Although it is essential to note that Nikos Kazantzakis's religious views do not easily comport with mainstream Christianity, it is equally correct to claim that his theology of God, Christ, and salvation contributes to a wider, biblical faith in the making. He is an important part of a long and distinguished tradition of religious thinkers who affirm God's mutability, who stress Jesus Christ's humanity, and who declare that the redemptive process involves divine-human co-creatorship. It is time now that we reassessed him, interpreting Kazantzakis as a poet of the graced search for religious meaning. Those who would criticize him from a Christian perspective would do well to re-read his work in light of some of the important makers and remakers of Christian doctrine.
