A Scandalous Jesus -- Peter Gomes talks to Stephen Colbert

Peter Gomes appears on Stephen Colbert's show to plug his new book on Jesus -- The Scandalous Gospel of Jesus (HarperOne, 2008).

Gomes tells us that the gospel is scandalous because churches are agents of conservatism and the status quo, but Jesus upsets the status quo. Enjoy the video!!
