“On the whole we don’t take Jesus seriously – whether we call ourselves Christian or not. We don’t love our enemies, turn the other cheek, forgive limitlessly, bless those who curse us, share with the poor or put all our trust and hope in God.”
Fr. Albert Nolan, O.P. begins his book, Jesus Today, with these challenging observations. He further asserts that in this day and age, we need to take Jesus seriously more than ever. In this faithfully profound book, Nolan offers readers insights into the signs of our times. He describes Jesus’ spirituality, as revealed through the Gospels. He then suggests practices that can help persons in their process of spiritual growth and transformation – a process that requires integrating our contemporary challenges with Jesus’ spiritual values and leads us into oneness with Jesus and others
