First published in 2001, Richard Holloway has produced a scholarly and accessible work in which he sets out to interrogate traditional ways of understanding the Bible and Jesus. He deconstructs the doctrines of Christianity to craft from the past a usable ethic for our own time, anxious to release the power of these great themes from the antiquated containers that convey them. Holloway's radical book is a rescue attempt, a heartfelt and passionately argued case for salvaging the challenge of Jesus by revealing the essence of his teachings and showing why they remain revolutionary, humane and of massive spiritual importance.
