Publisher's Summary

Come to know Jesus as you have never known him before: as a revolutionary prophet with an exciting new moral vision.
Top biblical scholar Marcus J. Borg, after a lifetime of work and study, presents a historically accurate Jesus unlike any we have previously seen. This Christ is a charismatic sage and healer who courageously and surprisingly confronts the societal crises of his day, a man living in the power of the spirit and dedicated to radical social change. This fresh and innovative vision of Jesus will inspire and guide those who have moved beyond traditional church teaching about the Son of God and who are willing to see our savior in a whole new light.

great for esoteric students

I am an esoteric Christian and I spend a lot of my time reading books related to that realm. This book is written by a mainstream Jesus scholar, so I thought it would be a good opportunity to check in with the mainstream, in order to make sure I hadn't gone off the deep end. What I found in this book was more than I could have hoped for. The first few chapters were a little slow for me because they are dedicated to gradually introducing the radical ideas of the later chapters. The author is very gentle with those who may be reading from a fundamentalist POV. However, by the end we have firmly established that Jesus was mystic and revolutionary, the two critical aspects of the Real Jesus that have only been known to those in more esoteric traditions. Read masterfully.
