When Jesus came to Harvard : making moral choices today

by Harvey Cox

Hardcover, 2004




Boston : Houghton Mifflin, 2004.


"In his new book, Cox brings the moral wisdom of Rabbi Jesus into the twenty-first century by way of the questions, arguments, responses, and doubts of centuries of rabbinic and Christian theological exploration, as well as the voices of the thousands of Harvard students who attended his course over the years. Cox shows how we can extrapolate from Jesus' parables and bridge the gap between the ancient and modern worlds." "When Jesus Came to Harvard is not another look at the "historical Jesus," but it considers Jesus' contemporary significance by concentrating on the stories he told and those told about him. For youth and adults, Christian and non-Christian, When Jesus Came to Harvard is urgently relevant."--BOOK JACKET.

Love it! I expected a quick read but there is so much content in this book. I thank the author its publishing. My only wish is that it were longer or gave more examples of what the students did in class.
