    Highly Recommended--a must read!

    The persons chosen by Father Denis to give impressions of Jesus astounded me. My expectation was the usual: Judas, the Samaritan Woman, Martha. The surprise came in the neighbor of Jesus, the child, the secret agent and a disillusioned disciple. Linked to the personalities were the pictures. They are black and white photographs, clearly not from the first century, but identifiable to this generation. Not only do the words link the Gospel to the present, but the photos are contemporary. How truly marvelous of Denis to name all, the good, the bad and the ugly, when giving impressions of Jesus. In my need to tidy up the Gospel, it never occurred to me to bring in the negative voices, without evaluation, that were surely screaming aloud while Jesus lived. My preference would be to dismiss them, unlike both Jesus and Denis. Father Denis knows both the honorable and the detestable in humanity, just as Jesus did. Denis finds those who appear insignificant persons from the Gospel to inform us about Jesus. When speaking from the perspective of a neighbor of Jesus, Denis speaks of someone not even mentioned in the Gospels. However, Jesus must have had neighbors. In fabricating personalities, the words of the Gospel leap off the page and become real. Jesus is no longer two dimensional. He becomes like one of us. Jesus is someone with feelings; someone who knows the depth of the human experience, but is not weighed down by it. Despite those that are slow to believe, who never believe, whose faith is shaken, who only want his death, Jesus remains "Love." Jesus is patient, is kind, is forgiving. Jesus takes us where we are and if we let him, shows himself in the "breaking of the bread."
