Fully Human, Fully Divine: An Interactive Christology.

By Casey OCSO., Michael.

Liguori, Missouri.: Liguori Publications. Liguori / Triumph.. Near Fine. 2005. Soft Cover. 8vo - 21 x 14 cm.; xvi - 352 pp. First published in 2004, this is the second printing. From the back cover: "In eloquent prose, Michael Casey offers a Marcan-based Gospel exploration of the humanity and divinity of Jesus. Chapters on the dynamics of Jesus' life on earth as portrayed in Mark alternate with chapters that turn their attention back to our own human condition. . . . As the chapters of this book proceed, we are primed to embrace renunciation, detachment, knowledge of the truth about ourselves, our humble realization of our own lack of merits, and the discovery of a contemplative intensity that allows us to step outside ourselves." Thirty pages of end notes, 5 page index of bibical texts and a 2 page index of authors. Michael Casey has written a rather nice 6 page note on Cistercian Spirituality by way of an introduction and he is a Cistercian monk in Tarrawarra Abbey in Victoria, Australia, just northeast of Melbourne. Very minor wear to the tail edge of the front cover, else fine. .
