Product Description

Was Jesus born of a virgin? Did he know he was the messiah? Was he bodily resurrected from the dead? Was Jesus God? In The Meaning of Jesus, two leading Jesus scholars with widely divergent views go right to the heart of these questions and others, presenting the opposing visions of Jesus that shape our faith today.

In alternating chapters, Marcus Borg, the most popular revisionist voice on Jesus, and N.T. Wright, the most prominent standard-bearer for traditionalism, present their views of who Jesus was, what he taught, and what he did. Candid, spirited, and thoughtfully debated, this compelling discourse will stimulate fresh ideas and intense dialogue among anyone concerned with what it means to be a Christian today.

Marcus J. Borg, author of bestseller Heart of Christianity, is Hundere Distinguished Professor of Religion and Culture at Oregon State University and author of the bestselling Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time, Reading the Bible Again for the First Time, The God We Never Knew, and coauthor of Jesus: A New Vision with N. T. Wright.

N. T. Wright is Bishop of Durham in the Church of England and one of the world's leading Bible scholars. He has taught New Testament studies at Cambridge, McGill, and Oxford universities. Wright is the award-winning author of Surprised by Hope, Simply Christian, The Last Word, The Challenge of Jesus, and The Meaning of Jesus (coauthored with Marcus Borg).

"A fascinating, highly civilized conversation on the central issues about Jesus under debate today. Bravo to this intelligent spirit of searching for common ground "

- Elizabeth Johnson, author of She Who Is
