A LIFE OF JESUS :: 1978 HB w/ DJ
A LIFE OF JESUS :: 1978 HB w/ DJ
  • Hardback book with Dust Jacket by Shusaku Endo
  • Translated from the Japanese by Richard A. Schuchert, S.J.
  • Copyright © 1973 by Shusaku Endo
  • English translation copyright © 1978 by Richard A. Schuchert

" A Life of Jesus is a simple and powerful retelling of the Gospel accounts of Jesus Christ.
It is not a biography, since a biography in the modern sense would be impossible to write.
Neither is it a fictionalized account of Jesus' life.
Although he feels free to speculate about the underlying motives of Jesus and his disciples,
Shusaku Endo affirms nothing beyond what the Gospels tell us.

Endo, a noted Japanese novelist, wrote this story for his non-Christian countrymen in an effort to explain who Jesus was and what he stood for. The resulting book - which has enjoyed enormous success in Japan - speaks just as powerfully to readers in Western countries, even to life-long Christians. Endo's Jesus will not be limited to Japan because Jesus himself escapes the limits of all cultures and languages. It is a timeless story, as freshly provocative to us as it was to hearers in New testament times.

Because his audience was mostly non-Christian, Endo is particularly sensitive to the manner in which the words of Jesus fell on the ears of his first listeners. Their reaction to him, their puzzlement, their affection, and their eventual abandonment of him, are vividly and compassionately recounted.

According to Endo, Jesus "was the man who could accomplish nothing, the man who possessed no power ..... He was thin, he wasn't much. One thing about him however - he was never known to desert other people if they had trouble. When women were in tears, he stayed by their side. When old folks were lonely, he sat with them quietly. It was nothing miraculous, but the sunken eyes overflowed with love more profound than a miracle. And regarding those who deserted him, those who betrayed him, not a word of resentment came to his lips ....

"That's the whole life of Jesus.
It stands out clean and simple, like a single Chinese ideograph brushed on a blank sheet of paper.
It was so clean and simple that no one could produce its like. "
