A series of faith explorations on the rescuing of Jesus today
Ever feel like Jesus has been kidnapped by the Christian Right and discarded by the Secular Left?
Saving Jesus is a 12-session DVD-based small group exploration of a credible Jesus for the third millennium, led by Jo Love, Graham Maule and others.
Produced by Living The Questions, it has contributors including Brian McLaren, Diana Butler Bass, and Robin Meyers join Marcus Borg, Walter Brueggemann, John Dominic Crossan, Matthew Fox, Amy-Jill Levine, and a host of others for a conversation around the relevance of Jesus for today.
“We’re having a culture war and Jesus happens to be one of the weapons tossed about by both sides.” – Amy-Jill Levine
