Jesus, a Living Reality

  • Dec 14, 2006
Sebastian Moore is a great writer of Christology. He gets to the heart of the matter, especially the human heart, whose hunger and desire for transcendence is apparent in a complicated and alienated society. Hardly just containing religious piety, the Benedictine monk has insightful reflections about expanding the human heart by studying man's voyage as sinful, longing, lonely, grasping, yet filled with great potential. By passing through meditations on Christ and the transformation of his disciples through the mysteries of His death and resurrection, the reader is able to make tangible progress through that same voyage. Sometimes his presentation requires some effort, but for those whose hearts burn by every word of his reflections, it is a labour of love. Sebastian Moore's works are primarily effective because his reflections about God mirror the image of man [made in His image] who can draw from divine (sacred) heart and is accessible to every man (or woman).
