At the heart of the Christian faith is the mystery of the Incarnation–God manifesting his love for us by becoming man. In this book, which he had been working on in the months before his death, Cardinal Basil Hume reflects on the Incarnation and its meaning for our lives and for society. He helps us to see that it is this event that should be at the center of our new millennium, and he encourages us to fix our eyes on Christ, the light of the world.
Divided into three parts, The Mystery of the Incarnation covers subject such as: the contemporary search for meaning, rediscovering the transcendent, prayer, saints for our time, peace, human love and relationships, the future of society, and preparation for death. A book of deep simplicity and prayerfulness, it will speak to those within the church as well as those on the margins of faith.
