The Life of Christ: A Historical, Critical, and Apologetic Exposition (3 vols.)
Father L. C. Fillion’s monumental The Life of Christ is a thorough and methodical exposition of the God-man, Jesus Christ. This massive work is a historical, critical, and apologetic text. As a history, Fillion’s work places special emphasis on Christ’s historical context and the culture and country he inhabited, and explores Jesus’ personality. As criticism, Fillion’s work uses textual and literary analysis to demonstrate the unmatched credibility of the Gospels. Lastly, as an apologetic, The Life of Christ confronts the nineteenth-century historical Jesus movement and the rationalism that assaulted the Christian faith. This classic work, translated from the French by Newton Thompson, provides an insightful exposition of Christ’s life and ministry fit for Catholic and Protestant alike.
Heart Speaks to Heart: Three Gospel Meditations on Jesus
With a new foreword from friend and author Christopher de Vinck, Heart Speaks to Heart follows Henri Nouwen during a Holy Week retreat during which he desired to write about the Sacred Heart. As his words took shape, he instead spoke directly to the heart of Jesus. The resulting book shares Nouwen’s view of his own faithful, but often painful, journey to the Lord. A Prologue and Epilogue shares Nouwen’s own account on the creation of this book, which was inspired by a friend’s devotion to the Sa...
Jesus Christus offers a series of illuminating sermons on the life of Christ that were delivered to students at Berlin University, where Romano Guardini (1885-1968) taught. He was a mentor to such prominent theologians as Hans Urs von Balthasar and Joseph Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI) and in this book, Guardini’s teaching style comes truly alive.
Jesus Our Brother: The Humanity of the Lord
This volume reawakens Christians to the significance of Jesus being a real person who died on a cross. Noted biblical scholar, revered teacher, and graceful author Wilfrid J. Harrington writes movingly and with profound insight about Jesus as a human being. Harrington describes the life of Jesus, his concerns for the poor and oppressed, his traits of compassion and forgiveness, the rejection that he suffered, and the “Triumph of Failure” that the theology of the cross embodies.
The God of Jesus Christ: Meditations on the Triune God
God is—and the Christian faith adds: God is as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, three and one. This is the very heart of Christianity, but it is so often shrouded in a silence born of perplexity. Has the church perhaps gone one step too far here? Ought we not rather leave something so great and inaccessible as God in his inaccessibility?
Jesus the Christ
Father Thomas G. Weinandy—sometime Oxford tutor and later head of the Secretariat of Doctrine for the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops—opens the fascinating world of Christian theology to all readers. In clear language, he begins in Scripture to draw out the plan of salvation, leading the reader through the development of the Church's grappling with the glorious and paradoxical conviction: That no-one less than God Himself has lived nothing less than a human life. From within the life of the Trinity, to the womb of a young woman, to the Cross upon Calvary, the empty tomb, and the ascension into heaven, Fr. Weinandy unfolds the theological consequences of the Incarnation as the central belief of Christian faith in an understandable Catholic introduction to the theological wisdom of the ages. He hopes that it may be of use to every Christian who wants to understand Jesus and His work of Salvation better.
The Forty Parables of Jesus
In this book, which covers all of Jesus’ parables, award-winning author Gerhard Lohfink takes a closer look at the origins of each one—its shape, its realistic details, but most of all its original message and the situation into which it was once spoken. Jesus’ parables speak in bold images of the kingdom of God, making it present to us as they reveal something of the mystery of his own person.
A Biblical Path to the Triune God: Jesus, Paul, and the Revelation of the Trinity (Verbum Domini)
This short volume, finished just before Denis Farkasfalvy’s death in 2020, serves effectively as his last theological testament. Throughout his scholarly career, Farkasfalvy aimed to reconcile and unite theological disciplines that had increasingly become isolated from each other, most notably the biblical, patristic, and systematic. In A Biblical Path to the Triune God, the Cistercian abbot identifies the earliest biblical witnesses to the Church’s teaching about God, formulated at the Council of Nicaea, as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Jesus Becoming Jesus, Vol. 1: A Theological Interpretation of the Synoptic Gospels
Jesus Becoming Jesus presents a theological interpretation of the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke. Unlike many conventional biblical commentaries, Weinandy concentrates on the theological content contained within the Synoptic Gospels. He does this in the light of the Church’s doctrinal and theological tradition, particularly in keeping with the Second Vatican Council’s Dogmatic Constitution, Dei Verbum. Weinandy accomplishes this through a close reading of the individual Gospels themselves as well as observing their theological relationship to one another. His interpretation of the Gospels also brings to the fore the theological significance of God’s revelation that is contained within the Old Testament which, likewise, shows how theological themes contained within Matthew, Mark, and Luke are found and developed within the Gospel of John, the Pauline Corpus and other New Testament writings.
Jesus Becoming Jesus, Vol.2: A Theological Interpretation of the Gospel of John: Prologue and the Book of Signs
Jesus Becoming Jesus, Volume 2: A Theological Interpretation of the Gospel of John: Prologue and the Book of Signs follows upon the first volume of this series entitled Jesus Becoming Jesus. The first volume was a theological interpretation of the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke. Unlike many conventional biblical commentaries, Weinandy concentrates on the theological content contained within John’s Gospel. He does this in the light of the Church’s doctrinal and theological tradition, particularly in keeping with the Second Vatican Council’s Dogmatic Constitution, Dei Verbum. This is accomplished through a close reading of John’s Gospel, theologically interpreting each chapter of the Gospel sequentially. In so doing he also takes into account the Johannine corpus as a whole. He also relates John’s Gospel to relevant material found within the Synoptic Gospels, the Pauline Corpus and other New Testament writings. This original theological interpretation focuses primarily on the...
The Incarnate Lord: A Thomistic Study in Christology (Thomistic Ressourcement Series)
In recent years, Thomistic thought has seen a noteworthy revival, especially in the domain of systematic and historical theology. This resurgence of interest in Aquinas' thought is beginning to significantly affect the shape of academic theology as well as ecumenical theology. Yet there exists no serious study of Thomistic Christology, especially in dialogue with major themes in modern Christology. The Incarnate Lord, then, considers central themes in Christology from a metaphysical perspective. Particular attention is given to the hypostatic union, the two natures of Christ, the knowledge and obedience of Jesus, the passion and death of Christ, his descent into hell, and resurrection. A central concern of the book is to argue for the perennial importance of ontological principles of Christology inherited from patristic and scholastic authors. However, the book also seeks to advance an interpretation of Thomistic Christology in a modern context. The teaching Aquinas, then, is...
