Summary
Who is Jesus Christ? Spiritual leader Chopra provides an answer that is both a challenge to current systems of belief and a fresh perspective on what Jesus can teach us all, regardless of our religious background. There is not one Jesus, but three. First, the historical Jesus, who lived more than two thousand years ago and whose teachings are the foundation of Christian thought. Next there is the Son of God, who embodies an institutional religion with dogma, a priesthood, and believers. And finally, the cosmic Christ, the spiritual guide whose teaching embraces all humanity. He speaks to the individual who wants to find God as a personal experience, to attain what some might call grace, or enlightenment. Ultimately, Chopra argues, Christianity needs to overcome its tendency to be exclusionary and refocus on being a religion of personal insight and spiritual growth, so that Jesus can be seen for the universal teacher he truly is.--From publisher description
Summary
Explores three different views of Jesus Christ--the historical Jesus, the mythical figure created by the church to represent years of church teaching and theology, and the radical teacher who taught his followers how to change the world
