This book reflects upon various dimensions and implications of the astounding fact that Christ shows us what it is to be God by the way he dies as a human being and, in so doing, simultaneously shows us what it is to be a human being. Connecting the end—“It is finished”—with the beginning—“Let us make a human being”

Fr John Behr challenges us to think again about who we are, as male and female, what we are called to become, and the relation between life and death in this journey. Presented in a poetic and meditative manner, adorned by images and offset quotations, this book inclines the reader towards a meditative reading, weighing, rather than skimming, each word and image.

The Very Rev. Dr John Behr is the Dean of St Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary, Professor of Patristics, and the Editor of the Popular Patristics Series. He is also the author of The Way to Nicaea, The Nicene Faith and The Mystery of Christ: Life in Death, all available from SVS Press.
