Description
The National Book Award–winning author of An American Requiem and Constantine's Sword, James Carroll here gives us an exploration of transcendent faith in modern times. What can we believe about Jesus Christ—and how can we believe in him at all—in light of the Holocaust and other atrocities of the 20th century, and the drift from religion that followed? Carroll traces centuries of religious history and theology to face this core challenge to modern faith and to rescue it for the secular age. He considers seriously the challenges of science and contemporary philosophy and secularism, and retrieves the power of Jesus both as an answer to humanity's innate longing for transcendence and as a figure of profound ordinariness. To Carroll, Christ's simple life, and his call to imitate him, all suggest an answer to the question "What is the future of Jesus Christ?"

"Written in the brisk, argumentative style that has won James Carroll a broad popular readership, Christ Actually avoids the interminable maundering of academic prose, even as its extensive footnotes indicate attention to advanced, if radical, scholarship. Conservative Christians may well be shocked and annoyed at Carroll's configuration of Jesus. Nevertheless, for its pushback against the boundaries of conventional interpretations and, above all, for its passionate presentation of the sinfulness of Christian anti-Semitism, his book deserves serious attention."—Commonweal Magazine
