About-

This book retells the narrative of Christ’s redemptive journey by looking at some of the Gospel’s underlying assumptions and showing how they are both reasonable and credible. For Christians, faith is not contrary to reason, but presupposes and even builds on it. This faith asks us to put aside whatever preconceptions we may have regarding the Gospel message and listen with an open heart to the way it speaks to the universal human condition. The seed of hope buried deep within the mythologies of old is nothing but a faint reflection of God’s dream for his creation. For Christians, this dream has entered the arena of history in the person of Jesus Christ, the New Adam, who sheds light on our human condition by “making all things new” (Rev 21:5).

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Dennis Billy retells the narrative of Jesus' redemptive journey in a simple, yet profound way. He helps us to discover the perennial impact the mystery of Jesus on our own life. I recommend this book especially for those who want to come to a deeper knowledge and love of Jesus, who is Savior and Lord."
--Donna Orsuto, Professor, Pontifical Gregorian University, Director, the Lay Centre at Foyer Unitas

WEBSITE:
"This book is a profound meditation on the heart of the Christian faith, the Incarnation. Beginning with creation and the fall, Billy leads us into mystery of Jesus, the Redeemer and the New Adam, who not only redeems us from sin but also elevates us to 'share in the divine nature' (2 Pet 1:4). Billy's love for Christ, the New Adam, and Mary, the New Eve, breathes through every page of this book."
Robert Fastiggi, Professor of Systematic Theology, Sacred Heart Major Seminary, Detroit, Michigan

"Billy gives readers clear guidance on a journey into the mystery of Jesus Christ as the 'New Adam' whose incarnation, suffering, death, resurrection, and ascension brought about a new creation and a new humanity. A spirit-expanding work that invites all to recognize and respond to God's invitation to transformation. Divinization is God's plan for us."
James A. Wallace, Director, San Alfonso Retreat House, Long Branch, New Jersey
