Finding the Way Again: Rediscovering Radical Love and Freedom in the Lost Teachings of Jesus

It's not too late to discover the lost gospel of Jesus and begin to live by it, to change our direction, to once again become people of the way. We could, with humility, embody compassion and justice. We could so completely trust God that we dare to share what we have with those in need, love those who hate us, bless those who curse us.

Publisher's Summary

It's not too late to discover the lost gospel of Jesus and begin to live by it, to change our direction, to once again become people of the way. We could, with humility, embody compassion and justice. We could so completely trust God that we dare to share what we have with those in need, love those who hate us, bless those who curse us.

What's been lost can be found again. Do we dare? Can we hear the call clearly and be so moved we must respond? If we sense that something profound and precious has been lost, we can do something about it. It's like a treasure that's been lost, long since buried in a field. All we have to do is go and sell all we have and buy the field.

My goal with this intentionally simple, slim volume (based on scholarship, but not bogged down by notes and references) is to attempt to remove that which has obscured, hidden, and even replaced Jesus and his radical revolution, extricating him from the stiflingly narrow religious context that all but silences him so his message can reverberate around us, resonate within us.

There is hope.

This can happen.

If Jesus teaches us anything, it is that which was once dead can live again, that which was lost can be found.

    "challanging"

    This short book has obviously been thought about allot before the authur published it. It's basic theme is that Christians have ignored the fundimental teaching of Jesus, and simply absorbed Him into "religon" The book takes a fresh look at many of the parables brining them up to date in an enlightening way. The author challages the reader to accept the "lost" teaching of Jesus which is (according to the book) that followers of "the way" have on the one hand to accept the uncondtional love of God, but are also expected to show their unconditional love to others, including enemies. At times the book repeated itslef regarding this message, also the author somtimes refers to God as "she" but did not give a reason for this.

    It is however challaging, and thought provoking, and well worth lisening to if you are a Christian, or have an interest.

    I would like to be able to put some of the radical love into action, but that's hard to do, which is the other point the book makes, how many of us are really prepared to pray for our enimies? That would take allot of faith, wouldn't it?
