THE ONCE AND FUTURE JESUS Exploring the afterlife of Jesus in world cultures.
Editor: Gregory C. Jenks Publisher: Cambridge Scholars Publishing
This set of essays explores the impact of Jesus within and beyond Christianity, including his many ‘afterlives’ in literature and the arts, social justice and world religion. It traces both the impact of Jesus on his devotees as well as his legacy among people who claim no religion.
