Jesus invites us to know him in the Eucharist and in the community of the Church, and so to participate in the divine life of the Trinity.
Drawing on years of experience teaching in parishes, schools and universities, theologian Father Thomas Plant puts the best of contemporary biblical scholarship into an accessible and compelling account of how the earliest Christians understood Jesus: as much more than just a good man…
Plant offers the Catholic Jesus as an antidote to the individualistic approaches to Jesus of both fundamentalism and liberalism. An Anglican priest, Plant opens the riches of the Catholic Church’s ancient, more communal and sacramental understanding of Christ to a wider Christian audience.
Readable and engaging, this book is ideal for Confirmation candidates, ordinands and parish study groups, but can help all Christians to a deeper knowledge and love of Christ and his Church.
