Synopsis

Synopsis

This radical book reveals the real, historical Jesus – and reminds us what he actually said.

Who was Jesus Christ? Was he God in human form? Was he the divine Son of God, conceived by a virgin, who came down to earth to found the one true religion? This is what the Church has been preaching since the Middle Ages, but the Church’s portrait is a far cry from the Jesus Christ described in the New Testament.

For Christ’s Sake is Tom Harpur’s classic study of what the Bible actually tells us about Jesus. Controversial and radical, in that it goes to the roots of what is known, Harpur’s book strips away the mythology about Jesus to reveal a man whose message is still fresh and relevant today.

About Tom Harpur

Tom Harpur - For Christ's Sake
A former Rhodes scholar and professor of New Testament studies at Wycliffe College, Toronto, Tom Harpur is also an Anglican priest. He resigned from parish work in 1979 to write full-time in the mass media, in the process extending his “parish” to the whole of Canada. His work in newspapers, television, and his books, notably For Christ’ s Sake and Life After Death, have consolidated his reputation as one of Canada’s pre-eminent religious voices and as a sound spiritual guide for modern times.

Praise

“If Harpur’s research and reasoning was the stuff of which sermons were made and honestly presented from the pulpit, churches wouldn’t be empty.”
–Roy Bonisteel, Toronto Star

“A wonderful book, extremely positive.”
–Dr. Harvey Cox, Dean of Divinity, Harvard University

For Christ’s Sake is Harpur at his finest. It is articulate and hard-hitting…a timely and important challenge for the Church in this increasingly secularized world.”
