Our human consciousness and individuality -- and our potential for freedom of choice -- is possible because we have a physical body, separate from the spiritual realm. But for human beings to continue to develop, we need to reconnect to the divine world.

The incarnation, death and resurrection of Christ is what makes this reconnection possible. This profound book, a collection of lectures by Christian Community priest Michael Kientzler, discusses this central mystery of Christianity. He explores the nature of resurrection, and how it ultimately leads to human redemption or salvation.

This is a thoughtful, insightful book for those interested in spiritual and inner development.

'The author portrays the three aspects of the self and their functions in a vivid and lively manner[...] The narratives of the birth of Jesus given by Matthew and Luke is looked at with a fresh eye and originality. It is a joy to find these questions addressed in a straightforward, original and lively manner[...]. It makes a valuable contribution to these matters, demonstrating how taking a comprehensive view of the subject gives enhanced credence to its separate parts[...] Down-to-earth yet profound.'

'An inspiring work and would be a helpful book for those coming new to Christology as well as for others welcoming clarification and research into Christ's "reappearance", thus deepening their understanding.'
-- Anthroposophical Society in Great Britain
