Is Jesus God?

Finding Our Faith

In the new millennium, the most central question is how to understand God and Jesus. This book is an invitation to Christians—and non-Christians—to challenge their inherited notions of how and why Jesus is to be thought of as divine.

For Morwood, Jesus is to be closely identified with god. Is Jesus God? Is an invitation to Christians—and non-Christians—to challenge their inherited notions of how and why Jesus is to be thought of as divine.

Morwood begins by rejecting what so many Christians have already rejected, the notion of inherited sin. What few realize, however, is that rejecting this teaching calls into question the nature and role of Jesus and salvation as it has been traditionally understood.

Is Jesus God? concludes with chapters on the implications of open discussion about Jesus for ministry, liturgy, and theology. Furthermore, to encourage use in adult faith formation, each chapter concludes with a set of discussion questions.

“A provocative, powerful and life-giving book! Michael Morwood is raising within his Roman Catholic context, the right and obvious questions that all Christians must face. In his response he provides fresh and perceptive possibilities for a modern and relevant faith.”
John Shelby Spong, 8th Bishop of Newark (Episcopal-USA)
