Jesus: A New Vision

Jesus: A New Vision Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

A thoughtful, well-researched historical portrait of Jesus as charismatic, healer, sage, and prophet-- as spiritual, deeply political, and fully consistent with the gospel presentation.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 205-207) and indexes.

About the Author

Marcus J. Borg is Hundere Distinguished Professor of Religion and Culture at Oregon State University and author of the bestselling Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time, Reading the Bible Again for the First Time, The God We Never Knew, and coauthor of Jesus: A New Vision with N. T. Wright. He was an active member of the Jesus Seminar when it focused on the historical Jesus and he has been chair of the Historical Jesus section of the Society of Biblical Literature. Borg is in great demand as a speaker throughout the United States and Canada, and he increasingly focuses on the topic of this book — how to be a true Christian in the contemporary world — since it is of vital concern to those who hear him speak and read his books.
