"Using his fertile imagination, drawing upon his own translations of the Gospels, [Thomas Moore] offers fresh interpretations to deepen and enliven anyone's spiritual life. Calling the texts "intelligent, challenging, and incredibly inspiring," Moore encourages us to take to heart the stories and distinctive imagery of the Gospels and the many insights to be found there about the central themes of the human adventure. He explores how Jesus gives us a rounded and ripe sense of the kingdom of God; challenges our long-accepted ideas about purity, wealth, and power; and gives us parables that turn things upside down. Sayings by and stories about Jesus model a path of love, empathy, sharing, self-possession, sensuality, and treating all people well."
