The title … My life as a Bush and my heart for imitating Jesus … says it all.

Imitation happens automatically, but it also happens by choice.

John Morgan was called to become an impersonator of George W. Bush and a very successful one as well.  His wit, charm and most of all his passion for Jesus Christ, His Lord and Saviour is obvious throughout My life as a Bush and my heart for imitating Jesus.

It is interesting to read about the life of John Morgan, how he became the impersonator of Georg W. Bush and the different incidents along the way of his career. One of the things that stood out for me, is, that although he spent hours and hours perfecting his talent of impersonating someone, he did not lose his own identity, but gained more and more of it through his relationship with Jesus Christ.

Over the years, I’ve learned that Jesus only asks me to do what is the very best thing for me to do. Everything else is a lie—and every day is a quest to remember this.

Each chapter begins with a relevant Bible verse and ends with Questions of reflection, which allows the reader to look at our own lives and the impact Christ has on us. I love the way he combines, the relaying of incidents when he was impersonating George W. Bush, with relevant and appropriate Biblical principles. The message is clear, we should not pretend to impersonate Jesus Christ, but to become daily more and more like Jesus Christ.

People often look at me and my outrageous life and say, “Gee, I wish I looked like somebody famous.” I have great news for you. If you are a believer in Christ, you do! You have been recreated in the image of God’s Son and have His indwelling presence living through you.

To me, this is the message that John Morgan is portraying in My life as a Bush and my heart for imitating Jesus – There is nobody more famous than Jesus Christ, our Saviour. We should all imitate Him.

I recommend My life as a Bush and my heart for imitating Jesus. The spiritual parallels are refreshing and stir the reader to be imitators of the Jesus Christ.

Creation House has provided me with the book, for free, through The Book Club Network as part of their review bloggers program in exchange for this honest review.

    Hi Retha, It does indeed appear to be a good read. I admired President Bush for his stance while presiding over this nation. Morgan was so good at his craft. I got to see him and Bush together, and boy, what a riot that was.

    You are so right-on, where you comment that we should not impersonate Jesus, but be more like Him. Great read! Blessings.
