Publishers Description
What difference did empire make for Jesus and his disciples? What difference did empire make for the broader social currents of which he and they were a part? What social roles did Jesus perform, what "little tradition" did he embody against the "great tradition" of Roman culture? What difference does it make for our understanding of Jesus if we attend to new kinds of evidence regarding popular movements, the dynamics of oral tradition, and reading history "from below"? Richard A. Horsley addresses all these questions and sketches a dramatic new picture of Jessus in light of recent approaches.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Different Perspective  Mar 30, 2010
Really thought-provoking! Shakes up much of what I've been taught about the Gospels. Outstanding synthesis of multi-disciplinary research to illuminate Jesus's world and theorize about his mission.
liberating information  May 19, 2009
I was indoctrinated as a child to believe a lot of superstitious lies. The truth is better, it's liberating. Understanding this will be the beginning of a deeper, more open spirituality. Don't be afraid of a scientific, multi-disciplinary analysis of the roots of Christianity. We all need to know the historical, cultural, linguistic, and literary context to the stories about Jesus. After all, so much of Western civilization and our culture is based on Christianity.
