“I quote Jesus because I consider Him to still be the spiritual authority of the Western World, whether we choose to follow Him or not. He is always spot-on at the deeper levels and when we understand Him in His own explosive context. One does not even have to believe in His divinity to realize that Jesus is seeing at a much higher , deeper, wider and lower level than most of us. My quoting Jesus is the only way some listeners will trust me, for others it gives a reason to mistrust me, but I have to take both risks because if I used His words and ideas as my own words and ideas I would be dishonest. I am attempting to re-present Him and His words and ideas because, not surprisingly, many of the findings of modern psychology, anthropology and all the behavioural sciences give us a new window and vocabulary into Jesus’ transcendental message” [Richard Rohr]
