Was Jesus born of a virgin? Did he know he was the Messiah? Was he bodily resurrected from the dead? Did he intentionally die to redeem humankind? Was Jesus God? Two leading Jesus scholars with widely divergent views go right to the heart of these questions and others, presenting the opposing visions of Jesus that shape our faith today.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tons of Info that Displays both Liberal and Conservative Thought This is an excellent book between two Christian heavyweights. Tom is conversvative while Marcus is very liberal. An excellent read to get the viewpoints on both sides of the equation. The book tackles some strong topics - topics traditional Christians may not have even considered worth debating. They debate whether the virgin birth story was real, whether there was an empty tomb and how important a full resurection is, the composition of the new testament (Q theory, dates of writing, etc), etc. There is a lot of good information in here and you better have an open mind if you are willing to read it. I think Borg is the better writer although I dislike how he stuffs so much info in the footnotes. Too much especially since some of it is very interesting and should be in the book for all to see imo
