Publisher's Description

For the first time in nearly 50 years, a casual yet informative method to learn about John the Baptist…

"Why did each of the four evangelists make John the gateway to the Gospel, the first preacher of Good News? What were the reasons for the early Church's intense interest in a desert hermit whose public ministry lasted two years or less? Why in early Christian tradition was John the Baptist accorded an exalted religious stature, almost equal to that of Mary? The irony is that most modern scholarship on John has missed the true sources of his religious significance…in his links to Christ and to the very earliest beginnings of the Christian religion."—from the Introduction

Alexander Burke pieces together the mystery of this well-known disciple of Jesus one chapter at a time, covering John's preaching, arrest and execution, his role in Eastern and Western Christian Tradition, and the many paradoxes surrounding him.

An excellent resource for group or individual study, John the Baptist offers questions for reflection at the end of each chapter.

Endorsements

Burke's book will stimulate interest in, and renewed devotion to, John the Baptist and, one hopes, even further research into the person and heritage of this glorious saint.? —Father Joseph T. Lienhard, S.J., professor of theology, managing editor, Traditio, Fordham University
Burke argues convincingly that John the Baptist is our guide to Christ and the master of the spiritual life. John the Baptist makes an excellent choice for Scripture study groups, prayer groups, faith-based reading clubs and personal reflection. —Susan M. Timoney, S.T.D., Education Parish Service Network
