The Earliest Christian Tradition and Its Interpreters
For its carefulness in respect of what an historian may or may not legitimately claim, as well as for its combination of vigour and rigour, this book is a delight. Very hard to put down! You may not agree with all his interpretations of motifs and texts, but you certainly cannot ignore them, since they are invariably backed by extensive knowledge of historical and social, textual and bibliographic data, and they challenge any reader to look afresh at the evidence, and often from a new angle.
Here he dispels the myth of a 'no quest for Jesus' between and , presses the implications of Jesus having said different things to different people, challenges the refusal of the very idea that Jesus could have believed in hell and the polarisation of the debate about Jesus' attitude to the law, and in an almost book length treatment of Jesus' resurrection dispels any easy assumption that the debate on Jesus' resurrection can be reduced to a sequence of simple either-ors.
And all this with some fascinating excursions into the byways and cul-de-sacs of the quest and an engagingly fresh and self-critical honesty. Dunn, Blurb from reviewer.
Resurrecting Jesus (Audiobook) by Adyashanti | orasugoziz.tk
In dialog with an amazing number of post-enlightenment authors and an unusually large array of patristic works, Allison exhibits a striking degree of critical candor and historical humility in pursuing his historical and exegetical inquiries, providing occasional autobiographical glimpses of his own intellectual struggles and faith commitment.
Since excellent books are rare, I would counsel you to go, sell all that thou hast, and buy this one! Aune, Blurb from reviewer. You can unsubscribe from newsletters at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link in any newsletter.
“Resurrecting Jesus: Embodying the Spirit of a Revolutionary Mystic” by Adyashanti
Visit the Australia site Continue on UK site. Jesus Christ is the literal Son of some Omnipotent being who watches over everyone named God. This interpretation stuck in my mind for a while, but eventually, the contractions starting piling.
The list goes on and on. Of course the religious people I interacted with always had ready-made answers. But they just never satisfied me.
'Resurrecting Jesus: Embodying the Spirit of a Revolutionary Mystic' By Adyashanti (EXCERPT)
I came to more or less the same conclusion Christopher Hitches came to: the Bible was a man-made product of a primitive, ignorant, barbaric time in human history. Resurrecting Jesus by Adyashanti really is a beautiful interpretation of the Jesus story from a place not entrenched in belief and dogma.
This book has shifted the way I see the Jesus story thanks to the wisdom of a spiritual master.

To Adyashanti, a man coming from the tradition of Zen Buddhism, the Jesus story represents a wonderful myth about the spiritual journey itself. He is not interested in whether or not the story is factually correct, only that we can learn from it.
