Who is the real Jesus? How can we experience the mystery, compelxity, and richness of his spirituality and teachings in our lives today? In this gently instructive and inspiring guide, Luke Timothy Johnson leads us to a deeper understanding and practice of classic Christian spirituality and faith. Translating his biblical scholarship into simple, elegant language, he offers a compelling and wise reflection on the real Jesus--not the reconstructed historical figure but the resurrected Christ, a living savior we can encounter every day.

Living Jesus elucidates the mystery of Jesus' resurrection and its central role in the Christian experience. It explores the diversity and fullness of the New Testament views of Christ, revealing how each book's perspective can deepen our understanding of Jesus. Profoundly insightful, Living Jesus offers valuable lessons on how we can accept the Gospels' powerful invitation to an authenic Christian spirituality.

Highly recommended"-- Lawrence Cunningham, "Commonweal""If you want to understand the Jesus the church has always worshiped, rather than the diminutive figure of some recent Jesus tomes, this is the book for you."-- Dr. Ben Witherington III, Asbury Theological Seminary, author of "The Jesus Quest""Johnson does indeed lead u sinto the heart of the Gospel."-- James J. Buckley, coeditor of "Modern Theology""Johnson demonstrates that the 'living Jesus' of the biblical traditions is immensely more fascinating and significant than any other of the 'dead Jesuses' that the quests for the historical Jesus keep producing"-- Miroslav volf, Yale University Divinity School"A stirring book...informative and challenging." -- "The Bible Today
