SAN FRANCISCO – If we accept that God is real, why should we believe that he has personally revealed himself to mankind? Fr. Robert Spitzer S.J., Ph.D., shows how it’s reasonable to believe that the creator has revealed himself because God is completely intelligent and completely positive in his new book, GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD: Clues to Our Transcendent Destiny From the Revelation of Jesus.
Spitzer explores whether it’s rational to believe that God is unconditionally loving and, if so, whether it follows to believe that God would want to make a personal appearance to us in a perfect act of empathy. He reviews all of the world religions to see if there is one that presents such a God, which leads him to the extraordinary claim of Jesus Christ, who taught that God is an unconditionally loving Father.
Spitzer explores Jesus’ claims that He himself is also unconditionally loving, and that his mission is to give us that love through an act of complete self-sacrifice. He examines Christ’s claim to be the exclusive son of the Father, sent by God to save the world, and the one who possesses divine power and authority.
In GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD, Spitzer provides an in-depth examination of Jesus: His forgiveness of sinners, teachings, miracles, rising from the dead and gift of the Holy Spirit, which enables His disciples to perform miracles in His name and is present among us today.
“Fr. Spitzer leads us, step by step, as a true spiritual guide to a deeper understanding on our personal journey of faith to Jesus Christ,” says Cardinal Christoph Schönborn.
