“Who do you say that I am?”
Christ’s contemporaries ascribed many names and titles to Him, as we see recorded in the New Testament. Each one tells us something different about who Jesus is. In this book, Eric Sammons frames a series of thoughtful reflections on the names of Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew with references from the Church Fathers, saints, and Doctors of the Church. He “translates” the depth of the mystery of the Faith so you can discover new dimensions of the person of Christ and new ways to recognize and welcome Him into your life.
“This volume exemplifies what the world Synod of Bishops recently called for: sound biblical resources that help people encounter Christ, the Word made flesh, in the reading of Scripture.” — Mary Healy, Ph.D., General Editor, Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture
“Eric Sammons knows how to cut to the chase with grace and aplomb. Who Is Jesus Christ? is the most important question that has ever been asked in the history of the human race and he ably helps us answer it — and all the deepest longings of the human heart — through the Christ he serves so well.” — Mark P. Shea, Author, Mary: Mother of the Son
“Drawing on his own faith journey and his personal experience, Eric Sammons demonstrates how the lived Word of God — reflected in the lives and writings of the saints and prayers of the Church — can help us to better know Jesus and to strive to form our daily lives into his likeness. Who Is Jesus Christ? is a work of devotion and readers should find it both inspiring and encouraging.” — Most Reverend Donald W. Wuerl, S.T.D., Archbishop of Washington
“Those who read this book will be richly rewarded as they seek to encounter the Lord in Matthew’s Gospel.” — Father Giles R. Dimock, O.P., S.T.D., Prior, Dominican House of Studies
