“In this study I found a Lord, a center for my being. Behind the supernatural framework of the first century…I discover a life I wanted to know; a life that possessed a power I wanted to possess; a freedom, a wholeness for which I had yearned for years.” Illuminating the “figure who stands at the center of all the Christian Church is,” John Shelby Spong explores Jesus under the light of the Hebrew tradition into which he was born. Candid, personal, and soundly argued, this is Spong’s spiritual and intellectual pilgrimaged to the Christ he discovered in Jesus of Nazareth
