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."

Review:

'In every generation there is a handful of writers of whom it can be said, 'Read everything they write.' Marcus Borg is one of these today.' --Walter Wink, author of Engaging the Powers

'For over twenty years Marcus Borg has been a key figure in scholarly debates over how to reconstruct the life and aims of the historical Jesus. This new major book provides in remarkably accessible form the latest results of his own thinking about the challenge that Jesus originally presented and its relevance today. It is essential reading for all who take this subject seriously.' --Ronald A. Piper, Vice-Principal and Professor of Christian Origins, University of St Andrews
