Jesus was a street preacher who taught through story and aphorism. Antedating the Gospels, these 105 sayings were recorded by his followers during and shortly after his lifetime. Through the immediacy of direct quotation, Guy Davenport and Benjamin Urrutia's bold translation shakes our preconceptions, reintroducing us to the West's greatest teacher, whose powerful words ring anew.
