    Carroll, who wrestled so artfully with Christianity s, and particularly, the Roman Church s denigration of Jews throughout history, applies a similar treatment to what he calls a modern understanding of Jesus Christ Carroll argues that the experience of the Jesus people changed radically in just the hundred years or so since the death of Jesus The explicit rejection of the Jewishness of Jesus, says Carroll, not only created the terrible history of Western Christian relations with Jewish peop Carroll, who wrestled so artfully with Christianity...

    A stirring and challenging attempt to find the meaning, history, and relevance of Jesus Christ in a secular age Carroll seeks to recover a sense of the Jewishness of Jesus by investigating how the records of his life became distorted by the early Christians who wrote about him Were this the book s only contribution it d still be worth reading, although it is merely reaffirming the conclusions of other scholars of the last few decades who have returned Jesus to his Jewish roots But there s mor A stirring and challenging attempt to find the mean...

    probably not that interesting if you don t answer to a vague self description as christian as a reading experience i d probably give this a 3.5 4 i think carroll gives human beings too much credit, if anything there is a bit of repetition and some of thespeculative passages necessarily speculative, but still speculative are unsatisfying simply because there s nothing anyone can be sure of but i really dug the overall message act like jesus, the guy, not the god , and it doesn t real probably not that interesting if you don t answer to a vague self description as christian as a reading experience i d probably give this a 3.5 4 i think carroll gives human beings too much credit, if anything there is a bit of repetition and some of thespeculative passages necessarily speculative, but still specu...

    How do we believe in God in the post religious twenty first century How do we follow Christ after the Holocaust and the Death of God According to Carroll s beautifully written analysis, both Judaism and Christianity emerged out of just such faith shattering events as the world witnessed in the twentieth century As we continue to come to terms with the twentieth century Holocaust, that spiritual black hole that inevitably bends and distorts our panglossian attempts to construct a conception of How do we believe in God in the post religious twenty first century How do we follow Christ after the Holocaust and the Death of God According to Carroll s beautifully written analysis, both Judaism and Christianity emerged out of just such faith shattering events as the world witnessed in the twentieth century As we continue to come to terms with the twentieth century Holocaust, that spiritual black hole that inevitably bends and distorts our panglossian attempts to construct a conception of the world in which everything works for our own good,...

    I wanted to like this book I loved _Constantine s Sword_ And I must say that after writing this review, I find itvaluable that I thought I would But it s a bit of a hard slog, for some reason, which is odd because much of it is historical Jesus scholarship, which I often enjoy Perhaps it s because he makes a big deal of stuff that to me seems pretty standard i.e., that Jesus and the gospels were deeply critically formed by their context of living through a brutal Roman occupation Ha I wanted to like this book I loved _Constantine s Sword_ And I must say that after writing this review, I find itvaluable that I thought I would But it s a bit of a hard slog, for some reason, which is odd because much of it is historical Jesus scholarship, which I often enjoy Perhaps it s because he makes a big deal of stuff that to me seems pretty standard i.e., that Jesus and the gospels were deeply critically formed by their context of living through a brutal Roman occupation Having read Crossan and Aslan, and having studied this in graduate school, none of that i...

    This is the best book when it comes to looking at Jesus Christ through the Historical Jesus lens This book talked about all the things that my history side was in conflict with the spiritual and belief side This book is not for a layman reader I have a degree in secondary education History and enough ...
