In this article the writer discusses that 'Living Jesus: Learning the Heart of the Gospel' offers a deeply personal insight into approaching the meaning of Jesus Christ within an admirably scholastic framework. The writer notes that the author's primary goal and objective in writing 'Living Jesus' may be to stimulate new modes of thinking about Gospel and to renew or initiate appreciation of the resurrected, living, omnipresent Jesus Christ. The writer concludes that the title of 'Living Jesus' offers readers a double-meaning to contemplate. The writer explains that Jesus is at once living, fully alive and omnipresent and that the title also refers to an active incorporation of Christianity into one's personal life: living Jesus, living as a Christian.
