This book addresses a pressing need in classrooms everywhere to explain the unique nature of the Christian God. Fr. Smith observes that many intelligent and well-educated Catholics understand transcendence in a way that denies Jesus' humanity. By clarifying the divinity and transcendence of Jesus, Smith has been able to remove a number of misconceptions about Christology and help students grasp other fundamental theological issues more clearly as well. The World Is Charged is an important addition to college and seminary reading lists.
