The greatest story ever told was honed like any good performance, on the road in front of audiences. Acclaimed scholar L. Michael White challenges us to read the gospels as they were intended—as performed stories of faith, not factual accounts—and illuminates the agendas that motivated each of their authors. A fresh account of the gospels that have shaped centuries of Christian belief, Scripting Jesus offers important insight into how we can understand Jesus’s story today.

Book Depository International
(London, United Kingdom)

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English. Brand new Book. In Scripting Jesus, Michael White, famed scholar of early Christian history, reveals how the gospel stories of Jesus were never meant to be straightforward historical accounts, but rather were scripted and honed as performance pieces for four different audiences with four different theological agendas. As he did as a featured presenter in two award-winning PBS Frontline documentaries ("From Jesus to Christ" and "Apocalypse!"), White engagingly explains the significance of some lesser-known aspects of The New Testament; in this case, the development of the stories of Jesus--including how the gospel writers differed from one another on facts, points of view, and goals. Readers of Elaine Pagels, Marcus Borg, John Dominic Crossan, and Bart Ehrman will find much to ponder in Scripting Jesus. Seller Inventory # AAV9780061228803
