Publisher's Summary

Roberta Grimes spent decades studying nearly 200 years of afterlife evidence and forming a detailed picture of what happens at and after death. She then discovered that 2,000 years ago Jesus told us things about God, reality, death, the afterlife, human nature, and the nature of reality that perfectly match the afterlife evidence in even small details. She outlines many of these correspondences in appendices to her books The Fun of Dying (2010, 2014) and The Fun of Staying in Touch (2014).In Liberating Jesus Roberta offers compelling evidence that the earliest Christians misunderstood the meaning and the message of Jesus. She demonstrates that all the correspondences between the Gospels and the afterlife evidence amount to nothing less than a new revelation from God. And she shows us that once we put aside the magic-thinking notion that the whole Christian Bible must be the inspired word of God just because the earliest Christians said it was, we at last free Jesus to bring to humankind the messages directly from God that long ago were his true life's purpose. His promise remains as fresh today as it was 2,000 years ago, and now it is confirmed by the afterlife evidence: if we will live according to the teachings of Jesus, we can create the Kingdom of God on earth.

Spiritual growth

This great book mentions everything I've been saying all my life about religion and our personal responsibility for our spiritual growth, and the importance of true love, forgiveness and treating others as we would like to be treated. I loved it!

Enlightening, and hence personally liberating

Roberta is a highly intelligent, well-balanced person, with much relevant experience and knowledge. She puts the case very well for how the original message of Jesus had become distorted to reflect the views, wishes, etc, of those that came to write what we know of as the bible. Points out where Jesus' original message can still be heard/seen shining through.
