This is a second and revised edition of John Hick's much discussed book first published twelve years ago. He claims that Jesus himself did not teach what was to become the orthodox understanding of him; that the dogma that he had both a divine and a human nature is incoherent and unintelligible; that divine incarnation is a metaphorical idea; that its literal construal makes Christianity the only religion to have been founded by a God in person, and thus uniquely superior to all others, a belief which has done so much harm in the world; that instead Christians should take Jesus as the one who has made God real to us and challenged us to live in God's presence. The new material now added shows how two major contemporary theologians, one Anglican and the other Catholic, face these problems and arrive at many but not all the same conclusions.
