Franz  Alt - The 100 Most Important Words of Jesus


Reading Jesus anew and understanding him better

In his latest book, Franz Alt has opened the treasure trove of the Gospels, in compact form and focusing on the most important things Jesus of Nazareth said. He does this with great love of the material at hand and with remarkable precision. In the process he sheds new light on the Lord's Prayer, the Sermon on the Mount and Christ's words on the cross, doing away with inaccuracies of translation and later embellishments.

The result is surprising, sometimes irritating but always fresh – a little like the Michelangelo frescoes in the Sistine Chapel after their restoration. If you would like to rediscover Jesus of Nazareth in the original Aramaic, this is where you will find what you are looking for – and you will have a new experience of the present-day power of the Biblical message.
