"This is unlike any translation I've encountered. Simple,
beautiful and highly readable.... People of all faiths,
and those with none, will find meaning and perspective in this
--Dr. James Guy, president, Headington Institute, Pasadena, California; former dean, School of Psychology, Fuller Theological Seminary"So much of our daily tragic news is a direct result of a narrow, irresponsible and inaccurate view of the Christ. Thank you, Thomas Moore, for inviting us to re-envision Jesus, not as an engine of division, but as a healer of headlines."
--Rev. Susan Sparks, senior pastor, Madison Avenue Baptist Church; author, Laugh Your Way to Grace"As an archeologist of the soul, Thomas Moore probes these ancient artifacts and finds in the words and deeds of a radical Jesus a critique of the social ills that plague us and the encouragement we need to work toward the healing of our little place in a chaotic world. His translation is fresh, clear and inviting, and his commentary, enlightening and sometimes surprising."
--George W. E. Nickelsburg, professor emeritus, University of Iowa"Guides us beyond biblical literalism, opening windows that have long been painted shut. The master turns his extraordinary soul and pen back to the source, enlivening and healing our reading of sacred text. Here is a holy book that is indeed inclusive, expansive, edgy and thrilling--a book redirecting our gaze, in Moore's own words, to the 'the Kingdom of the Sky.'"
--Rabbi Lawrence Kushner, Emanu-El Scholar, Congregation Emanu-El of San Francisco; author of many books on Jewish mysticism and spirituality
