Jesus Rediscovered | [Malcolm Muggeridge]

Jesus Rediscovered

In addition to being one of the most important literary figures of the 20-century, Malcolm Muggeridge is an authentic Christian mystic. Though openly admitting he is not a theologian, his life embodies a deep and wonderful communion with God. This work includes his thoughts and reflections upon the Christian religion. It represents, in his words, "a sustained effort of one aging, 20-century mind to give expression to a deep dissatisfaction with prevailing contemporary values and assumptions, and an abiding sense, ever more overwhelming in its intensity, that there is an alternative - an alternative that was first propounded 2,000 years ago near the Sea of Galilee, was fulfilled on the hill called Golgotha and in the events that followed and, despite all the villainies and ups-and-downs of history, has been the glory of 2,000 years of Christendom."

    "Muggeridge Rediscovered"

    Almost 40 years after first hearing that a former skeptic and iconoclast had become a follower of Christ, I ran across this book while searching for texts read by Frederick Davidson, one of my favorite narrators. This book is refreshing in its outlook, being a collection of essays, articles and interviews with Malcolm Muggeridge ("MM"). I was especially interested to learn about Simone Weil and other authors that he considered to be particularly adept at shedding light on the nature of God and His relationship with mankind. Although MM was not as orthodox in his theology as C.S. Lewis, he takes much of his inspiration from St. Augustine, St. Thomas and the Christian mystics. This is a book for a person who enjoys thinking about the meaning of existence and is unafraid of hearing what another soul found when he asked those questions.

    "Different but good"

    I loved this book. It's a bit different though - the author has some pretty unusual views on what being a Christian is, he's in the mystic camp for sure (which is just fine in my view). The book is a collation of speeches, essays and lectures, with some bits that were written to lay out a topic specifically for the book. The narrator has a very posh, old fashioned British accent and reads the work as if it was his own - I thought it was great, but if posh is not your scene it might not be that enjoyable - listen to a sample before you buy. Also, the author has some very strong opinions and these are often expounded a bit too far, and there is quite a bit of repetition on some topics.
    Great listen overall

    "Initially compelling..."

    After outlining Muggeridges' excellent insight into Christianity and its relevance to the human condition in the 20th century, the collection descends into repetitive themes and excerpts from MM's published material that don't make for a compelling listen from start to finish, as for a long drive. To pick it up and listen to a chapter now and then might be acceptable. MM has ideas worth hearing, and supports the Christian faith with a measure of skepticism that will appeal to thinking Christians.

    "Great Book"

    Loved the book, makes you think. Muggeridge certainly wasnt your run of the mill Christian. Very interesting and leaves you with much to think about.
