This book really opened up my spiritual life and deepened my relationship with God. It really shows how Jesus identifies with us and sanctifies every aspect of being human. Every experience can be a pathway to God.

I just started this book today. The first part of the Preface says:

"For the past ten years I have been interested in the theme of divinization. According to the teaching of many church Fathers, particularly those of the East, Christian life consists not so much in being good as in becoming God. The Holy Spirit's work in us goes beyond the reformation of our morals. It is a matter of forming us so that we become sharers in the divine nature and, because of this, capable of fulfilling the impossib

This is a gem - for the person who is serious about being a disciple of Christ.

Australian Cistercian Michael Casey intersperses chapters on the Gospel of Mark with significant material for personal spiritual growth.

But this is no mere commentary. It is a book, based in the scriptures and in the writings of the early fathers and the early Cistercians to reveal how Jesus is fully human and fully divine and how we are called to be "sharers in the divine nature."

Very much influenced by the early Chr

I bought this book in 2004. I've read most of it a couple of times and still keep coming back to it. Even now, I'm drawn to it again. Michael Casey, an Australian Cistercian monk, writes with clarity, and in the area of spirituality, that is critical.

It is significant, for me, that he writes of the need for us to 'ponder the central mystery of our faith, which is the incarnation of God.' He also states "This book walks on two legs. Half of the chapters are about Jesus, the rest are about us." T

It is a balanced and knowledgeable book that avoids overly technical language. And very readable. It is something like a manual for the believing Christian who is serious about wanting to make progress in their spiritual journey. It is not in any way reactionary. It is profoundly human. I like the style of Michael Casey. He has something to say and says it well. I read somewhere that he considers this one of his best works.

So far, after 20% of reading, I love this book. It is very profound and interesting how I came to choose it. I discovered it in the Abbey where I was attending a silent retreat some time ago. I was in the library and saw it and thought it was very interesting and would like to read it someday. The last day of the retreat, my spiritual director asked me if I have ever heard of it and suggested I should read it. Well, I don't believe in coincidences so I was sold. I try to read a chapter each morn ...more

An interesting and intriguing look at the life of Christ's life and Mark's gospel. Casey delivers some intriguing theological and spiritual insights; of ours it is written by a Catholic monk, so it'll no be everyone's cup of tea, but it is worth a look. ...more
