Captivated by the Master

A Theological Consideration of Jesus Christ


About this item

Theologian Fr. Brian Mullady brings enlightenment and consolation to the faithful with this concise yet powerful summary of the teachings of the Catholic Church about Christ. 

Masterfully addressing the gap in the knowledge of modern Christians about the nature and implications of the traditional, systematic doctrine of Christ, Fr. Mullady confronts the efforts of modern theologians to separate Christ from His Cross and suggest that His purpose on earth was merely to resist unjust social structures and advance wise moral teachings. 

Such fundamental misunderstandings of Christ, Fr. Mullady says, lead to a flawed interpretation of Scripture that wrongly minimizes miracles and reimagines uncomfortable sacrifices. To remedy such confusion, he documents how the nature of the union between God and man in Christ came to be defined over a 500 year period by major councils of the Church. Drawing on these gradual but consistent pronouncements of the Church, Fr. Mullady speaks with authority about the reasons Christ came to earth and shows how the nature that He assumed promoted His purpose, which was to redeem the Human race.

"This book, by my former theology professor, Fr. Brian Mullady, O.P., was written for the training and consolation of the faithful, in particular those who went through a disastrous catechesis and who now badly need formation."

"This book will be of great service to those who grapple with problems presented by our modern society that seems to deny divinity."

"With his characteristic loyalty to Sacred Scripture, Tradition, and the magisterial teachings of the Church, Fr. Brian Mullady, O.P., successfully counters modern- day Christological fallacies and delusions to prove the dogmatic truth that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever."
