Closely guarded for centuries and painstakingly preserved at great risk to their keepers, the lost words of Jesus are being revealed to the world, giving a glimpse into who Jesus really was while providing timeless answers for timely questions. Renowned scholar, Sayed M. Modarresi, searches for the legacy of Christ within other religious traditions, uncovering gems that have been missing for millennia. Bequeathed by the heirs of Abraham far from the political turmoil of Roman Judea, the social upheaval of the early church, and the perversion of opportunistic impostors, these passages reveal a different side to Jesus, transforming the prevalent image of a placid spiritual healer to a radical transformer who challenged the status quo with a vexatious pose reminiscent of a revolutionary. In a world marred by hate, the lost words of Christ are a felicitous contribution to public discourse and a must read for his followers, as well as anyone searching for the unsullied truth about Jesus and his newfangled worldview. With insightful reflections on each quote, the author attempts to exalt humanity to its uppermost potential using the sagacious vision of one of the most influential men in history.
