Product description

Review

"Borg provides an account of contemporary Jesus scholarship-told in simply language for lay readers-and of his personal struggle to find authentic, mature faith. Highly recommended."--Library Journal

"In this small but eloquent and learned book, Borg... directs his readers, especially those who have found no meaningful image of Jesus, away from confessed doctrines about Jesus (what the gospels and the churches say about Him) and toward a relationship with the Spirit of God."--Publishers Weekly

"A book of rare excellence."--L. William Countryman, The Church Divinity School of the Pacific

"Borg has done a great service for all of us in drawing upon contemporary research to present a fresh and imaginative picture of Jesus that has profound implications for contemporary faith."--Praying

"For many contemporary Christians, Biblical scholarship is seen as the enemy of faith. In a personal and highly readable account, Marcus Borg shows how Christians can explore contemporary scholarship as a way toward a far more dynamic and meaningful faith."--Rosemary Radford Ruether, author of Gaia and God

"It is impossible to read this beautifully written book and remain unenlightened by the results of Jesus research, or untouched by the power of Jesus' way."--Elizabeth A. Johnson, author of She Who Is

"Just the sort of book on Jesus that we really need--a classy wedding of first-rate biblical research and solid spirituality in beautiful, clear English that makes it a pleasure to read."--Sandra M. Schneiders, Graduate Theological Union, author of The Relevatory Text --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
