A Revolutionary BiographyBook - 1994
Cuts through the arcane research of biblical scholarship to present an historical description of the life of Jesus, depicting him as a social revolutionary who preached a message of radical egalitarianism
“Crossan paints his Jesus with great warmth and power.”
—New York Times Book Review
John Dominic Crossan is widely regarded as the leading authority on the words and life of Jesus Christ. His classic national bestseller, Jesus, is a powerful and controversial portrait of a courageous revolutionary, philosopher, and political agitator who challenged the prevailing rules of the social order. Bold, moving, and provocative, a book that will affect every Christian reader deeply and profoundly, Jesus is a remarkable work that presents a very different view of a savior and king of peace who proclaimed—in thought and action—that all may participate in the rule of God.
