“PROVOKETIVE MAGAZINE: What happened with Zondervan Publishing? They decided to cancel your 2-book contract, why?
JIM PALMER: Being Jesus in Nashville was intended to be a social experiment where I tested the idea that authentic Christianity is not Jesus AND Jim but Jesus AS Jim, believing that there was nothing separating me and Jesus, and that I was free to live as he did in every way. When I signed that 2-book deal with Zondervan Publishers I had no idea that the journey ahead would include the deaths of my mother and father, my own two near-death experiences, and a deep deconstruction of my faith and my entire identity as Jim Palmer. Nor did I expect I would become the center of a firestorm of controversy when I submitted my manuscript to Zondervan. My manuscript was rejected on the grounds that it did not “lie within the bounds of biblical, orthodox Christianity.” My 2-book contract was promptly canceled.”
