Rescuing Jesus from the Christians

  • By Clayton Sullivan
Orthodox Christianity has put Jesus in a dogmatic straitjacket, says Clayton Sullivan. In Rescuing Jesus from the Christians, he attempts to free Jesus from these constraints. The author proposes four strategies to deliver Jesus from orthodox Christianity: Distinguish between the pre-resurrection and post-resurrection Jesus; realize that there is no obligation to accept all the beliefs held by the early church; beware the tendency to sentimentalize and aggrandize Jesus; and rejoice in religious pluralism.

Drawing on the latest findings in New Testament studies, Clayton Sullivan has written a lively, provocative, and liberating book that challenges all contemporary Christians to reconsider the meaning and purpose of the life of Jesus.
