The Humanity of Christ
This variant is currently sold out.
By Romano Guardini
Psychological analysis is not without its perils; its observations can result in an individual being placed in a strictly naturalistic, immanent situation, rendering even the notion of transcendence unintelligible. Is a psychology of Christ even possible? Considering that question of urgent importance, Guardini shows how Jesus Christ both embraces and transcends everything merely human—he is the Word made flesh. Appreciating the actual earthly existence of Christ, his revelation of himself—and the Father—to us, yields a richer understanding of the figure which emerges from the earliest days of the Church and which in each phase of its proclamation points back to the original, divine reality which towers above them all.
An essential component of a complete Christology, The Humanity of Christ is an excellent and succinct complement to the theology set out in Pope Benedict XVI’s Jesus of Nazareth trilogy.
