About-

In News from the Kingdom of God, minister and poet David Breeden introduces readers to a Jesus hidden for fifteen hundred years. This new translation of The Gospel of Thomas not only reveals the incisive spiritual vision of Jesus, but also the poetry of his thinking. These meditations include wisdom from diverse religious traditions to delineate a spiritual practice at once mystical and profoundly grounded in both Eastern and Western religious traditions. Jesus lives in these pages, a profound wisdom teacher.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"For non-Christians who are curious about the essential message of Jesus, this volume offers an accessible and original account. For Christians who want to connect the Gospels' provocative sayings with the wisdom of Buddhist, Muslim, and secular traditions, as well as the insights of later Christian mystics, it is a gift. These short meditations reveal a fresh portrait of Jesus as a shrewd spiritual teacher rather than a divine hero; one who seeks to startle his hearers awake to the more abundant life that is always present and ready to hand. It would make a superb meditation manual for anyone who finds inspiration where the paths of various religious journeys intersect and strike light-giving sparks from each other."
-Kendyl Gibbons
Senior Minister, First Unitarian Society of Minneapolis

"News from the Kingdom is a deep, spiritual well of renewal, challenge, and joy. Breeden's poetry and meditations make the Gospel of Thomas accessible to contemporary hearts, inviting us all to the great dance in each and every day."
-Naomi King
Unitarian Universalist Minister
City of Refuge Ministries
