Historian and radical religious scholar Uta Ranke-Heinemann tells the story of the Church's betrayal of women, its hierarchical struggles, and the dissolution of the real message of Jesus. Made to leave her teaching position as professor of Catholic theology at the University of Essen for denying the virgin birth, she has become an outspoken critic of an institution that has allegedly sought to censor her research and suppress her contributions. Through this book, she seeks to rid Christian faith of the inauthentic and apparently sexist cultural baggage that she claims hinders a true encounter with the revolutionary message of Jesus.
-Publisher

"Feminist, historian, and radical religious scholar Uta Ranke-Heinemann caused a media sensation and sent shock waves through the Catholic world with her first international bestseller. Here she continues her showdown with the Church. Ranke-Heinemann reveals that ecclesiastical Christianity took the very human revolutionary prophet Jesus and converted him into a mythical God, surrounding him with the kinds of legendary stories and superhuman features associated with the pagan gods of the time. These "fairy tales for the Kingdom" were changed from effective teaching stories into doctrines to which a paternalistic Church demanded absolute allegiance. In the course of her investigation, she examines all the fundamentals of Christian belief: Christmas, the miracles, Good Friday, Easter, the Ascension, and more." "Already a breakaway bestseller in Europe, Putting Away Childish Things challenges the basic assumptions of conventional Christianity and opens up a new vision of Christian faith, grounded in critical thinking, historical realism, and allegiance to Jesus' real message of freedom and hope."--BOOK JACKET.
