Reading Jesus: A Writer's Encounter with the Gospels
by Gordon, Mary
List price: $17.00
Reading Jesus is a personal journey through the fundamental Biblical stories. As celebrated author Mary Gordon ponders the intense strangeness of a deity in human form, unresolved moral ambiguities within the text, and 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.
