Cultural Jesus

I would highly recommend Francis Chan's book "Erasing Hell: What God Said about Eternity, and the Things We've Made Up" to you. It's a primarily a rebuttal to Rob Bell's "Love Wins". It's a quick and good read. It's also on Kindle.

In he says, "Deep down, we all have a tendency to recreate Jesus in our own image. Before we know it, we have an American Jesus, a Western Jesus, a postmodern Jesus, a hippie Jesus, or a capitalistic or socialistic Jesus. Deep down in the heart of every person is a hidden desire to reinterpret Jesus in light of our own culture, political bent, or favorite theological belief." - Francis Chan (Kindle Locations 560-562).
