Brendan Butler’s search for the historical, human Jesus of Nazareth has led to the writing of this book. In it, Jesus of Nazareth is presented in a human way as he faced very decisive Gospel events of his life.
“The aim of this book is to renew a conversation about the humanity of the historical Jesus of Nazareth within our contemporary society.”
“For the first time in two thousand years this is the inside story of the life and death of Jesus of Nazareth as told by himself. A brilliant idea executed with finesse by Brendan Butler. This is a page-turning book which will truly change your understanding and appreciation of Christianity.”
John Cooney, Historian and Religious Affairs Journalist
“My Story by Jesus of Nazareth is by Brendan Butler, an influential lay theologian, with years of experience as a teacher and campaigner for social justice. It is deceptively simple but, in the best sense of the word, is delightfully shocking. If you think the story of Jesus is old hat, take an hour to read this book and change your life forever for the better.”
Fr Brian Darcy, The Sunday World
“Every generation needs to look intently at the story it has inherited about one of history’s most influential characters, Jesus of Nazareth. He is the subject of countless books, articles, poems, paintings, sculptures, music and of course speculation. Brendan Butler speculates here in order to open up an accessible debate on the relevance of Christ to contemporary debates. He makes an interesting case for retrieving Jesus from vested interests and layers of obscuring dust.”
Dr. Mary McAleese, Past President of Ireland.
“An ambitious new book written by Malahide author Brendan Butler gives a fresh perspective on the story of Jesus Christ by offering its own unique interpretation of ‘the greatest story ever told.”
Ken Phelan, Fingal Independent
