    One thought on “The Silence of Gethsemane”

    1. Reviewing this book is difficult What does one say about Christ Strangely I started reading this book during the Holy Week and it probably accounts for the deep impression it had on me Christ a learned rabbi, finds that there is an emptiness in him, and goes in search of St John the Baptist, the preacher in the wild, who has a tremendous impact on him and his teachings.What Christ learns is that whatever you do, the strength comes from within oneself, he is a conduit from God, never once does he [...]

    2. In this remarkable work, Michel asks whether it is possible to bring back the vital force of Jesus which was lost at the same moment that Christianity itself collapsed Although I began this book with trepidation, as I have read or become aware of so many jumping on bandwagons for their own purposes rather than a greater good for humanity, I quickly felt the deeper and richer purpose with which Michel Benoit has undertaken this work.In his Afterword he credits recent scholarship in a range of fie [...]

    3. Basically there are three kinds of novels novels where everything is made up e.g The Wonderful Wizard of Oz , historical novels where the author aims to be as accurate as possible and often goes to great lengths to research the topic under discussion e.g.Wolf Hall and then there are the novels that are based on an historical event but play fast and loose with the facts e.g Stephen King s 11 22 63 I mention this because on the cover of The Silence of Gethsemane is says, A Novel and I m not sure w [...]

    4. With a roaring New Age start, Michel Benoit starts off with Jesus in the Garden thinking like a Buddhist that he must have lived many prior lives but hoping his current one would be his last P 5 And this from a man who in his introduction said his non Scripture references would be true to his dedicated study of the ancient texts P 1 1 After the Last Supper, Michel pictures Jesus as fearing a death He only suspects and saying I m afraid P 1 9 The authors starts Chpt 2 by having God, The One Only [...]

    5. Perhaps a bit slow to begin with but certainly well worth persevering with, translated from the French by Christopher Moncrieff, overall I thought The Silence Of Gethsemane, a fictionalised account of the ministry of Jesus up until the time of his arrest in Gethsemane, as interesting as it was controversial.Written by former unordained Benedictine monk Michel Beno t, the thirty years spent researching and analysing certainly show in what is one of the most thought provoking books I m ever likely [...]

    6. The author claims that the novel is based on research but it is very clear that it has been written with an agenda in mind The author cannot accept the idea of Jesus being God so having that presupposition he has gone through the gospels, removed huge chunks because they do not match his ideal version, came up with the most weird explanations for the supernatural miracles of Jesus, literally distorted the facts Jesus did not choose the disciples They chose Him and created a false Jesus who is no [...]
