paperback • 80 pages • 6 x 9
Jesus, the Ordinary Man crosses the boundary of this world into an inner world of passion, compassion, and personal spiritual truth. The journey takes us back to the roots of Christianity and forward into an era of conscious awareness, with the author's unique mystical perspective guiding us along the way.
The book's primary message—communicated in a compelling mixture of verse and narrative—is to understand Jesus as an ordinary human being with the full range of human emotions, and by doing so, to also understand oneself as a sacred being with limitless potential.
Gary Presley in his Clarion Review wrote that the book "presents a thematic reinterpretation of the Christian message." He noted that "Full appreciation of Wiemer's central thesis requires a familiarity with recent scholarly research that rethinks the place of Mary in the Christian narrative. …Those who appreciate the revelations found in one person's spiritual quest, and who are willing to accept mystical insights unsupported by research, will find a passionate inquiry in the pages of Jesus, the Ordinary Man."
