Development of the True Identity of the Human Being in the Message of the Gospel of Luke About the book: • Already a few decades after Jesus, it had been forgotten that Christianity is a spiritual path on which the image of God, our deepest essence, which is threatened with suffocation under our false, egocentric nature, is again awakened to life.• Jesus himself lived this path as an example. Anchored in the divine forces, he brought the true self, the Kingdom of God, to appearance in the measure that he recognized and weakened the false self-the pharisaic self-righteousness and the demonic forces of the striving for power, honor, and possessions.• The disciples of Jesus followed this path in the powers of their master. All miracles, events, and sayings in the gospels are stations of a precisely structured inner development.• Those who read the Gospel of Luke with this perspective, experience a foretaste of the spiritual path of Jesus and his disciples, which can also become their path. About the author: • Dr. Konrad Dietzfelbinger (sociology and German studies) has been occupied for decades as a translator and author of religious and spiritual books. His scientific work has brought him in touch with manifold traditions of western humanity.• Raised in an especially religious environment, he already noticed as a child that under the Christian faith as he encountered it there, there had to be hidden a much deeper spiritual Christianity. One of his main concerns is to make this original Christianity visible again.• Those who go back to the roots of the gospels and thus free the path of Christianity from all leveling and encrustation will first recognize the place of this religion among the other world religions. They will experience that Christianity when rightly understood is especially for the Westerner the gate to the realization of the true self in the human being.
