The author's skilled narration clarifies why he believes Jesus is the human face of God, an opposing view to modern theology that demythologizes Jesus in order to understand Him. Parini argues that when the mystery of Jesus is disregarded, it make Him little more than a good man instead of God in human form. Parini's voice takes on an edgy quality when he explores why we need to re-mythologize Jesus, which means to accept the mystery of Jesus on faith. With a rhythmic cadence, Parini guides listeners through Jesus's teachings and, ultimately, his death on the cross to position Him in a faith-based, historical context. In this way, salvation becomes a process instead of a one-time event. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2014]
