—American Academy of Religion
"One of the sharpest...accounts...of progressive evangelicalism."
—Los Angeles Review of Books
"One of the most important books I’ve read in years, Rescuing Jesus is a thoughtful, well-researched, and compelling page-turner that gives me hope for the future of Christianity...I’ll be recommending this book to anyone who asks me about the future of Christianity in America and I’ll be returning to it often myself for research, encouragement, and inspiration."
—Rachel Held Evans, author of Searching for Sunday: Loving, Leaving, and Finding the Church
