From Publishers' Weekly:

Chopra brings a familiar calm, contemplative speaking style to the audio version of his latest title, which places the life and teachings of Jesus Christ in a broader spiritual context that synthesizes Eastern and Western concepts. Chopra begins his journey by making a case against traditional Christian notions that emphasize the institutional and dogmatic aspects of the Jesus identity. He then ushers in the "Third Jesus" as a figure who points individuals from all spiritual paths toward an ultimate "God consciousness." He devotes a large chunk of the recording to outlining key statements and precepts of Jesus that provide invitations for connecting with deeper truths through meditation. Perhaps because of the abridgment process, some of the most salient points in Chopra's conclusion--especially his outsider's take on why liberal voices within established Christianity invariably find themselves losing the internal debate with more conservative elements--seem a little rushed. Yet audiences with eclectic religious interests will welcome Chopra's perspective as an opportunity for building further dialogue. Simultaneous release with the Harmony hardcover. (Feb.)
