Read in January, 2008

In previous books, Marcus Borg has stated the importance of placing Jesus within his historical framework, and has emphasized the distinction between pre- and post-Easter conceptions of Jesus. In this newest book, Borg actually gives that elusive history and background. His entire presentation seems much more polished than in any of his previous books, and he provides the most comprehensive alternative picture of Jesus I've seen. Not merely a vehicle for Borg's politics, the Jesus Borg pictures is vibrant and compelling. While this picture is unorthodox, to say the least, it is presented in such a way as to be palatable to a wider audience than any of his previous books.
