And Now I See: A Theology of Transformation

August 01, 1998
Length: 285
Publisher: The Crossroad Publishing Company
Publish Date: August 1998



"This book rests upon the convinction that real matanoia, the transition from a mind of fear to a mind of trust, is possible.  Due to the playful, strange, unpredictable, and relentless love of God, the imago in us can be polished and the great soul can emerge." - Excerpt from And Now I See

Bishop Robert Barron offers an accessible exploration of Christian theological concepts that anyone can comprehend.  He divides his book into three sections as he examines Christianity as a source of human transformation. 

In his first section, Bishop Barron argues that human nature is alienated from itself and thus humans are in need of a mediator who can draw them back to God and self. The second section takes up a renewed understanding of God in light of the alienated nature of humanity. In his final section, Bishop Barron contends that Christ is a healer and reconciler who seeks to draw humanity back into relationship with God. Along the way, Bishop Barron draws on sources as diverse as Dante, Paul Tillich, Thomas Merton and Flannery O'Connor.
