The story of Jesus has not waned in its power to change lives. Yet today, even though the majority of us grew up in a culture suffused by the mythos of Jesus, many of us feel disconnected from the essence and vitality of his teachings. With Resurrecting Jesus, Adyashanti invites us to rediscover the life and teachings of Jesus as a direct path to what may be the most radical of transformations: spiritual awakening.

Jesus crossed all of the boundary lines that separated the people of his time because he viewed the world from the perspective of what unites us, not what divides us. In Resurrecting Jesus, Adya asks us to consider the man known as Jesus as a model of enlightened engagement with the world. He examines the story of Jesus from his birth to the Resurrection to reveal how the central events in Jesus' life parallel the stages of awakening that we may be called to experience ourselves. Adya then illuminates five central archetypes of the Jesus story—Peter, John, Mary Magdalene, Judas, and Pontius Pilate—and the key insights they hold about the way we might relate to the spiritual impulse within. Our journey concludes with an inspiring call to "live the Christ" in a way that is unique to each one of us.

"When the eternal and the human meet," writes Adya, "that's where love is born—not through escaping our humanity or trying to disappear into transcendence, but through finding that place where they come into union." Resurrecting Jesus is a book for realizing this union in your own life, from one moment to the next, with heart and mind wide open to the mystery that lives inside us all.

Absolutely fantastic resource. This book is thought-provoking, and challenging. Adyashanti writes clearly and from the heart about the path towards living our "beingness" and the way in which the story of Christ as a real human being, and at the same time embodied spiritual being, teaches us how to do this. So much in this rich book, you really have to read it yourself.

In order to "see" through linear thinking especially on the spiritual quest and to think outside the box --- Adyashanti's meditations on Jesus is a pathway to the infinite "Mystery of Being". This book is unconventional and radical....I am glad he had the "audacity" to release this book to those who are hungry for a fresh approach to embracing Jesus!

A welcome examination of a traditionally unwrapped phenomena, what is so often missed, the subject of western mysticism through Jesus christ.
