Fio Mascarenhas has beautifully woven together various scriptures to share deep insights into the love and power of the Triune God. Lucidly explaining some of the most dynamic Scripture texts, his reflections here are supplemented by well-chosen personal and cultural material, to make the book alive and attractive to those interested in a more profound comprehension of the Christian faith.
The thirty chapters, distributed over four parts, are intended to be used for daily prayer by laity and religious alike. The first part deals with how God is our ‘Abba’ Father; the importance of this daily awareness is stressed throughout. In the second section, Jesus’ Death on the Cross and His life-giving Resurrection are treated with fresh insight so as to enable Jesus’ co-heirs to joyfully embrace their own crosses in a spirit of “divine-human partnership.” A rich and inspiring treatment of the Holy Spirit, one much influenced by John Paul II’s encyclical Dominum et vivificantem forms the third part; and the last section offers substantial scriptural teaching on the Church and its mission, the Eucharist, the Bible, Marian devotion, and our Christian “marathon pilgrimage” of life.
