What Jesus Meant by Garry Wills

Book Description

"Garry Wills brings his signature brand of erudite, unorthodox thinking to his latest book of revelations. . . . A tour de force and a profound show of faith." ("O, the Oprah Magazine)" In what are billed "culture wars," people on the political right and the political left cite Jesus as endorsing their views. But in this "New York Times-"bestselling masterpiece, Garry Wills argues that Jesus subscribed to no political program. He was far more radical than that. In a fresh reading of the gospels, Wills explores the meaning of the "reign of heaven" Jesus not only promised for the future but brought with him into this life. It is only by dodges and evasions that people misrepresent what Jesus plainly had to say against power, the wealthy, and religion itself. But Wills is just as critical of those who would make Jesus a mere ethical teacher, ignoring or playing down his divinity. An illuminating analysis for believers and nonbelievers alike, "What Jesus Meant" is a brilliant addition to our national conversation on religion.
