Setting Jesus FreeMelanie Carroll, via The Good Book Stall
This is a fantastically refreshing and extremely passionate book that deals with liberal theology - yes I know, a passionate book on Liberal theology. Churcher takes gospel Jesus, that is to say he takes sections of the gospels and then looks at those sections and explains them in a commentary fashion for want of a better term. However he offers forward the radical liberal theologian’s takes on them as well, he looks at the gospel of Thomas and uses this too as a basis of consideration for these passages, and from this what we get is a social justice critique amongst other things. A critique whilst on one level seeming to bring down the fundamental beliefs such as Jesus' divinity somehow manages to build up the reality of the model of a working faith - a faith based on social consideration, on community centeredness’ but with a vibrancy that is somehow often lacking in the dogma and disagreement of today.
This is an intensely readable book and whilst challenging on some levels it is nevertheless also enlightening and very much worthy of consideration as it provides an interesting and easy way into liberal theology and biblical study.
