    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?

    Jay Parini's readings are always an event but too rare. For the first time, Parini has recorded his best known and most recent poems in an audiobook that welcomes the listener to enter his universe, which revolves around his deep connection to nature and underlines his concerns about the impacts of pollution and climate change. The audiobook follows the pattern of his popular readings, with the poet introducing each poem with context and comments, invariably revealing and often amusing.
