Shades of Divinity by S. M. Hutchens

Shades of Divinity

On the God of the Christians (and on one or two others) by Rémi Brague


St. Augustine's Press, 2013
(160 pages, $26.00, hardcover)

reviewed by S. M. Hutchens

The advent of our Lord, the apostolic account of the cosmic significance of his divine Sonship, and the teaching of the Church on the character of his unity with the Father and Holy Spirit require that all valid utterance about God be subject to the doctrine of Christ, who said, "He who has seen me has seen the Father." This does not disqualify all understandings of or approaches to God not consciously within the sphere of orthodox Christology, but orients them toward a telos in light of which they must be judged and their meaning as truth must be found.

"Here we do not concede one square millimeter of territory to falsehood, folly, contemporary sentimentality, or fashion. We speak the truth, and let God be our judge. . . . Touchstone is the one committedly Christian conservative journal."
