9780962050770: Jesus and the Message of Love

What possible use can we have for one more book about Jesus?

Why did Ronald D. Pasquariello write Jesus and the Message of Love?

Because he could find no other books written about what he considered Jesus’ primary saying about love. He checked out Books in Print and the large libraries and found no such books. Surprisingly for many, Pasquariello shows that the core of Jesus’ message is not that God is love, or that you should love your neighbor, although these are part of his message. The core of Jesus’ message is that God loves you. In fact, God is madly, passionately, wildly, wantonly, abundantly, overflowing in love with you.

In addition, readers and listeners will learn that: Jesus is saying that God is a woman, the most important things in life aren’t things, we’re not human beings trying to be spiritual, but spiritual beings trying to be human, loving is easier said than done, God is your constant companion, Jesus must have danced, your treasure is where your heart is, unless you care, nothing is going to get better, and with every moment of consciousness you are being grossly overpaid.

About the Author:

It was a life of social activism that led Dr. Pasquariello to write this book on Jesus and the Message of Love. Experiencing a call very early in life, actually when he was fourteen, he took the opportunity while in college to deepen his studies in theology and philosophy as he pursued a degree in mathematics. After two restless years as a math teacher in New York and Chicago, he turned to fulltime graduate studies at the Catholic University of America, where he got his master’s degree in religious education, doing his thesis on the concept of the church as developed by the German theologian, Karl Rahner. It was there that he became convinced of the importance of Jesus’ option for the poor, and was attracted by the theology of hope, started by Wolfhart Pannenberg and Jurgen Moltmann.

To broaden his perspective ecumenically, Dr. Pasquariello pursued a degree through the newly launched cooperative program between Fordham University and Union Theological Seminary in New York City. He went to Germany to do his doctoral dissertation on Wolfhart Pannenberg’s concept of reality, a philosophical study which deeply led him into Hegelian studies.

After four enjoyable years as assistant professor at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, New York, he was asked to take a position at the National Center for Urban Ethnic Affairs in Washington, D.C. There he served as assistant to the social activist Geno Baroni for four years until Father Baroni became the first, and it turns out, the only Assistant Secretary for Neighborhoods in the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Dr. Pasquariello was invited to become Senior Fellow in Urban Affairs at the Churches’ Center for Theology and Public Policy. While tenured there, he wrote Redeeming the City, Tax Justice, and Faith, Justice and our Nation’s Budget.

Yearning to be more socially involved, he took a position as executive director of the Marin Housing Center in California, in charge of four homeless centers. While there, he went into partnership in founding Crystal Way. The full name of the store is Crystal Way – a path to self-healing. Its purpose is to help people take charge of their spiritual lives.

Under the influence of Andrew Greeley, with whom Dr. Pasquariello published a book of interviews – Conversations with Andrew Greeley, Dr. Pasquariello gradually became aware of how misunderstood Jesus was. He also noticed that there was no book in print on Jesus’ message of love. That led to the present book.

Dr. Pasquariello, who has published two other books and numerous articles on religion and justice, currently resides in Sonoma County, California and is writing yet another book on Jesus.

Review:

“A wonderful new book about the power of God’s love.” -- Gerald G. Jampolsky and Diane V. Cirincione, Authors, Teach Only Love

“Dr. Pasquariello has done a great service for those who know Jesus, or desire to know Jesus more fully.” -- John Perring-Mulligan, Ph.D. Director of Marketing, Consultation, Education and Research, St. John Vianney Hospital

“Ron Pasquariello’s words came straight out of the depths of his heart . . . Soaring between the practical and lyrical... -- Dan Millman, Author, Way of the Peaceful Warrior and The Laws of Spirit
