Christendom Professor John Janaro Publishes New Book

June 2, 2003

Professor John Janaro, Christendom alumnus and Chairman of the Theology Department, recently published The Created Person and the Mystery of God: The Significance of Religion in Human Life (Bloomington, IN: 1stBooks, 2003), 256 pp. This is Prof. Janaro’s second book; his first was, Fishers of Men: Apostles of the Modern Age.

The book addresses important issues in the philosophy of religion and Catholic apologetics. It presents and analyzes classical and contemporary arguments for the existence of God, the mystery of creation, the necessity of a vital relationship with God for human happiness, and the corresponding violence of secularist culture against the human person. The book also explores the foundations of Catholic apologetics by presenting the glorious, compelling, and inescapable claim of Jesus Christ, God incarnate, the Divine answer to man’s search for meaning and purpose in life.
