Sebastian Moore has to be one of my all-time favorite writers. His books have been like a magnifying glass to my Bible and my faith. Vividly and with great insight his Christology is insightful and heart-changing in its import.
Although he is very intelligent and a dense writer, his difficult writings have been a labour of love, one worth reading and rereading for its import and meaning.
This time his writing is both more accessible and (only slightly) less rewarding. Never has his work been so lucid and readable. Much like Thomas Merton's Conjectures of a Guilty Bystander, 'The Contagion of Jesus:...' is topical and journal-like in its presentation. Featuring writings, sermons, journals, and papers, the effect of the whole work is food for all seasons.
While I enjoy his thoughts about women, homosexuality, Judaism, and Islam, et al, I find him as always the most effective when he presents his illuminating thoughts about Christ, His disciples, and their revolutionary spiritual impact in our world and their relevance today. His other scattered topics are revelations, too, but some might find it controversial for their tastes. (Try "The Practice of Focusing" near the end. I found it fruitful and consoling.)
If you've never experienced a Sebastian Moore book before, there may have been no better time or place to start. As the easiest to read and embrace, his insights bless us beyond his ninetieth year and give us much more rich thought to ponder.
