The Reverend George M. Maxwell, Jr., Vicar of The Cathedral of St. Philip recommends this book, saying: "Cynthia Bourgeault is an Episcopal priest and celebrated wisdom teacher. She reveals the contemplative dimension of Jesus in a wonderfully accessible way. She’ll make you think, but in the end you will be able to experience Jesus in a new and life-giving way."
A remarkable look at Jesus as a teacher of the wisdom tradition and the transformation of consciousness.
If you put aside what you "think" you know about Jesus and approach the Gospels as though for the first time, something remarkable happens: Jesus emerges as a teacher of the transformation of consciousness. Cynthia Bourgeault takes us through the historical background of wisdom writings, wisdom teachings, and Jesus's vision of transformation and the traditional contemplative practices. Paperback. 224pp
