Dramatic portraits of remarkable contemporary Christians exemplify the many ways in which the teachings of Jesus continue through his followers. Is Jesus' promise to live on through his believers true? Can we find the living Christ in today's complicated, uneasy world? Harold Fickett explores these questions in THE LIVING CHRIST, a journey throughout the world in search of individual Christians whose daily lives reflect different aspects of the resurrected Christ. Fickett profiles a woman who rescues girls from prostitution in Thailand, a "trucker chaplain" in South Carolina, a visionary living on the California coast, an American priest who conducts a healing ministry in Mexico City, the martyrs of Iran, and others who carry out the work of Christ in difficult, sometimes desperate circumstances. Written with narrative flair and offering surprising theological insights and meditations, these real-life stories stimulate new and enlightening perspectives on Jesus' the Liberator, Wayfarer, Contemplative, Healer, and Martyr. Like the writings of Thomas Merton, Henri Nouwen, and Philip Yancey, THE LIVING CHRIST will appeal to all who seek a deeper spirituality.
