Product description

In his classic work, Jesus before Christianity, Albert Nolan stressed the political context of Jesus' mission and his concern for social justice and liberation. Now, thirty years later, Nolan's long-awaited sequel focuses on the spirituality of Jesus and its relevance for today. Beginning with a trenchant examination of the signs of the times - the hunger for spirituality, the crisis of individualism, ecological breakdown, the global divide between rich and poor, and a new understanding of our expanding universe - Nolan proceeds to describe the elements of Jesus' spirituality: a way of healing and 'radical freedom' that combined prophecy and mysticism. Applying that spirituality to our daily lives, he shows how these lessons might promote a greater communion with God, with ourselves, with other human beings and with the universe.
