RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 71223443 LA English T1 Jesus : uncovering the life, teachings, and relevance of a religious revolutionary A1 Borg, Marcus J., PB HarperSanFrancisco PP [San Francisco] YR 2006 SN 0060594454 9780060594459 AB Almost two thousand years after his death, Jesus continues to be front-page news in the United States. Yet American Christians are deeply divided about what it means to follow him. Bible scholar Borg takes us on a journey to discover who Jesus was, what he taught, and why he still matters today. Borg argues that how we see Jesus affects how we see Christianity and reveals a new way of seeing--a new perspective that can overcome the differences between the literalists and progressives, a path that emphasizes following "the way" of Jesus, the original name of the Jesus movement. Jesus remains the decisive revelation of God, but we now encounter him as both a reality and a role model centered in God, focused on both personal and political transformation, emphasizing practices rather than beliefs, and exemplifying a faith characterized by deep commitment and gentle certitude.--From publisher description.
