Jesus: Uncovering the Life, Teachings, and Relevance of a Religious Revolutionary (Paperback)
Rediscovering the Original "Way" of Jesus the Christ
Leading Bible scholar Marcus Borg takes us on an incredible journey to discover who Jesus was, what he taught, and why he still matters today. In the definitive book of his career, Borg argues that how we see Jesus affects how we see Christianity and reveals a new way of seeing—a new perspective that can overcome the differences between the literalists and progressives, a path that emphasizes following "the way" of Jesus, the original name of the Jesus movement.
