Saving Jesus Redux

savingjesusA “Living the Questions” Study at The Fountains 

Ever feel like Jesus has been kidnapped by the Christian Right and discarded by the Secular Left? Saving Jesus Redux is total revision of Living the Question’s popular 12-session DVD-based small group exploration of a credible Jesus for the third millennium. New contributors including Brian McLaren, Diana Butler Bass, and Robin Meyers join Marcus Borg, Walter Brueggemann, John Dominic Crossan, Matthew Fox, Amy-Jill Levine, and a host of others for a conversation around the relevance of Jesus for today.

The aim of the LtQ studies are to enhance religious literacy by exposing lay people to what has been taught in seminaries and Bible colleges for generations but that clergy either avoid or are downright afraid of sharing from the pulpit or in Bible studies. If you have a suspicion that what you’ve grown up learning in church is not the whole story, then “Saving Jesus” is for you. Facilitated by series co-creator, Pastor David Felten, “Saving Jesus” discussions introduce participants to ways of thinking about Jesus in ways that make sense in the 21st century.

Classes will be on Wednesday mornings at 10am at The Fountains. Suggested tuition for this twelve (12) week series is $20. Those who register ahead (call 480.837.7627) will receive a participant guide via email so they can prepare for the first session. The basic format for each two-hour session includes conversation around the readings, a 30-minute video segment and guided discussion.

Don’t miss out on your chance to be a part of a series that is now in use by over 6,000 churches around the globe (and whose ads the legal department at Sports Illustrated rejected as being “too jarring.” True story.)  A video trailer of the series can be seen here (or click on the YouTube image below).
