In this sequel to Does God Like Being God? John Honner explores contemporary questions about Jesus: who he was, what he did, and companionship with him in Christian life.
“Did Jesus have a Girlfriend? is a great question, one among many John Honner answers ably and well for teachers, catechists and parents faced with the often uncomfortable inquiries of young adults and teens. The book ‘unfolds’ doctrine rather than imposing it and is aimed at encouraging Catholics young and old to keep asking questions about faith, about Church, and especially about Jesus”
-Phyllis Zagano, Hofstra University, New York author of Just Catholic: The Future is Now
“Books that appear simple but keep revealing their depth are the most difficult to write, but John Honner shows us how it’s done. Did Jesus have a Girlfriend? is an accessible work from an erudite philosopher and theologian. The book is a pastoral guide to many questions people ask and offers rich imagery and practical examples that all sharers, pray-ers, preachers, or teachers can contemplate and use. Both challenging and consoling, its variety of uses and applications to our lives and practice of faith are endless.”
-Richard Leonard SJ, author of The Law of Love
