Summary:
This book is a compilation of research conducted by George Miller, founder or Ruskin Fl and Ruskin College. Ruskin, at times mislabeled as a socialist community, is better described as an "intentional community" where like minded people lived together for a common purpose: in this case a community bounded together for educational, intellectual and communitarian pursuits. Some of Dr. Miller's thinking involves ideas of Christian Socialism best expressed in his writings. Chief among them is "The New Order of Jesus." This work helps explain some of Miller's communitarian thinking, which formed -- at least in part -- his ideas for the community of Ruskin and Ruskin College. It is NOT a new translation of the New Testament. Rather it is a monograph that explores Millers beliefs that mistranslations of the Bible relied on mistranslations of certain words in the Greek language. Exploring these in detail, Miller describes a more worldly mission for Jesus without diminishing his role as a savior figure. In the Introduction, he explicit denies this is a work of theology. but rather one of sociological construct. His main thesis is that these mistranslations led to an incorrect understanding of Jesus' mission. By correcting these mistranslations one will be aided in applying Jesus' words and missions to social conditions that needed attention in turn of the century America.
