Publisher's Summary

If you put aside what you think you know about Jesus and approach the Gospels as though for the first time, something remarkable happens: Jesus emerges as a teacher of the transformation of consciousness. Cynthia Bourgeault is a masterful guide to Jesus' vision and to the traditional contemplative practices you can use to experience the heart of his teachings for yourself.

    "An Excellent View Point"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes this was an excellent book on the topic of transforming the heart through the eyes of the Christian point of view. I totally appreciated how the author presented her points without being ultra pious or not appreciating that other religious traditions are equally valid.


    Any additional comments?

    I believe that this is one of those books that deserves to be listened to at least three times as the information is rich and much can be missed with only one listening. A total pleasure each time I listened. Very worthwhile.

    Story
    "Just plain heresy."

    Once one gets past the pretty packaging, this book is simply heretical. Or, put differently, the author does not describe the gospel of Jesus Christ or Christianity but some other religion.

    Story
    "The Wisdom Jesus"

    If you are a regular church attendee and are happy with the order of service in your church then perhaps this book is not for you.
    If however you are looking for a deeper meaning to Christian worship a more profound meaning to the teaching of the gospel then this book is perhaps what you have been looking for.
    The author challenges long held and sometimes ignorant beliefs with a new perspective on the Christian message. She says our great mistake is looking at Christ and his life with 20/20 hindsight and thinking that because we were brought up in the Christian tradition we know everything there is to know.
    If this is you then think again and listen to this profound and interesting book. You will not be disappointed.

    Story
    "This book really resonated with me"
    What made the experience of listening to The Wisdom Jesus the most enjoyable?

    While some of the content was quite challenging to orthodox Christianity as it is now, I found that much of what the author was saying resonated with me, made a lot of sense and ultimately made me feel much closer to and more comfortable with Jesus. Jesus came here to be our teacher and many of his most important lessons have been misinterpreted, overlooked or deliberately skewed to suit the ends of those that came later and set up Christianity as we now know it and this turned me away from the church for many years. However, books like this one seek to find the real Jesus, the real teaching and the true meaning of his life and death and resurrection. Follow and get to know the man and let him live in your heart and leave behind the the constrained practices, rules and regulations that have been built up around his name over the last 2000 years.


    What other book might you compare The Wisdom Jesus to, and why?

    So far, I have never read any other book like this one.


    What does Jo Howarth bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    The narration was gentle and easy to listen to and I did not tire of hearing Jo's voice.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    If you thought you knew Jesus, think again. See Jesus with new vision in this thought provoking book by Cynthia Bourgeault.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a book that I will listen to again many times and I am looking forward to reading more books by this author.
