In this impassioned and eye-opening book, Gordon takes us through all the fundamental stories the Prodigal Son, the Temptation in the Desert, the parable of Lazarus, the Agony in the Garden pondering the intense strangeness of a deity in human form, the unresolved more ambiguities, the problem posed to her as an enlightened reader by the miracle of the Resurrection. What she rediscovers and reinterprets with her signature candor, intelligence, and straightforwardness is a rich store of overlapping, sometimes conflicting teachings that feel both familiar and tantalizingly elusive. It is this unsolvable conundrum that rests at the heart of "Reading Jesus.
"A fresh and humane take on the Gospels. Gordon's approach is aware of, but not burdened by, doctrine." ---Mark Jarman, award-winning author of Epistles
