Synopsis: The question of how to read the Bible is a perennial one. How do we interpret the God who claims to transcend our human categories? The difficulty is particularly acute in John's Gospel with its account of a man, Jesus, who claims to be God. Based on the principle that a text can present the radically transcendent only by disrupting itself, this book considers not just the sense of the Gospel, but also the breakdown of this sense. Focusing on its failure to humanly locate its central character and on the many misunderstandings which surround him, it presents a new approach to the Gospel's paradoxes. The result is a new definition of this sacred text based on a new hermeneutics.

About the Author: The Author: James Richard Mensch holds a Licentiate from the Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies and a Doctorate from the University of Toronto. He is the author of The Question of Being in Husserl's Logical Investigations and Intersubjectivity and Transcendental Idealism. Currently an associate professor of Philosophy at Saint Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia, Dr. Mensch has taught at a number of universities, including Toronto, Dallas and the University of Washington. His varied career includes work as a mathematician and systems engineer in the Washington, D.C. area, and as a translator for the Dachau Concentration Camp Museum.
