Sinopsis: A wonderfully accessible and profoundly mystical exploration of the Transfiguration: the manifestation of God s glory in Christ
In the sumptuously illustrated book Transfiguration of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, Archbishop Joseph Raya explores the meaning of this great Biblical event as a sign of God s glory, a manifestation of the Holy Trinity, and a revelation of Christ as a Divine Person. He also explores Old Testament manifestations of God to Moses, Solomon, and Elijah; Gospel notions of divinity including light, whiteness, and glory; and the transformative effect of the Transfiguration on the Apostles, particularly Peter and John. Above all, he helps you see the Transfiguration as a glorious celebration of God in Christ and of the renewal of your own heart by His grace.
Most importantly, Archbishop Joseph shows how the Transfiguration provides a mystical pattern for your Christian life, foreshadowing the divinization that awaits every Christian: as a great early saint put it, God became man so that man might become God. He details the spirituality of the Transfiguration in four steps: purification, prayer, contemplation, and illumination, culminating in a breathtaking summation of the mystical meaning of the Transfiguration.
Making frequent reference to Scripture and to the writings of the great saints and Fathers of the Church, Transfiguration is grand appreciation of the event that Archbishop Joseph sums up as a call to each of us to love and forgive as God Himself loves and forgives. It is to be perfect as our Father in heaven is perfect.
