Mythologizing Jesus

Full Product Description

Our culture is well-populated with superheroes: Super Man, Wonder Woman, Spider Man, and more. Superheroes are not a modern invention; in fact, they are prehistoric. The gods and goddesses of the Greeks, for example, walked on water, flew, visited the land of the dead, and lived forever. Ancient Christians told similar stories about Jesus, their primary superhero-he possessed incredible powers of healing, walked on water, rose from the dead, and more. Dennis R. MacDonald shows how the stories told in the Gospels parallel many in Greek and Roman epics to compel their readers into life-changing decisions to follow Jesus. MacDonald doesn't call into question the existence of Jesus but rather asks readers to examine the Biblical stories about him through a new, mythological lens.

Mythologizing Jesus by Dennis R. MacDonald was published by Rowman & Littlefield in May 2015. The ISBN for Mythologizing Jesus is 9780742558915.
