From the publisher

In The Godless Gospel, Julian Baggini challenges our assumptions about Jesus - and the Christian values he promotes - by focusing on his teachings in the Gospels. Stripping away the religious elements, Baggini asks how we should understand Jesus's attitude to the renunciation of the self, to politics or to sexuality, as expressed in Jesus's often-elusive words. An atheist from a Catholic background, Baggini grapples with Jesus's sometimes contradictory messages, and against his own scepticism, finds that Jesus's words amount to a purposeful and powerful philosophy, which has much to teach us today.
