From its beginnings, the Church has presented itself as a human phenomenon that carries the divine within it. As a social fact, its reality given form by men and women, the Church has always affirmed that its existence surpasses the human reality of its components and that it stands as the continuation of the event of Christ's entry into human history. Why the Church?, the final volume in McGill-Queen's University Press's trilogy of Luigi Giussani's writings, explores the Church's definition of itself as both human and divine and evaluates the truth of this claim.

Dopo aver affrontato il tema del senso religioso – essenza della razionalità e radice della coscienza umana – e quello della grande rivelazione di Gesù Cristo nel mondo, "Perché la Chiesa", terzo volume del PerCorso di don Giussani, introduce all'avvenimento della Chiesa. La parola "Chiesa" indica il fenomeno storico il cui unico significato consiste nell'essere per l'uomo la possibilità di raggiungere la certezza su Cristo, nell'essere insomma la risposta a quella domanda sul problema più decisivo per la vita sua e del mondo. Cristo, la verità diventata carne, dopo duemila anni raggiunge ancora l'uomo attraverso una realtà che si vede, si sente, si tocca: la compagnia dei credenti in Lui. In un percorso stringente, l'Autore propone dunque alla libertà e alla ragione dei lettori i fattori fondamentali e i criteri di una verifica di questa realtà. "Ma giunti al termine del cammino", afferma l'Autore, Dio rimane ancora incomprensibile, "se non si introduce la figura della Madonna, scelta da Dio stesso per farsi da noi riconoscere, metodo del suo comunicarsi all'uomo attraverso il 'caldo' del suo grembo."

In At the origin of the Christian claim Liugi Giussani examines Christ's "claim" to identify himself with the mystery that is the ultimate answer to our search for the meaning of existence. Giussani argues that if we accept the hypothesis that the mystery entered the realm of human existence and spoke in human terms, the relationship between the individual and God is no longer based on a moral, imaginative or aesthetic human effort but instead on coming upon an event in one's life. Thus the religious method is overturned by Christ; in Christianity it is no longer the person who seeks to know the mystery but the mystery that makes himself known by entering history. At the origin of the Christian claim presents an intriguing argument supported with ample documentation from the gospels and other theological writing.

Giussani challenges us to penetrate the deepest levels of experience to discover our essential selves, breaking through the layers of opinions and judgments that have obscured our true needs. Asserting that all the tools necessary for self-discovery are inherent within us, he focuses primarily on reason, not as narrowly defined by modern philosophers, but as an openness to existence, a capacity to comprehend and affirm reality in all of its dimensions.

The Journey to Truth Is an Experience is the first English translation of Il Cammino al vero è un'esperienza, Giussani's early works on the Christian experience, written from 1959-64. It begins with a guide on how to live the Christian life within the Student Youth community, followed by a call to base one's relationship with Christ on the example set by the apostles and other figures in the New Testament. Giussani concludes by outlining the movement's mission and the possibility for community, charity, and communion in the Christian life.
