About This Book
Over the fifteen years that Harvey Cox taught his Harvard undergraduate class
Jesus and the Moral Life, the course grew so popular that the lectures had to be
taught in a theater usually reserved for rock concerts. The overwhelming
response was a clear signal of the hunger for guidance in today's confusing
world, where moral guidelines seem to shift daily. How can we ask today "What
Would Jesus Do?," when Jesus never had to cope with an unintended pregnancy, or
confront a teenage daughter about her drug use, or decide whether to put an
ailing parent in a retirement home?
In his new book, Cox brings the moral wisdom of Rabbi Jesus into the twenty-first century by way of the questions, arguments, responses, and doubts of centuries of rabbinic and Christian theological exploration, as well as the voices of the thousands of Harvard students who attended his course over the years. Cox shows how we can extrapolate from Jesus' parables and bridge the gap between the ancient and modern worlds. As an example, he recalls his experience while locked in a southern jail during the civil rights movement, when the song "We Shall Overcome" rang from nearby cells. The message he takes is from the story of the Resurrection: transcendent hope rising from the depths of injustice.
When Jesus Came to Harvard is not another look at the "historical Jesus," but it considers Jesus' contemporary significance by concentrating on the stories he told and those told about him. For youth and adults, Christian and non-Christian, When Jesus Came to Harvard is urgently relevant.
