Description: Who is Jesus? "A marginal Jew"? "A Mediterranean Jewish peasant"? A liberator and healer? The Second Person of the Blessed Trinity? In his highly personal and provocative new book, Laurence Freeman writes: "As one of the very few individuals in human history who can be called by all peoples a universal teacher, Jesus is, at the very least, worth listening to. This book is about a modern approach to that perennial listening which is called faith".

This modern approach is deeply informed by Father Freeman's longstanding practice of meditation. For 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. If we remain unconscious, we will stay in a dreamlike state and fail to see what can only be known in the wakefulness of the Spirit. The Gospel accounts of the Resurrection appearances -- Mary of Magdala, the disciples on the road to Emmaus, doubting Thomas, the unbelieving or terrified apostles in the upper room -- illustrate how humanity's inherent inattentiveness and weak self-knowledge make it difficult to recognize Jesus". Father Freeman shows how, as the 'guru within, ' Jesus can only be seen in the light of self-knowledge -- and thus not with mortal eyes but with spiritual vision.
