Product Description

Who is the real Jesus? How can we experience the mystery, compelxity, and richness of his spirituality and teachings in our lives today? In this gently instructive and inspiring guide, Luke Timothy Johnson leads us to a deeper understanding and practice of classic Christian spirituality and faith. Translating his biblical scholarship into simple, elegant language, he offers a compelling and wise reflection on the real Jesus--not the reconstructed historical figure but the resurrected Christ, a living savior we can encounter every day.

Living Jesus elucidates the mystery of Jesus' resurrection and its central role in the Christian experience. It explores the diversity and fullness of the New Testament views of Christ, revealing how each book's perspective can deepen our understanding of Jesus. Profoundly insightful, Living Jesus offers valuable lessons on how we can accept the Gospels' powerful invitation to an authenic Christian spirituality.

    Charles Meadows
    Excellent and concise!! This is a book written as an answer to the debate about the historical Jesus, a subject written on extensively by conservatives and liberals alike. Johnson (a catholic and an ex-monk) definitely comes down on the conservative side, but he is very concerned to show that even with meticulous historical investigation, we can know only one side of Jesus. As he puts it, can we know one who is alive by using the means by which we learn about the dead? He uses the example of Hitler. If we attempted to paint a picture of Hitler using what he appeared to think about himself and what his closest advisers wrote about him (the same way the liberals attempt to define Jesus), we would end up with a very skewed, if not inaccurate picture! In any event, this book is very easy to read and is a must for any Vhristian interested in the study of Jesus.
