Item description for The Revelation of the Glory: Part IVB: The Genealogy of Depravity: Living Alive to the Living God (God Encountered #2) by Frans Jozef van Beeck & Frans Jozef Van Beeck...
Overview This volume of God Encountered explores the human habit of balking at both death and love, especially the intimate love that accepts death as its measure. It also suggests the transformation of this habit offered us by God, with a pained love, of the kind that is in the end irresistible. The Jewish and Christian traditions say that we neither know nor love the eternal source not only of all cosmic energy but also of the human thirst for truth and goodness: God. Yet, only by God are we inclusively known and intimately loved, from eternity. God promises to be our lasting good, to live with us forever, acknowledged by all. Thus the Great Tradition knows of a plight infinitely worse than falling victim first to mindless passion and then also to the fatal seduction of our "best judgments." Such a plight is turning from God; being addicted, with Adam and Eve, to mastery and judgment; living in fear of death. Our world is finding this "theonomous" reading of the human condition unlikely. Why? Father van Beeck offers his explanation.

God Encountered: A Contemporary Catholic Systematic Theology
Reviews - What do customers think about God Encountered: A Contemporary Catholic Systematic Theology (vol..2/4B) revelation of the glory?
Finitude and the Fall Mar 30, 2007
This volume is the first of a sequence of two in-between parts of Volume Two. Neither part constitutes the doctrinal center of God, encountered and conceived as a system of Christian Theology. Fundamentally the author speaks in Chapters 12-14 (in the whole series) of Anthropology and Theology creation and Anthropology, definition of sin, and the power of sin. This volume also lays the foundation for the theology of sin to be covered in Volume Two: part IV. The format of the text is designed with a clear cross reference between the texts and volumes to come. The use of paragraph numbers and references of those numbers throughout these volumes gives an ease to forward and backward referencing which gives ease to reading a fairly complex book. In order to appreciate the total contemporary Catholic Systematic Theology it is necessary to read Volume One, Volume Two, parts 1, 2, 3, 4a, 4b, 5, and Volume Three. Part 5 and Volume 3 are in publication. Bibliography, subject, Scripture, and name index is included. It has been used as a college text for systematic theology classes.
