Ever feel like Jesus has been kidnapped by the Christian Right and discarded by the Secular Left?

- The World into Which Jesus Was Born
- Jesus’ Birth: Incarnation
- Teachings of Jesus: Wisdom Tradition

- Jesus’ Ministry of Compassion
- Who Killed Jesus?
- The Atonement
- The Resurrection of Christ
- Why Jesus Is Worth Saving
“We’re having a culture war and Jesus happens to be one of the weapons tossed about by both sides.” — Amy-Jill Levine
