In this urgently relevant, wholly enlightening discussion of modern moral decisions, the Harvard theology professor Harvey Cox considers the significance of Jesus and his teachings today. As he did in his undergraduate class Jesus and the Moral Life--a course that grew so popular that the lectures were held in a theater often used for rock concerts--Cox examines contemporary dilemmas in the light of lessons gleaned from the Gospels. Invigorating and incisive, this book encourages an intellectual approach to faith and inspires a clear way of thinking about moral choices for all of us.

He is the Thomas Professor of Divinity at Harvard University & the author of the groundbreaking The Secular City. His book The Seduction of the Spirit was nominated for a National Book Award. He writes & lectures widely on issues of religion & culture. He is married and lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
