malcklm Dec 04, Erik marked it as to-read Shelves: A high mountain, especially at dawn, offers a greater sense of isolation than even the desert of the high seas, and so is a favorite place for such withdrawals. What mind has conceived a discourse, or tongue spoken it, which conveys even to a minute degree the light they shine before men?

He is credited with popularising Mother Teresa and in his later years became a Catholic. And he denied him, saying, Woman, I know him not. If you can find a used copy somewhere, buy it! I was thirsty, and you gave me drink.
Muggeridge has a deep dissatisfaction for prevailing moral values and shows precisely how and why they go contrary to who Jesus was and is. Lists with This Book. A Life of Christ. It is basically an autobiography and his thoughts on the Christian faith. A lifetime at the task but serves to make it seem the more impossible; truth in words at best attaining only meaning, beauty only elegance, and strength no more than shock. Taken separately, these chapters don’t seem to form a picture of a ‘rediscovered Jesus’.
His explication of the parables didn’t any new ideas and much of the rest of the book was dated. Muggeridge is against abortion, population control and many different forms of liberalism. So he went away and wept bitterly.

His opposition to birth control led to his controversial resignation as Rector of Edinburgh University. It seems so apropos that he came to know Christ through the wonders of Our Creator’s world and man’s struggle to know, love and serve God.
Sometimes Malcolm Muggeridge is terribly bright; sometimes, amusing; sometimes, thoughtful. This work covers his thoughts on the Christian religion.
Another incident described in the Gospels, which Jesus particularly asked the three disciples who were present at it not to mention to anyone, at least until after his death and Resurrection, was what is called ‘the Transfiguration’. Feb 19, Nathaniel rated it liked it. However, I find Muggeridge easier to understand and follow than Chesterton–could just be me. The three disciples were Peter, James and John, and the incident occurred some eight days after the conversation at Caesarea Philippi.

Jan 05, Guy Parker rated it really liked it. Because it is verbose,and very British, an audio book of this is an excellent way of experiencing it. Again the denial, this time accompanied with shouts and curses; the resort of all of us when we succumb to cowardice and panic.
