A powerful book. Muggeridge writes with tremendous passion and lucidity. This is an inspiring book because Muggeridge makes faith in Jesus so tangible and compelling. He is cynical and witty at times, but he is also extraordinarily faithful to his Lord and even to his Church. Muggeridge was a convert to Christianity, having been a communist earlier in his life.
The illustrations in the book are nice, if haphazard, but they do form a suitable complement to the text. You cannot finish this work wi

This excellent book comments on the life of Jesus, combining the gospels into one narrative and letting you join the author in the journey. I have so many sticky notes on pages or paragraphs I will want to read again.

Though I have read much of Muggeridge, this work may well be his best. Because books too often go out of print, I fear that many today may never know this remarkable intellect, lover of the Lord Jesus, and consummate wordsmith.

Muggeridge gives you much in all of his writings. This is just another of many books in which we "uncover" more insight into the personhood of Yahshua/Jesus.

Despite an occasional unwillingness to accept various facts the gospel writers offer simply as truth, Muggeridge grasps the central glory of Christ remarkably.

Thomas Malcolm Muggeridge was an English journalist, author, media personality, and satirist. During World War II, he was a soldier and a spy. He is credited with popularising Mother Teresa and in his later years became a Catholic.
“Earthly authority displays itself in giving orders, in magnificent apparel, in hordes of servitors, in sycophantic addresses; the authority of Jesus disposes of is, by contrast, spiritual, and expresses itself in serving, not being served, in seeking to be the least instead of the greatest, the last instead of the first, in finding wisdom in the innocence of children and truth in the foolishness of men rather than in those who pass for being sagacious and experienced in the world’s ways. When we want to adulate men, we say they are godlike; but when God became Man, it was in the lineaments of the least of men.” 2 likes
