Publisher's Summary

The life of Jesus offers each one of us a map to the direct realization of our eternal and divine nature. On Resurrecting Jesus, Adyashanti excavates the deep, mythic underpinnings of the Gospels to show how we can all find in the story of Jesus the spark for our own spiritual unfolding. 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 these intimate sessions, Adya invites 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 spiritual awakening that we may be called to experience ourselves. Adya concludes by illuminating 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. "Jesus symbolizes the spiritual mystery of each one of us," explains Adya, "and points us toward the radiance available right now - the grace through which we realize that we are each sons and daughters of a living God." Resurrecting Jesus will inspire you to pour yourself fully into "the transmission of infinite love" that he represents - to discover how that love revolutionizes our lives and our world.

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.
