"After studying sources as varied as the mystic novelist Carlos Castenada, the psychologist and philosopher William James and the Buddha, Borg concluded that there were two Jesuses. One was the 'pre-Easter Jesus, a powerful witness to the reality and character of God' and a radical cultural critic who preached the politics of compassion. The other was the 'post-Easter Jesus, a living spiritual reality, God with a human face.' Taken together, says Borg, these two Jesuses 'made it possible for me to be a Christian again.'"Borg, Marcus J. is the author of 'Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time The Historical Jesus & the Heart of Contemporary Faith', published 1995 under ISBN 9780060609177 and ISBN 0060609176.
