This book introduces the reader to a new – or rather very old – way of approaching the Holy Bible. By recognizing the New Testament as the repetition of the most fundamental Old Testament history, the author describes and tries to understand the message and mission of Jesus. In that way one can see the classic Catholic-Protestant controversy with new – or rather very old – eyes.
Jesus and His People is Piere Schiffer’s first book. In this book the author attempts to include all Christian churches and traditions within a single framework, while advocating a Christian unity. He writes from the conviction that choosing Jesus Christ is the only divine option for mankind and that following Him means embracing the ancient faith of the early Church.
