About this product
- DescriptionGarry Wills brings his signature brand of erudite, urthodox thinking to his latest book of revelations. . . . A tour de force and a profound show of faith. ( O, the Oprah Magazine) In what are billed culture wars, people on the political right and the political left cite Jesus as endorsing their views. But in this New York Times- bestselling masterpiece, Garry Wills argues that Jesus subscribed to political program. He was far more radical than that. In a fresh reading of the gospels, Wills explores the meaning of the reign of heaven Jesus t only promised for the future but brought with him into this life. It is only by dodges and evasions that people misrepresent what Jesus plainly had to say against power, the wealthy, and religion itself. But Wills is just as critical of those who would make Jesus a mere ethical teacher, igring or playing down his divinity. An illuminating analysis for believers and nbelievers alike, What Jesus Meant is a brilliant addition to our national conversation on religion.
