Who is Jesus Christ? People have been asking this question for 2000 years. The search for the answer begins with the four Gospels, but how are they to be understood? Sunday after Sunday, Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn, one of the leading candidates in the recent papal election, explains the Gospel in understandable words. By following the Gospel of Matthew over the course of a year, there emerges a comprehensive picture of Jesus presented in this book. Includes beautiful illustrations from various epochs of Christian art history.
“Cardinal Schoenborn convincingly brings home the truth and power of the Gospel image of Jesus. If you have lost touch with Christ, you will find him again. Disciples of Christ will discover new strength, conviction, and joy in this fresh expression of the reality of your Jesus and mine.” Fr. Benedict Groeschel, C.F.R., Author, A Drama of Reform
