Item description for The Existential Jesus by John Carroll...
Upending Christianity's popular notion of Jesus the comforter, the good shepherd, the Lord and Savior, this forceful document reexamines the Christ image of the New Testament gospels---the mysterious stranger, the singular, abandoned, and solitary figure---and rethinks the current role of Western culture throughthis altered view of Christianity. The existential Jesus has no interest in sin, and his focus is not onan afterlife. He gestures enigmatically from within his own torturous experience, inviting the reader to walk in his shoes and ask the question, Who am I?---establishing Jesus as the West's great teacher on the nature of being. Incorporating a new and original translation of the Gospel of Mark from its original Greek, this radical reinterpretation identifiesthe philosophical and cultural significance of the gospels in the modern world, based on the life and actions---rather than the word---of Jesus Christ.
