This highly original take on the Gospels offers a fresh, new way of imagining human life and society. It presents Jesus not as the founder of a religion but as a world reformer offering a spiritual path to everyone, from every background. It offers a personal spirituality fit for the twenty-first century, where the individual bears responsibility for meaning and for a creative, convivial way of life. In his examination of the original Greek texts, Moore dismisses the cautionary voice of tradition and explores the deeper significance of language, stressing the origins of words and the many levels of meaning in stories and imagery. Through his study, Moore shows that the teachings of Jesus are challenging in a far different way than the moralism often associated with them. Based on being open to life, deepening your understanding, and giving up all defensiveness around your convictions, the Gospels can be the source of a new kind of certainty and stability that cannot be codified and enshrined in a list of rules. Writing in the Sand presents the essence of Jesus teachings and offers a way of understanding them intelligently and devotedly in the twenty-first century., Includes bibliographical references (p. 171-178), Jesus Christ, MWT11357487, Made available through hoopla, Midwestrda, Mode of access: World Wide Web., Moore, Thomas,1940-, RELIGION / Christian Theology / Christology, RELIGION CHRISTAN, Writing in the sand :Jesus and the soul of the Gospels /Thomas Moore., Writing in the sand :Jesus and the soul of the GospelsThomas Moore., [United States]:Hay House Publishing ,2009., computerc, eBook hoopla, hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/vsa_9781401926083_180.jpeg, online resourcecr, text file, texttxt, xxi, 179 p. ;22 cm.
