Renowned biographer and novelist Jay Parini's The Way of Jesus is a book for progressive Christians and spiritual seekers who struggle, as Parini does, with some of the basic questions about human existence: its limits and sadness, and its possibilities for awareness and understanding.

Part guide to Christian living, part spiritual autobiography, The Way of Jesus is Jay Parini's exploration of what Jesus really meant, his effort to put love first and foremost in our daily lives. A lifelong Christian who has at times wavered in his belief, Parini recounts his own efforts to follow Jesus's example, examines the contours of Christian thinking, and describes the solace and structure one can find in the rhythms of the Church calendar. Parini's refreshingly non-dogmatic approach to Christian thinking incorporates teachings from other religions as well as poets who have helped Parini along his path to understanding.
