When Jesus Came to Harvard: Making Moral Choices Today

2/14/2005; 83 minutes

For fifteen years Harvey Cox taught a course called "Jesus and the Moral Life" to undergraduates at Harvard. The course was consistently ranked as one of the most popular, often enrolling over 1000 students a semester. The overwhelming response was a clear signal of the hunger for guidance in today's confusing world, where moral guidelines seem to shift daily. In his book, Cox translates the method and messages of the Rabbi of Nazareth into today's idiom. Cox shows how he extrapolates answers from Jesus' parables and bridges the gap between the ancient and modern worlds. Sponsored by the Walter H. Capps Center at UCSB. (#9343)
