Christ Actually : Reimagining Faith in the Modern Age
by James Carroll




Overview -
An exploration of transcendent faith in modern times--from the author of the New York Times-bestselling Constantine's Sword

What can we believe about--and how can we believe in--Jesus Christ in light of the Holocaust and other atrocities of the twentieth century and the drift from religion that followed? In this urgent and provocative work, award-winning author James Carroll traces centuries of religious history and theology to face this core challenge to modern faith and to rescue it for the secular age.

Far from another book about the "historical Jesus," Christ Actually takes the challenges of science and contemporary philosophy, of secularism, seriously. Carroll retrieves the power of Jesus both as an answer to humanity's perennial longing for transcendence and as a figure of profound ordinariness--his simple life, and his call to imitate him, all suggest an answer to the question "What is the future of Jesus Christ?" This book points the way.
