Christ the King of Glory: Christological Trilogy Vol II by Dom Anscar Vonier

Dom Anscar Vonier, Abbot of Buckfast, was among England’s greatest homilists and theologians of the early twentieth century. His works include "A Key to the Doctrine of the Eucharist" and "The Spirit and the Bride." Having explored the unity of Christ’s Divine Person in The Personality of Christ, Abbot Vonier now considers his duality of natures, divine and human.

In a penetrating account, he shows how both the divine and the human in Christ, by retaining their distinction and individual integrity, each operate fully in Christ’s priestly work of obtaining eternal redemption for humanity. In consequence, the Church approaches both natures with an attitude of reverence and “worships everything in Christ, his body and his blood, his heart and his head, his acts and his thoughts.” These are no mere exegetical treatises for the trained philosopher; their common purpose is to strengthen devotion, not by appealing to sentiment but by adapting to modern needs the classical exposition of the Fathers and Scholastics, especially those of his great Master in Divinity St. Thomas Aquinas.
