Whitley Strieber is a literary legend, and Jesus: A New Vision is the most provocative book of his career. As the author of such influential books as Warday, Nature’s End, Communion, and Superstorm, he ranks among the cultural forces of our time.

Jesus: A New Vision is at once a magisterial work of scholarship and a completely new approach to the meaning and message of Jesus. It comes at a time when the Western world is divided between a declining number of believers in Christian doctrine and an ever-increasing number of people who feel that Jesus was nothing more than a religious zealot who was executed for the crime of sedition.

What if neither of these approaches is right? What if Jesus really did perform miracles, including the resurrection, but that this says not that he was a deity, but that he was exercising human powers which are buried within us all and which we do not suspect are there?

By exploring the life of Jesus and his teachings in an entirely new way, Jesus: A New Vision sheds fresh light on the meaning and power of his parables, explores the mysteries of the gospels of Thomas and Mary with fresh insight, and explains why, as Strieber puts it, he “committed suicide by crucifixion”.

It also addresses the questions that continue to surround the Shroud of Turin, exploring both the science that concluded that it was a medieval forgery and the more recent studies that have shown it to be something very different.

It explores what happened after Jesus’s death that led to the ultra-violence that destroyed the entire polytheistic culture of the Roman Empire and explains why this greatest of all human revolutions happened, relating it to the pandemics and uncontrollable migrations that resulted from a climate change event that began around AD 150 and led to extraordinary disruptions that the Romans, knowing nothing of solar variability, blamed on their gods.

In its sweep and its drama, there has never been another book like Jesus: A New Vision.

Comments

Many thanks for this! I looked around but couldn't find the accompanying book. Anybody have this in text format, too?

I can probably request one elsewhere and get a copy. It's pretty interesting.

Thanks for uploading. I like the audio books.

Having looked into it I have to say that "A New World" is better. But it is an interesting POV.
About audiobooks vs texts, I guess I am the opposite of y'all: I think audiobooks are way too slow, never get to the point at a speed that is convenient for me, and worst of all, I just lose interest and my mind wanders. I watch Jordan Peterson when I exercise and even then my mind wanders, though I can bring it back.
Still, I have good memories of painting my house back in Canada and listening to Graham Hancock podcasts when he was then promoting his book Supernatural. Then again, maybe it was the paint fumes that got me high. Who knows.

I also enjoy drawing and having the audio play in the background. But for that you need time which I never seem to have enough

To each their own!

Yeah, A New World is pretty good. I am making my way through this one as well. A chapter at a time with the audiobook. My mind wanders a lot anyways, but I tend to focus better with audiobooks as my attention span has a harder time concentrating on sustained reading. But there are plenty of books that are only available in physical or ebook format, so I have to force myself to focus more with those ones. I just got a new biography ebook on the psychiatrist John Mack. It just came out and I will probably upload it here another time in the near future...
