This Is My Beloved Son: The Transfiguration of Christ
Number of pages: 164
—From the Foreword by Metropolitan Kallistos of Diokleia
“For many Western Christians the Transfiguration is a barely remembered incident in the gospels, its feast, 6 August, is a non-event! Here, a master of Eastern theology and a specialist in iconography explores this gospel-event as a revelation of the mystery of Christ and simultaneously a revelation of our own human identity. What makes this book special is that it plumbs the riches of Eastern Christianity from within, but expresses that wealth in a way that Western Christians can appreciate.” —Thomas O’Loughlin, Professor of Historical Theology, University of Nottingham
“A radiant book about the lovely radiance of Christ on the mountain: and how it symbolizes the Lord’s abiding presence, at once eucharistic and mysterious, in his Church across time. Highly recommended for spiritual reading.” —Fr. John McGuckin, Columbia University; author of The Prayer Book of the Early Christians
