Description

From top Jesus expert Marcus Borg, a completely updated and revised version of his vision of Jesus—as charismatic healer, sage, and prophet, a man living in the power of the spirit and dedicated to radical social change.

Fully revised and updated, this is Borg's major book on the historial Jesus. He shows how the Gospel portraits of Jesus, historically seen, make sense. Borg takes into account all the recent developments in historical Jesus scholarship, as well as new theories on who Jesus was and how the Gospels reflect that.

The original version of this book was published well before popular fascination with the historical Jesus. Now this new version takes advantage of all the research that has gone on since the 80s. The revisions establish it as Borg's big but popular book on Jesus.

    Over the years I have read many books seeking the character of Jesus as man on earth. This book in the ability to separate the "pre Easter" Jesus from the resurrected Jesus, has put much of the New Testament into context. It provides a framework in which to make personal decisions about the purpose behind Jesus message, and how to seek the kingdom of God.
