Steiner here lays the foundation for a new Christology out of his insights into the Gospel of St. John. He says it is not a book of instruction, but a force that can become active within our souls. As Marie Steiner says in her introduction, 'With this book we penetrate into the innermost structure of Rudolf Steiner's activities. For all his endeavors had this one goal - to pave for the world the way to Christ.'

Steiner here lays the foundation for a new Christology out of his insights into the Gospel of St. John. He says it is not a book of instruction, but a force that can become active within our souls. As Marie Steiner says in her introduction, “With this book we penetrate into the innermost structure of Rudolf Steiner's activities. For all his endeavors had this one goal — to pave for the world the way to Christ.”
