting and funny how John got started as an impersonator. He was awakened quite a while after midnight from a sound sleep and told by his wife, “I’ve found your new career—impersonating the president.” After he did some research and learned how profitable it was to be an impersonator, he decided that it was worth a try. John spent months studying the President to be able to imitate facial expressions, mannerisms, hand gestures, walk, hair style, speech patterns, and any other facet of the President’s life that made the impersonation more real.
I would recommend this book to everyone, Christians and non Christians alike.
I received this book free from Book Club Network in exchange for an honest review.
