A Theological Consideration of Jesus Christ

Theologian Fr. Brian Mullady brings enlightenment and consolation to the faithful with this concise yet powerful summary of the teachings of the Catholic Church about Christ. 

Masterfully addressing the gap in the knowledge of modern Christians about the nature and implications of the traditional, systematic doctrine of Christ, Fr. Mullady confronts the efforts of modern theologians to separate Christ from His Cross and suggest that His purpose on earth was merely to resist unjust social structures and advance wise moral teachings. 

Such fundamental misunderstandings of Christ, Fr. Mullady says, lead to a flawed interpretation of Scripture that wrongly minimizes miracles and reimagines uncomfortable sacrifices. To remedy such confusion, he documents how the nature of the union between God and man in Christ came to be defined over a 500 year period by major councils of the Church. Drawing on these gradual but consistent pronouncements of the Church, Fr. Mullady speaks with authority about the reasons Christ came to earth and shows how the nature that He assumed promoted His purpose, which was to redeem the Human race.

With Fr. Mullady as your guide, you will learn:

  • Why understanding Christ is essential to knowing yourself
  • Why Jesus had to become a human being
  • Why, although He was God, the boy Jesus “increased in wisdom and stature”
  • Why Jesus prays . . . even though He is God
  • Why Adam’s sin spread punishment to the entire human race
  • Why Jesus did not come to earth as an angel
  • The meaning of “God from God, Light from Light” in the Nicene Creed
  • And much more to help you know and love Jesus better!
