In this innovative work Fr. William Barry shows why this need not be the case. "I believe that research on the historical Jesus need not be a threat but can be a spiritual resource for us Christians", he says. Drawing on the highly acclaimed work The Marginal Jew by John Meier, he helps us sift the evidence to discover what we can know with historical certainty about Jesus. But Barry leads us beyond the facts of history to an encounter with the risen Jesus, sharing both his own experience of prayer as well as the stories and accounts of other contemporary Christians who have come to know the risen Lord. He guides us in a prayerful dialogue that bridges the gap between the Jesus of history and the Jesus we experience in faith.
