Do Good To Others, Friends or Enemies All The Same.  Jul 18, 2005
To Christ, Paul said, "There is neither Jew nor Greek, neither slave nor free, neither male nor female." To him, we are all alike, as he hand an entourage of men prophets but did visit women on occasion and preferred those who would wash his feet, instead of cooking for him. At that time, there was no America; and we Christians took our name after him and his teachings.

In the Methodist church, one of the pastors was named Paul, and thus he based most of his sermons on Acts written by the apostle Saul who was changed to Paul after he converted to Christ's teachings and started his own. But sometimes it is good to go back to the Old Testament (everyone loves Psalms, no matter what his belief): "Seek the Lord, and strength: seek his face evermore." Paul offers some reassuring words for the journey: "Be at peace among yourselves...always seek to do good to one another and to all...hold fast to what is good and abstain from every form of evil. See that none of you repays evil for evil." When a person wrongs us, we carry on as best we can and show by example the way Christ would have. After all, he was tormented and killed by non-believers.
The most intriguing retelling of Jesus' story I have read.  Aug 4, 1998
Schwager's telling of the life of Jesus and the early church is fascinating. Faithful to the Gospels and the book of Acts (some events are "rearranged," but plausibly so), it's like a jewel set in a filigree of Old Testament (and Apocryphal) scripture. Indeed, his working of Old Testament references into and through every thought and action of Jesus and the apostles is at times breathtaking. It's not a modern "psychological" or "theological" analysis of Jesus as the title might lead you to believe, but is instead a reverent and powerful retelling of Jesus' life and ministry, through his death and resurrection and into the days of the early church. At once familiar and strange, this book could change the way you read the gospels or view Jesus.

Schwager is putting out a scholarly edition of this book which explains and supports the story as he tells it here.
