Publisher's Summary

In Jesus, Jay Parini turns the powerful narrative skill he’s wielded over the course of a four-decade career to a figure who has dominated our collective imagination and cultural iconography for over 20 centuries.

The main trend of modern theology has hinged on the notion of "demythologizing" Jesus. Parini’s book seeks to re-mythologize him, considering the story in all its mythical radiance, taking Jesus as the human face of God. It asks: What’s so moving about Jesus’s story that millions of people over two millennia have considered it a paradigm for living? Far from dogmatic, Parini looks at the many ways in which Jesus has been viewed and dramatizes the transformation from Jesus to Christ, man to myth, and obscure Jewish carpenter to someone who pointed a finger toward God and said with conviction: This is the way. Follow me.

    "Wonderful and enlightening"

    A great book that helped me better understand Christ and His message. It also helped strip away and reveal various interpretations. I loved it.

    Story
    "Not a Christian book"

    Intellectual discourse based on personal opinion without the enlightenment of the Holy Spirit. Salvation comes from Jesus alone who is God.
