While affiliation in organized religion may be decreasing, there is simultaneously a growing interest in spirituality and conceptions of God. The Catholic Church, and Christianity more broadly, have much to offer these conversations.

Surveying New Testament sources and the theological understandings born of them, John Markey’s Christ and the Spirit: Catholic Perspectives through the Ages presents a succinct and thoughtful explanation of Catholic understandings of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. With contributor Greg Zuschlag, Markey illustrates theological concepts through familiar stories, including Beauty and the Beast, Superman, and Star Wars. Equipped with review and discussion questions and recommendations for additional resources, Christ and the Spiritpresents a cohesive introduction to conceptions of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, while steadfastly insisting that the question Why does this matter? remain at the forefront of this exploration.
