TheWordMadeFleshThe Word Made Flesh

Fr. Richard Veras

“Father, you talk about Jesus as if he was here. If Jesus dwells among us, then where is he?”

Father Veras artfully answers this question with biblical texts that show how God chooses to manifest himself through his people—from Old Testament foreshadowing of the Incarnation to New Testament encounters with Jesus that turn ordinary men and women into missionary disciples.

TheUnmooredGodThe Unmoored God: Believing in a Time of Dislocation

Paul G. Crowley, SJ

This short, profound reflection centers on the meaning of faith and the place of God in a time of “dislocation.” As Paul Crowley writes: “Dislocated humanity is met by a God who chooses a divine dislocation in the Incarnation, entering simply and intimate­ly into our own human condition and showing the way, through suffering, toward life. Believ­ing in this unmoored God would look like en­tering into solidarity with unmoored humanity, and journeying with those who suffer, just as God did in Jesus.”

For all who struggle with belief in God in a time lacking familiar props or sure signposts, Crowley offers answers from his own heartfelt reflec­tion and theological struggle.

CreationAndTheCrossCreation and the Cross: The Mercy of God for a Planet in Peril

Elizabeth A. Johnson

In this fresh creative approach to theology, Elizabeth Johnson asks how we can understand cosmic redemption in a time of advancing ecological devastation. In effect, how can we extend the core Christian belief in salvation to include all created beings? Immediately this question runs into a formidable obstacle: the idea that Jesus’s death on the cross was required as atonement for human sin—a theology laid out by the eleventh-century theologian St. Anselm.

Constructing her argument (like Anselm) in the form of a dialogue, Johnson lays out the foundations in scripture, the teachings of Jesus, and the early Church for an understanding that emphasizes the love and mercy of God, showing how this approach can help us respond to a planet in peril.
