Reviews - What do our customers think?
"New Gospel" not for fundamentalists  Sep 14, 2005
Absolutely great, simultaneously critical and spiritual. I have long seen Jesus pretty much the way Mitchell sees him. (a wise and compassionate human being with no pretensions to specialness)
But this book is a revelation; and such "good news" for those who admire Jesus and want to follow his path as decribed in the Sermon on the mount, and the parables of the Prodigal Son and the Good Samaritan, but who find Christology and mystification off-putting.
Grateful for this gift from Mitchell  Apr 24, 2005
I spent a good 15 years of my life trying to make peace with Christianity. I've struggled to appreciate the avid Christians' ability to embrace the Bible as a literal transcription of God's word. I've struggled to forgive those who applied peer pressure to me as a young teen to "accept Jesus as my personal savior." I've pondered with bewilderment the idea that God would create us with inquisitive, questioning minds but then require us to engage in blind acceptance of Jesus' teachings.

Finally, I was pushed over the edge by an evangelical Christian housemate who wouldn't shut up, and I picked up Mitchell's book in the hope of developing my gentle art of verbal self-defense. What an expected blessing this book has been! I was touched deeply and permanently by Mitchell's focus on forgiveness, and the many ways in which the teachings of Jesus the man are relevant to finding the Kingdom of Heaven within myself every day. Mitchell's book has helped me make peace with Christianity and Christians, and that is no small gift.
I would recommend this book to anyone seeking spiritual truth. Mitchell has done a wonderful job of research to find the inconsistencies in other works, including the bible. What remains are not versions of the truth written by those with a personal agenda, but the simple message of the Christ: The Kingdom is Within. Why dogmatic religions don't get this is still beyond my comprehension. Perhaps it's to keep people living in fear of suffering an eternal inferno, or to keep the religious hierarchy alive. But when the man called Jesus embodied the Christ his point was clear: don't follow me, but your own wisdom, for you have the Christ within as well.
For the non-traditional Christian  Feb 8, 2004
I wish Mitchell began this book with more autobiographical material. He spent many years halfway around the world finding spiritual truths in Zen Buddhism. How could he not find Western Christianity a little bit lacking? I found the most perceptive insights speculate on Jesus' psychology as an "illegitimate" child. Did the local community know Joseph was not Jesus' biological father? One wonders how this might have affected Jesus. This book is not for devout traditional Christians, although more liberal Christians might enjoy it.
great book.........  Jul 23, 2003
...but the fudamentalist won't like it! But they don't like much of anything that goes against their narrow, exclusive beliefs.
The Gospel According to Jesus is a magnificent, large-hearted book that makes Jesus come alive again. If you are burnt out on "fundagelicalism", then read this book and be refreshed!
