In this popular yet academically grounded look at Jesus, liberation theologians Dorothee Soelle and Luise Schottroff offer a corrective to the "Jesus of history" research recently made popular through the works of the Jesus Seminar. By situating Jesus within this community of friends--who played a large part in his life, ministry, and movement--the authors show that the story of Jesus has not come to a close. Rather, this book demonstrates how his works, words, and inspired community pose timeless challenges for contemporary life. Includes sixty-seven color illustrations, a glossary, chronological table, map, and brief annotated bibliography.
