CHRIST THE LORD by Gerard S. Sloyan


Email this review


The title suggests still another life of Christ. But this book is not. Father Gerard Sloyan, chairman of the Religious education department at the Catholic University of America, here provides Christians with a patchwork from his rich background of knowledge of the Gospels in a form which cannot help but give new insights into the wealth of spiritual resources available in the pages of the New Testament. Though somewhat disjointed because there is no continuous pattern of subjects treated, the bare, brief outline form used makes for ease of reading allowing for piecemeal study and meditation. The language is frequently colloquial and even slangy, but the author's intent to speak in present day style in order to make the person of Christ the Lord more fully understood is clear and reverent. Father Sloyan's book may not appeal to the sophisticated, but should certainly attract the millions who should know Christ better because they will be reading what they can understand.
