Mystical Body Foreword 1

Bishop Douglas Blackwell

Bishop Douglas Blackwell with Ron and MadelineWe are given in this book a very helpful, and challenging devotional overview of the Mystical Body and of the fundamental Biblical and theological concepts of "The Mystical Body of Christ." Here we have a variety of lenses by which we can gain a fresh and focused view of God in Christ, ourselves, others, the Church, and the culture in which we live.

C. S. Lewis

C.S.Lewis ProfileC. S. Lewis (1898-1963 AD) a British novelist, poet and Christian apologist in both Oxford and Cambridge Universities reminds us in one of his letters, written over fifty years ago, that "the New Testament does not envisage solitary religion for the Church is not a human society of people united by their natural affinities, but the Body of Christ in which all members, however different, (and God rejoices in the differences and by no means wishes to iron them out), must share the common life, complimenting and helping one another, precisely by their differences." The Mystical Body of Christ is a study book. It contains helpful questions for personal and group reflection. Personally, I am glad that we have been reminded of the scope, the grandeur, the vitality and the saving dynamics of "The Mystical Body of Christ."
