Item Description...
Who is Jesus? A marginal Jew? A Mediterranean Jewish peasant? A liberator and healer? The Second Person of the Blessed Trinity? For Father Freeman, the question of who Jesus is can illuminate our deepest questions of meaning and identity: "The clarity and freedom of our self-knowledge determines how clearly we can see Jesus in the Spirit" In this beautifully written and thoughtful book, Father Freeman shows how Jesus, as "the guru within" can only be seen in the light of self-knowledge and thus not with mortal eyes but with spiritual vision.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Treasure Trove Of Spiritual Insight  Apr 18, 2001
Freeman is a Benedictine monk and the successor of John Main as the spiritual guide of The World Community for Christian Meditation. The question of Jesus, Who do you say that I am, can be answered, Freeman suggests, only as we grow in self-awareness, and the answer to that question will in turn lead us to greater self-knowledge. A friendship of mutual recognition and self-revelation between Jesus and us grows step by step as we see Jesus in the gospels, in a new way of looking at God and God's forgiveness, in the sometimes unlikely guise of the church, in the realm of the Spirit, in the labyrinthine ways of meditation. That is the briefest outline; but there is much more in this book than can be summarized here. It is a treasure almost too densely packed with ideas to be fully grasped at a single reading. Freeman is a writer of very broad knowledge, deep insight, and spiritual wisdom; and he knows well and draws upon eastern religions to very good effect. Definitely worth a read.
Jesus the Teacher Within  Mar 11, 2001
Spiritual seekers looking for a comprehensive and in-depth study of Jesus, one that leads to an expansion of consciousness, will want to read this book. It inspires, informs and addreses the human heart at the depth of its longing. By exploring the question posed by Jesus: "And you, who do you say I am?" (MT 16:15) Freeman takes the reader on a psychological and spiritual journey into their own true nature. Like one sitting at the loom of experience Freeman weaves together insights from other spiritual traditions, as well as references from literature and his own life, that give the reader a fresh and new understanding of the person of Jesus. The book is grounded in solid Christian theology yet anticipates the reader of the 21st century. It is a book for those who are spiriually hungry and for those who want to move beyond spiritual and intellectual patterns of belief that no longer fit or limit a deeper experience of faith.
Jesus, the Teacher Within - Freeman  Feb 9, 2001
On the first page of his book, "Jesus, the Teacher Within," Father Freeman recounts the gospel's account of the last days of Jesus. Faced with the apostles' narrative of his accusers'depictions of him, Jesus asks, "And, who is it you say I am?" Freeman's belief is that in order to answer this question, the apostles and today's Christians must look into their hearts and first determine who they are and how their identities relate to Jesus as savior, messiah, man and god.

Father Freeman is a follower of the teaching of John Main. John Main was a Benedictine monk who taught the path to true spirituality and compassion should include meditiation, contemplative prayer. John Main and Father Freeman's view of Christianity is very receptive to Eastern thought, particularly, Buddhism. In fact, the Dalai Lama writes the Introduction to this book.

This is an exceptionally well reasoned, important and artistic book.
