In the Post: Mary Gordon 'Reading Jesus'
By Ron Charles
What an act of faith for novelist Mary Gordon to imagine that her new book, "Reading Jesus," has a prayer. She admits upfront that she's not a Bible scholar; in fact, she had "never actually read the full Gospel" until she began this audacious plan to record and publish her reflections on Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. She fears scriptural scholars will find her approach "naive to the point of irresponsibility," and she knows that conservative evangelicals who regard the Gospels as the literal expression of God's truth will scoff at the musings of this damnably liberal, feminist intellectual.
