The Good Galilean Lessons in Living from the Son of Man Himself, Alban Goodier
83 The Good Galilean Lessons in Living from the Son of Man Himself
Alban Goodier Sophia Inst Pr 2011-04-01 1928832601 / 9781928832607 Paperback New Paperback 
New; Jesus Christ, the Perfect Human. In all of history, only one man was truly good: the perfect man in whom no fault was found, who was greater than storytellers can imagine, more sublime than any human before or since. In these pages, the author considers those incidents in the Gospel that illuminate, in particular, the specifically human traits of Jesus- not to demonstrate that Jesus was truly man, but to show what it's possible for each of us to become and indeed, what we are all called to become. By following our LOrd's example of patience, humility, veracity, simplicity, tenderness, compassion, strength, vulnerability, joy, sorrow, and prayerfulness, we become more like God...but simultaneously more truly human. Jesus in the model of manhood. Human life as He lived it made the world a better place. With the help of the Lord, you, too can make the world a better place as you grow more like Jesus, and more truly human.
