Abstract:

"As a historian following cultural stories, Brian Griffith notices when people retell those stories and, in the process, totally change their meaning. In Correcting Jesus, he looks at the story of Christianity as we know it, and the record of Christians as they correct Jesus on subjects like Judaism, forgiveness, women, freedom, war, and charity. What, he asks, have been the results of correcting Jesus on these things?" "If you ever have wondered how the Jesus who urges "think for yourselves" was turned into the Jesus who thunders "my way or the highway," Correcting Jesus tells us in plain language how that transformation began-and how it's continuing today"--BOOK JACKET.
