Overview

Your understanding of the person of Jesus Christ was formed over the years from many sources: teachers, devotions, and personal experiences. Awareness of those elements is important as you begin a systematic study of the two natures of Christ, divine and human.

Using a combination of spiritual and contemplative approaches, Monsignor Kelly will help you critique the personal Christology you already have and then examine the Scriptural background for the Church's faith in Jesus, moving historically through some of the more important developments in the life of Christ.

""It is a pleasure to recommend this book because it is not only informative but spiritually enriching for those who wish to deepen their faith and their relationship with Christ. Monsignor Kelly has placed his theological and catechetical skills at the service of all of us in producing this thoughtful, insightful, and spiritual reflection as we constantly seek to deepen our appreciation of Christ, the Son of the Living God.""
-- Most Reverend Donal W. Wuerl, STD, Archbishop of Washington
