Description

Christianity stands at a turning point. Myths, magic, and miracles raise more questions than answers, driving thinking people away from the church. Without a logical foundation for the modern age, the religion will wither and die. From this controversial starting point, Dermot J. Keary proposes a new interpretation of the life of Jesus of Nazareth, stripping away exaggerated or fictional claims of miracles in favor of Christ's still-relevant message. Building on his revealing and controversial work "Jesus for the Common Man," Keary offers a more centrist version of Christianity for those who have a place for God and Jesus in their lives, but have little patience with outdated and unthinking faith. Many of Keary's assertions are commonly held among the clergy, but never make it to the pew. "Christianity without Magic, Myth, Miracle" aims to bring modern thinking to the average worshipper, engaging Christians in a new discourse about God, faith, and the future of the Church. We have grown beyond the need for magic as a keystone of faith. For those looking for a reconciliation between their faith and the rational mind, Keary's words will change how they think about a simple carpenter from Nazareth.show more
