Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"This book is a powerful address to those 'nones' or doubters, along with thoughtful believers, who yearn for deep patterns of meaning, yet do not find a home in traditional religious communities."
--Mark Valeri, John C. Danforth Center on Religion and Politics, Washington University in St. Louis
"In this significant volume readers will discover a gentle and wise guide who has laid out a path of exploration for those who remain certain about traditional faith, but even more for those on the margins and beyond, those for whom traditional ways of expressing faith no longer work."
--V. Bruce Rigdon, President Emeritus, Ecumenical Theological Seminary
"The universal teachings of Jesus, peace be upon him, in this unique book, splash in my heart. Ferguson is a masterful teacher. This book inspires me profoundly to want to become a more developed human being and to be of genuine service in the cause of social justice and earth care."
--Imam Jamal Rahman, teacher; author
"By assaying the historical and cultural context, the role and identity of the teacher, instructional methods, curricular content, and overarching aims, Ferguson sheds considerable light on the greatest teacher in the history of humankind."
--Gordon S. Mikoski, Associate Professor of Christian Education; Director of PhD Studies; Editor, Theology Today; Princeton Theological Seminary
"Ferguson offers an invaluable resource. . . . Through careful historical and literary study of early Christian traditions, Ferguson exposes core elements of Jesus' career as healer, teacher, and prophet that, in turn, anchor the biblical mandate to "go and do likewise."
--Suzanne Watts Henderson, Associate Professor of Religion, Queens University of Charlotte
