The Third Jesus: The Christ We Cannot Ignore

The Third Jesus: The Christ We Cannot Ignore Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Who is Jesus Christ? In The Third Jesus, bestselling author and spiritual leader Deepak Chopra provides an answer to this question that is both a challenge to current systems of belief and a fresh perspective on what Jesus can teach us all, regardless of our religious background. There is not one Jesus, Chopra explains, but three.

First, there is the historical Jesus, the man who lived more than two thousand years ago and whose teachings are the foundation of Christian theology and thought. Next there is Jesus the Son of God, who has come to embody an institutional religion with specific dogma, a priesthood, and devout believers. And finally, there is the third Jesus, the cosmic Christ, the spiritual guide whose teaching embraces all humanity, not just the church built in his name. He speaks to the individual who wants to find God as a personal experience.

When we take Jesus literally, we are faced with the impossible. How can we truly “love thy neighbor as thyself”? But when we see the exhortations of Jesus as invitations to join him on a higher spiritual plane, his words suddenly make sense. In this way Jesus can be seen for the universal teacher he truly is-someone whose teachings can embrace and be embraced by all of us.

Review:

"Chopra brings a familiar calm, contemplative speaking style to the audio version of his latest title, which places the life and teachings of Jesus Christ in a broader spiritual context that synthesizes Eastern and Western concepts. Chopra begins his journey by making a case against traditional Christian notions that emphasize the institutional and dogmatic aspects of the Jesus identity. He then ushers in the 'Third Jesus' as a figure who points individuals from all spiritual paths toward an ultimate 'God consciousness.' He devotes a large chunk of the recording to outlining key statements and precepts of Jesus that provide invitations for connecting with deeper truths through meditation. Perhaps because of the abridgment process, some of the most salient points in Chopra's conclusion — especially his outsider's take on why liberal voices within established Christianity invariably find themselves losing the internal debate with more conservative elements — seem a little rushed. Yet audiences with eclectic religious interests will welcome Chopra's perspective as an opportunity for building further dialogue. Simultaneous release with the Harmony hardcover. (Feb.)"
