    Many of My Thoughts Were Validated Here

    The author of this non-fiction book about Jesus, His mission, and His teaching has done his homework. I found this book to be very educational regarding what we know about the specifics of what Jesus taught and how he taught it. Some of the ideas are controversial, and some are traditional. Anyone interested in this topic (and anyone that calls him/herself a Christian should be) will learn a great deal by reading this, and perhaps have their minds opened to alternative ways of seeing and thinking about the most important subject there is. It can sometimes be a bit academic and require more focus and attention than casual reading material, but is more than worth a little additional effort. This book will help you.

    Excellent historical perspective

    Marcus Borg does an excellent job of giving the reader a sense of the political and economic landscape during the life of Jesus. This book makes me think without being pedantic or pushing a particular point of view.

    Great insights into Life of Jesus

    I had never read this author's works, but am now motivated to read more of his writings. I had never taken an Introduction to New Testament course in college and this book is a great beginning. I love his introduction to the Gospels and his looking at the Life of Jesus from the perspective of the modern day Christian. Great read!

    Amazing Insight

    Dr. Borg's brilliance illuminates the message of Jesus in a way that helps us to appreciate Jesus as a man of wisdom as well as a man of love. In particular, the recognition of Jesus' Father as a metaphorical reference to God - the ultimate authority in a patriarchal authoritarian culture - proved helpful to me in a move past parent-complexed religion.
