Lessons in living from Jesus Christ

Our Faith isn't based on an idea or an accumulation of traditions.

It's based on a man.

For a few brief decades, that man walked among us, spoke with us, and shared our food and lodgings.

He encouraged the weak, consoled the sorrowing, and taught us to pray.

He told us of the inner life of God — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit — and also revealed to us (by His example) much about our lives and how they should be lived.

Knowing this man is essential to our salvation.

That's why Archbishop Alban Goodier wrote The Good Galilean.


In these pages, you'll consider those incidents in the Gospel that illuminate the human traits of Jesus — not to demonstrate that Jesus was truly man, but to show that it's possible for each of us to become what we are supposed to be.

By following our Lord's example of patience, humility, veracity, simplicity, tenderness, compassion, strength, vulnerability, joy, sorrow, and prayerfulness, we become more like God . . . and simultaneously more truly human.

Jesus is the model of manhood, and human life as He lived it made the world a better place.

With the help of our Lord and under the wise guidance of Archbishop Goodier, you too can make the world a better place as you grow more like Jesus and more truly human.

Cardinal Giacomo Biffi, Archbishop Emeritus of Bologna, Italy and close friend of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, wrote The Man Christ Jesus to give us an intimate portrait of Jesus as we meet him in the Gospels.

Only by experiencing a close, personal encounter with Jesus in His full humanity — just as His first disciples did — can we develop a true and salvific belief in the Christ of Faith.

In meticulously following the Gospel data, Cardinal Biffi reveals . . . 
  • A man of unsurpassed physical strength, vigor, handsomeness, and charisma.
  • A true friend who exhibits selflessness and humility in all His dealings.
  • A brilliant and complex mind who teaches simple people with simple words.
  • A pious Jew, and a perfectly prayerful and obedient son of the Father.
  • A "politically incorrect" preacher whose message leaves no one unchallenged.
  • An "unsolvable enigma of history" that the world, without the gift of faith, will never understand.
"When we are brought face-to-face with the unique mystery of the man Christ Jesus," writes Biffi, "either we reject Him, or we fall on our knees before Him."

There is no middle way.

Let these pages reveal to you the face of Christ, and bring you more readily and lovingly to your knees.
