Jesus in America : personal savior or cultural hero( Visual )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The United States is unique among modern industrial countries in its devotion to Jesus as personal savior and cultural hero. Two-thirds of adult Americans claim that Jesus is divine as well as a man who walked the earth in ancient Palestine. In his presentation, Dr. Fox will show how and why religious and secular Americans have ben so attached to Jesus for over four centuries. The 'new birth' Jesus preached has matched up nicely with the traditional secular American belief in new identities for individuals and new beginnings for the nation. The land of the self-made individual and the new order of the ages has found it quite natural to embrace the second baptism of the spirit. Dr. Fox wil use contemporary examples, such as 'What Would Jesus Do' (WWJD) armbands and films like Mel Gibson's Passion of the Christ to illustrate the dichotomous relationship he will explore"--- accompanying summaries. Throughout the presentation, questions are taken from students in the live audience, satellite audience and emails
