9780061800351: Jesus: A Revolutionary Biography

John Dominic Crossan is widely regarded as the leading authority on the words and life of Jesus Christ. His classic national bestseller, Jesus, is a powerful and controversial portrait of a courageous revolutionary, philosopher, and political agitator who challenged the prevailing rules of the social order. Bold, moving, and provocative, a book that will affect every Christian reader deeply and profoundly, Jesus is a remarkable work that presents a very different view of a saviour and king of peace who proclaimed - in thought and action - that all may participate in the rule of God.

Product Description:

Paperback. Pub Date: October 2009 Pages: 256 in Publisher: HarperOne of The controversial bestselling account of what we can not know about the life of Jesus.

Review:

"Jesus is a magisterial distillation of Crossan's lifelong work on the gospels and Jesus. It deserves careful and extended consideration by everyone seriously interested in the enigmatic sage from Galilee. With his work on Jesus, Crossan joins the ranks of the truly great biblical scholars of the twentieth century. His 'revolutionary biography' is the biography of a revolutionary: the book and its subject are rebels in the cause of truth."-- Robert W. Funk, editor of "The Five Gospels: The Search for the Authentic Words of Jesus" and cofounder of the Jesus Seminar"Crossan paints his Jesus with great warmth and power. He achieves a portrait that both takes in the contemporary background yet accounts for Jesus' distinctiveness...This Jesus is a Jewish peasant, with a direct sense of God's immediacy, who shatters all social restraints." -- "New York Times Book Review""This is an extremely interesting, erudite, informative, must-read for anyone interested in the New Testament...Read it." -- "National Catholic Reporter"
