On the Cosmic Mystery of Jesus Christ review ✓ 109 The last half of the twentieth century saw the establishment of the reputation of St Maximus the Confessor as the greatest of all Byzantine theologians with a wholeness of vision that speaks directly to many of our concerns today Until very recently however little of his work has been available in English translation save for some collections of brief reflections arranged in centuries and a few brief treatises too easily classified as spirituality This volume provides translations from St Maximus two main collection For St Maximus the cosmic mystery of Jesus Christ is nothing less than the deification of the cosmos St Maximus will develop this argument with the Logoslogoi construction In other words the principles of creation eg logoi find their arche their unifying principle in the Person of Jesus Christ They participate proportionally in God 54The larger argument of this work is a running commentary on St Gregory of Nazianzus St Gregory is refuting neo Origenists who posit a bodily pre fall While few people today worry about Origenism and many of St Maximus and St Gregory s arguments will seem academic the arguments do provide an interesting snapshot of early Christian interpretation Simply St Maximus interprets St Gregory to say that Christian theology teaches BECOMING MOVEMENT REST Thus it is impossible for a creature who has reached beatitude full rest to fallAt all times St Maximus remains doggedly committed to Chalcedonian orthodoxy For him the whole mystery of Christ is the hypostatic union of humanity and divinity 123 Christ is the beginning middle and end of all creation For him incarnation is salvation It is the lens through which to interpret the beginning and goal of the universe 33At the end St Maximus deals with the monothelite controversy Christ s prayer in the garden affirms both a human will and a divine will Even though the human will seeks perfect concordance with the divine will this no way negates the real human will of Christ If Christ doesn t have a full human will then Christ isn t fully man If Christ isn t fully man salvation was not achievedEVALUATIONThis is one of those great books that redefine reality That is not a light claim For the Incarnation has changed the very structure of reality If everything is held together in Christ Col 116 20 and the Logos has assumed fleshmatter then does this not suggest a dynamic interplay between reality and divine Of course we reject pantheism and our comments in no way suggest that This is one of those books that needs to be read at least four or five times The pressing scientific and theological issues cannot be really appreciated on the first three readings Andrew Louth s introduction is world class and raises a number of pressing scientific and philosophical issues to the believer The reader is encouraged to read and meditate on St Maximus work while consulting the physics and alternative history of Joseph Farrell who has also written on St Maximus at the same time
