About this title

Synopsis:

The Transfiguration, one of the most mysterious miracles of Christ, has been mostly misunderstood for two millennia.“Andreas Andreopoulos approaches the Transfiguration explaining its significance in the continuing experience of the church and in the personal journey of each Christian. He sees the Transfiguration as ‘a timeless story,’ as ‘an event that keeps on happening.’ He writes in a way that is vivid yet profound and often unexpected. Reading his text, I have come to look at Christ’s Transfiguration, and our own, with new eyes and a fresh understanding.” 

                                                —From the Foreword by Metropolitan Kallistos of Diokleia

“For many Western Christians the Transfiguration is a barely remembered incident in the gospels, its feast, 6 August, is a non-event! Here, a master of Eastern theology and a specialist in iconography explores this gospel-event as a revelation of the mystery of Christ and simultaneously a revelation of our own human identity. What makes this book special is that it plumbs the riches of Eastern Christianity from within, but expresses that wealth in a way that Western Christians can appreciate.” —Thomas O’Loughlin, Professor of Historical Theology, University of Nottingham

“A radiant book about the lovely radiance of Christ on the mountain: and how it symbolizes the Lord’s abiding presence, at once eucharistic and mysterious, in his Church across time. Highly recommended for spiritual reading.”  —Fr. John McGuckin, Columbia University; author of The Prayer Book of the Early Christians
