I discovered Marcus Borg at a time in my life when I wasn't sure what I believed about Jesus but I knew that I wanted to love him. This brief historical overview of Jesus as a healer, wisdom teacher, social prophet and movement initiator showed that, regardless of whatever dogmas you choose to define it, the real Jesus was divinely human and humanly divine.

What's amazing about this book as a reader of the Urantia Book is how well Marcus Borg's historical depiction of Jesus' message and character fits with the Urantia Book's, despite never mentioning the Urantia Book directly. This review of the book appeared in a Urantian publication:
