Diana Butler Bass

The Bob Cesca Show

You might know Diana as a regular on the John Fugelsang Show on SiriusXM, but she's also a speaker, scholar, and authority on American religion and culture. She's the author of eleven books, including her latest called FREEING JESUS, a bold exploration beyond the narrow confines surrounding the image of Jesus. Ultimately, it's an invitation to leave the Jesus wars behind and rediscover him in entirely new ways, as a teacher rather than a wrathful savior.

Freeing Jesus with Diana Butler Bass

The Soul of the Nation with Jim Wallis

Award-winning author and preacher, Diana Butler Bass speaks with Rev. Jim Wallis about her latest book Freeing Jesus. Diana shares how her experience of Jesus has changed over the years and how the Christian that is she is today is much different than she was before.And according to Bass, many people are eager to experience Jesus in a new way. “I often hear people who tell me ‘Oh, I’m no longer a Christian.’ ‘I just can’t be a Christian anymore,’ ‘I just can’t do church any longer, it’s just so hypocritical,’” says Bass. “But they almost always say, as a follow up to that, but I still love Jesus and I still want to follow Jesus.”
