About-

From his boyhood in Tipperary, Kildare, and Donegal to the pinnacle of biblical scholarship, John Dominic Crossan’s adventurous spirit has led him to seek out the truth no matter where it leads. In this delightful memoir, the former monk and controversial biblical scholar tells how his work as a pioneering historical Jesus expert has led him from the traditional Catholicism of his youth to a more complex, sophisticated faith. With characteristic wit and candor, he describes the joys and challenges of growing up in Ireland and reveals how his life experiences—from Ireland to America, Rome, and Israel, from monastery to university, from priesthood to marriage—have shaped his understanding of God, Jesus, the Church, and what it means to be a true Christian.

Endorsements & Reviews-

Crossan applies the same intellectual curiosity and cool objectivity to his own life that he has spent half a lifetime applying to the life of Jesus.

-MICHAEL FARRELL, editor of The National Catholic Reporter



A great narrative! This book gives the reader a rare insight into one of the great figures of contemporary Christianity as well as an awareness of the events that moved his life. Crossan has helped a generation of Christians to separate the essence of their faith from the traditional trappings.”

—JOHN SHELBY SPONG, author of Rescuing the Bible from Fundamentalism
