Where does Resurrecting Jesus rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This is one of the best audiobooks I have listened to. It is an in depth look at the life of Jesus through the lense of spiritual awakening.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Resurrecting Jesus?
This book brought so much understanding about the both humanness and divinity of Jesus - it feels like I've had an insight into the character of Jesus as a person, rather than just viewing him as a mythical, saintly figure.
Have you listened to any of Adyashanti’s other performances? How does this one compare?
All of Adyashanti's performances are captivating and opening. This is comparable in quality.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
There was a lot of information to experience and take in - I think this book needs time and a willingness to try to get a feel for the story in a more experiential way.
Any additional comments?
Definitely a fascinating book for anyone interested in spirituality or the Jesus story. It is a rigorous, credible insight into an alternative interpretation.

My favourite audiobook!
This book had been in my 'wish list' for over a year and I eventually purchased it. What can I say? I loved this audio book so much that I have also bought a hard copy! I've been 'turned off' by Christianity (as taught in Church) since adolescence and I constantly looked elsewhere for my spiritual development. If only I had been taught the story of Jesus in this way. I have felt so incredibly moved, inspired and above all connected. I highly recommend this book! Thank you so much for this incredible interpretation and for communicating it in such an accessible way.

Review of Resurrecting Jesus
Would you consider the audio edition of Resurrecting Jesus to be better than the print version?
Who was your favorite character and why?
What about Adyashanti’s performance did you like?
I really enjoyed this audiobook. As a teacher myself and lover of Jesus, I was fascinated to hear what Adyashanti, a truly wonderful and clear nondual teacher, had to say about Jesus and his life. Adyashanti beautifully and eloquently explained the metaphorical meaning of the Jesus story and how Jesus’s life symbolized the journey of awakening and enlightenment. Throughout the book, Adya deftly wove his understanding of Jesus’s teachings and the Jesus story with what Adya himself has been teaching these many years, tying the teachings of Christ with present-day nondual teachings, as only someone like Adya could do. I was impressed with Adya’s knowledge of the gospels and, most of all, with the love he has for Jesus and the Christian mystics. Adya’s own heart was very apparent in this book. If you are interested in this subject, you will not be disappointed. Adya was courageous in tackling this subject, but his interest in Jesus has obviously been lifelong and passionate enough to make him just the right instrument for it.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Valuing the Jesus story across traditions
Adyashanti, a Zen Buddhist teacher, does an excellent job describing how the Jesus story illuminates and complements his understanding of spiritual and psychological realities. The Jesus story is foundational to Western culture, so warrants deep understanding. (For many, cultural Christianity doesn't convey the tradition's depth and richness. The writings of the Christian mystics awakened Adya to this further depth.) Especially when understood as mythic storytelling, the Jesus story's emphasis on love, redemption, divinity/humanity, and the kingdom of heaven (transformed consciousness) enriches every spiritual path.
