Read&Download Christianity in a Nutshell by Leonardo Boff Online
For over fifty years and in more than sixty books, Leonardo Boff
has explored the mysteries of the Christian message. In this short work
he sets out to describe the essence of Christianity in language that is
accessible and meaningful within the contemporary worldview, including
the scientific understanding of evolution and the expanding cosmos. His
essential question: How does Christianity fit into the process of the
evolution of the universe which is at least 13.7 billion years old? What
does it intend to reveal? What message does it bring to human beings?
For believers, how does it reveal God and how is God revealed in it?
Boff starts with the intuition that all is Mystery and the
bearer of Mystery an inexhaustible source of love, that wishes to be
known. This Mystery is God known under a thousand names revealed in
Christianity as a communion of Divine Persons. He goes on to relate this
Mystery to the story of Jesus and the history of Christianity, which
takes part in the common mission of other religious and spiritual paths
to keep alive the sacred flame of the divine presence in each person, in
history, and in the entire cosmic process.
