Gaspard, Melchior and Balthazar, between the ox and the grey donkey... Far from the childish images repeated during the end of the year celebrations and freely inspired by the apocryphal gospels, the first two chapters of the Gospels of Matthew and Luke reveal, in addition to the origin of Jesus, God's plan for men and the way to participate in it.
The accounts of the Nativity and the first years of Christ's life, decoded here by Jean-Michel Maldamé, speak to the heart and intelligence and illuminate the meaning of our own presence on earth. With Mary, Joseph, Elizabeth, Zechariah, Anne, Simeon, the shepherds and the Magi thus appears the face of the new humanity gathered by the Messiah.
A theology book, with a scientific background, that opens on contemplation.
A Dominican from the convent of Toulouse, Professor Emeritus at the Faculties of Philosophy and Theology of the Catholic Institute, Jean-Michel Maldamé is a member of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences. His latest book, Monotheisme et violence, was published by Éditions du cerf (2018).
