As we meditate on the names of Christ, he inspires us to revise our expectations of him and move on to his ever-renewed presence in our lives; this may present us with a newfound understanding of his grace. Jesus Christ is to be absolutely central in the prayer life of any Christian. To pray with and in Christ means attempting to transcend our limited, sometimes doctrinal or parochial understanding of who he is. The mystery of Jesus Christ is so rich that it can encompass all strands of tradition as well as all our imagination. We work through a variety of names of Christ to get a glimpse into the unified whole. The book is in five parts that includes all traditions. The end result is a comprehensive confession of his faith and testimony to the many "names of Christ" that cross through historical, monastic, and mystical traditions. Chapters situating Christ in context of his life in Palestine, his role as a son, friend, and family member, and his place in the living history of the church all help to create a full, well-rounded portrait of his divine and human lives. By viewing Christ through these various facets, the book helps readers enrich their relationship to the mystery of God, adding contour to their spiritual journey. Scholars, clergy, and lay religious alike will be inspired and informed by Brother Victor-Antoine's ability to present difficult concepts in a clear, straightforward manner, informed by years of monastic practice.
