This is a very helpful resource for me and my faith journey. I am a an ordained, seminary trained minister and I need something more for my intellectual and spiritual understanding of Jesus. Cynthia Bourgeault meets both of these needs through 'Encountering the Wisdom Jesus'.

Cynthia writes, speaks, and shares in a manner that makes so much sense as she sheds light on perceptions and missed-perceptions of who Jesus Christ was and how He earned wisdom with the assist of others (various spiritual paths) while on earth. My appreciation for faith practice as a Christian that includes daily contemplative prayer seems brighter because of my growing understanding of what is shared in "Encountering the Wisdom Jesus". I am now giving the series as a gift to close friends who also have come to appreciate her sharing AND her wisdom.

A lovely and challenging teaching that has breathed new life into old stories, well thats how I saw them till I listened to this. I now feel I have caught a glimse of the depth of the love and bravery to hold the mirror of the infinite to his own soul that I feel Jesus invited through his teachings and life .I guess what has been really positive for me is that through practiceing this teaching on a day to day basis is that , to be just human is ok. It doesn't always work out but we can always start 'now' :)

This was absolutely excellent...it has really opened up my Christian faith when I'd all but given up on it! Talk about wandering around in the desert!!! I had wondered what "the living water" could possibly be, that Jesus had talked about...now I know!!!!!!!!

CB provides the framework for a more enlightened Christianity. Great for anyone trying to remain a Christian despite all the nonsense out there.

Insightful and, thought leaving some points to be tasken as assumptions unsupported with reason or explanation, worth the purchase price and learning time. Looking forward to a follow up product on the same subject.
