IN PRISM'S BOOK BAG: Editor's pick, Malcolm Muggeridge's JESUS REDISCOVERED is available online
Malcolm Muggeridge (1903-1990) was one of the great Christian thinkers of the last century, on par with British compatriots C.S. Lewis and G.K. Chesterton, yet so many people to whom I speak about him have never read his work. A worldly (and world-weary) journalist for many years, he met Christ in his 50s and was radically transformed. Fortunately for us, he spent the last several decades of his life documenting his conversion, his new found passion for Christ, and his deeply joyful and radical understanding of the Christian faith.
His classics include JESUS – THE MAN WHO LIVED and CHRIST AND THE MEDIA, as well as two excellent memoirs and many other writings. I was delighted to learn that one of his most important books is available free online: JESUS REDISCOVERED, in which he details his faith in a collection of essays: "There must have been a resurrection," he proclaims in a transcribed interview, "because Christ is alive now, two thousand years later. There is no question at all about that."
Wheaton College's Buswell Memorial Library website says, "This book is a superb introduction to Christ for the disaffected Christian who has rejected the pseudo-Jesus preferred by the institutional churches but can't let go of the real Jesus."
