Special Order


Using the gospel of Mark as their guide, top Jesus scholars Marcus J. Borg and John Dominic Crossan join together to reveal a radical and little-known Jesus. Presenting a day-by-day account of Jesus's final week of life, Borg and Crossan introduce a Jesus who is a new moral hero, a more dangerous Jesus than the one enshrined in the church's traditional teachings. Informed and challenged, we meet not only the historical Jesus, but a new Jesus who engages us and inspires us to follow him.
