The Shining Stranger is not a theological discourse that offers in modern dress the same answers to the mystery of Jesus that orthodox Christianity has offered in ever more obscure terms for over 2,000 years. Preston Harold takes as his premise that St. Paul's interpretation of Jesus as Messiah, and the miracles Jesus is reported to have worked, estrange the Christian in today's world. As fact is separated from theory and Jesus' own words are examined, a new answer to the mystery of Messiah takes shape, and the miracles are brought into new perspective.
