"The class notes in this volume are meant for study group use. Their purpose is to help us understand the teachings of Jesus and apply them in our lives. They grew out of the conviction that Jesus had a challenging and liberating message that has been largely forgotten over the centuries, in the focus on belief in the person of Jesus and his final deeds. The purpose of these notes, then, is to allow his original teachings to do what they were intended to do: to come alive in the experience of his followers..."
