What is wrong with modern Christianity? Did Christianity get off on the wrong foot almost from its inception? That is the thesis of this thought provoking and challenging book, a fascinating new take on the Jesus Christ we thought we were familiar with.

The starting point of the book is the Gospel of Thomas, restored to us when it was found among the Nag Hammadi scrolls in the Egyptian desert in 1945. These scrolls date back to early Christianity, being at least as old as the four canonical gospels, now widely regarded as the authentic teachings of Jesus, and give us a radical new take on Jesus and the metaphysics of his teaching.
Referring also to the 1960s Syriac studies, the Qumran Dead Sea Scrolls, Celtic poetry, Chinese Jesus Sutras, the African desert fathers, and so on, the author convincingly argues that the familiar Christian creeds and doctrines put together in the fourth century get in the way of understanding Jesus as a master in ancient spiritual wisdom, who was teaching the meltdown and recasting, the transformation, of human consciousness. This is the Eastern-like wisdom path of Jesus the life giver, a Jesus who is like us, calling us to put on the mind of Christ, telling us that the Kingdom of Heaven is a metaphor for a state of consciousness, a transformed awareness, a nondual or unitive consciousness, of divine abundance. There is then no separation between God and human, between human and human, all dwelling together in mutual loving reciprocity. The Kingdom of Heaven is within us and at hand, here and now, something we awaken into, not die into. This contrasts with the Pauline image of Jesus as Savior, who died for our sins, who is different from us, and has come to atone for mankind's depravity.

Format: Paperback
This is a refreshing read on the Jesus story, full of insightful gems, leading the reader and spiritual seeker into another realm of faith and wisdom. So much Jesus scholarship is devoted to historical and theological analysis. We need the scholarly analysis, but the deeper integration of our faith also requires the mystical insight and vision which Cynthia Bourgeault illustrates so vividly in this inpsiring read.

Cynthia Bourgeault is undoubtedly a scholar of the Wisdom tradition and a walker of the spiritual path. Her breadth of vision and reference material is very impressive and although scholarly in her approach, her work is accessible and rich with meaning. This book provides tools to assist in the transformation of consciousness and as such the wisdom and gems it offers are priceless.

This is an amazing perspective on Jesus from the context of Wisdom, which wonderfully brings out how his message is about a transformation of consciousness. Radical, yet aligned with the heart of tradition, this is one of the best books - perhaps the best - I have read on mystic Christianity.

Cynthia Bourgeault's book 'The Wisdom Jesus' is the most refreshing spiritual book I have read in years. Bourgeault takes our traditional understanding of the life and teaching of Jesus and turns that traditional teaching on its head by interpreting the teaching of Jesus through the wisdom tradition. In doing so, this author has opened my mind to some amazing insights and encouraged me to reconsider some major aspects of the teaching of Jesus and what it means to us in our lives today. The book was recommended to me by a friend who is a theologian - I am very grateful to her!

I have been enormously inspired by this book. It challenges and affirms and sends me out again into a changed world where there is a God - bigger than the one I had previously perceived. Are you serious about knowing God in yourself and in others? Read this.

Format: Paperback
This is the second copy of "The Wisdom Jesus" I have acquired. I don't want to give up my copy while I loan it to friends.
This book is the best book I have read to convey the consciousness of Jesus. There have been many recognition moments of "yes! thats what I think about Jesus" It opens up new teaching found in the Beatitudes and "The Gospel of Thomas" and the "Hard Parables" which reveal the depth and challenge of Jesus message.
It provides also a way of discipline in Centering Prayer which enables the human person to practice Jesus Way.
