Author: Roger Lenaers S.J.

Translated by Dan Farrelly

Born of a virgin, crucified under Pontius Pilate, died and was buried, and rose again on the third day – this, the Church’s conception of Jesus, is based on mystical and mythological thinking.

But Jesus is not a citizen of another world, he is not an alien who dwelt amongst us for a short time. He is no omniscient and almighty miracle worker. And he is not an only-begotten Son of God.

The author looks at the gospels from a modern angle. Was Jesus a person like us?  He investigates these issues conscientiously and opens up a new way in which the modern Christian, despite everything, can confidently be a believer.
