While I would not be in sympathy with all of the viewpoints expressed in this book, it offers some profound meditations on the meaning of Jesus that are worth reflecting on. ( )

Who is Jesus? A marginal Jew? A Mediterranean Jewish peasant? A liberator and healer? The Second Person of the Blessed Trinity?For Father Freeman, the question of who Jesus is can illuminate our deepest questions of meaning and identity: "The clarity and freedom of our self-knowledge determines how clearly we can see Jesus in the Spirit."In this beautifully written and thoughtful book, Father Freeman shows how Jesus, as "the guru within," can only be seen in the light of self-knowledge— and thus not with mortal eyes but with spiritual vision.

It is a personal exploration of faith, and will be welcomed both by practising Christians and by those who though they may have left the churches still have many unanswered questions about who Jesus is - at least for them" -- www.amazon.com… (more)
