Product Description

The authors' address their work to three groups of people. "First, we hope that those who would not call themselves Christians will find the conversation interesting and refreshing....Second, we hope to shift logjammed debates into more fruitful possibilities. Much current writing about Jesus falls into rather sterile either-or distinctions....we hope that this book will serve as a bridge between many other groups of Christians....Third, we hope to open up more specifically the perennially important question of how different visions of Jesus relate to different visions of the Christian life. Many who are deeply concerned with issues of justice, spirituality, pastoral care, and other matters within the churches do not always relate these issues to the question of Jesus. We propose some ways in which this might be done." No small feat, but if any are equipped to tackle this momentous task, it is outstanding scholars such as Wright and Borg.

Publisher's Description

Was Jesus born of a virgin? Did he know he was the Messiah? Was he bodily resurrected from the dead? Did he intentionally die to redeem humankind? Was Jesus God? Two leading Jesus scholars with widely divergent views go right to the heart of these questions and others, presenting the opposing visions of Jesus that shape our faith today.

    Have enjoyed reading the opinions of both authors - seeing where they agree and disagree. I must admit I find Wright a bit harder to understand - some of his sentence structure is lengthy and convoluted requiring rereading for comprehension. Sometimes I wish Wright would just clearly state his opinion rather than seeming to hide it in "the facts". All in all, both authors present much food for thought. I would recommend the book. In my opinion, it was well worth the money.

    I really enjoyed the repartee between these two esteemed theologians. I learned more from the academic views of N.T. Wright and I found Marcus Borg's thesis rather redundant throughout. I highly recommend this book for all interested christians who are seeking more of a background of our faith and for non believers an interesting exchange of ideas.
