Fully Human, Fully Divine Mar 31, 2008
I highly recommend this entire book of essays on the impact of Jesus Christ on day to day living. The language is clear and precise and understandable. It can become a lifetime companion for guidance.

This book is incredible! I have never encountered a book that both engaged my spiritual development and growth as I read it, and was academically this solid. Casey is an exceptional writer and I have hung on nearly every word. This is where the rubber of spirituality meets the road of human existence.

I was concerned when I saw the word "Christology" in the title of this book that it would focus on the theological, rather than having Michael Casey's usual pragmatic spirituality. There was no need for concern, this book is consistent with Casey's usual style. Being a monk seems to have sharpened his understanding of the human condition.

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 our attention back to our own human condition. Thus, we grow in an understanding of our own humanity as the means by which we participate in the precious gift of divine life in and through Christ."
