About the Book

In this exciting and thought-provoking work, top Bible expert Marcus J. Borg portrays Jesus as a charismatic healer, sage, and prophet who is still an inspiring figure today. Returning to the topic of his first book, Jesus: A New Vision, Borg introduces us to a Jesus we have never met before; a revolutionary figure who possesses a more exciting moral vision than that of traditional Christianity.

According to Jesus, a movement in the church today is catching up with where scholarship has brought us in understanding Christian origins. Borg argues that once the church discards the archaic doctrines it currently embraces, Christians will be able to appreciate Jesus in a whole new way. Jesus is another remarkable work of scholarship from Marcus Borg.

Marcus J. Borg, author of the bestseller Heart of Christianity, 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, and 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.

“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 The Human Being
