Item Description...
Overview
Translated by Philip Milligan and Linda M. Cicone Marked by growing freedom and equality, today's families are also dogged by brokenness and loss of faith. And while the theology of marriage has developed remarkably under the impetus of the Second Vatican Council and Pope John Paul II, the theology of the family remains in its infancy, only beginning to meet the challenges of contemporary society. In Divine Likeness Marc Cardinal Ouellet points the way to a much-needed theology of the family grounded in the doctrine of the Trinity. Cardinal Ouellet understands family life to be a sacrament of Trinitarian communion, a crucial source for revealing and inspiring a new sense of God's presence in the faith community. This book will help theologians, pastors, and believers to develop fruitfully the legacy of Pope John Paul II, carrying forward the quest to let the Trinity and the family illuminate each other for the good of today's world.

Brilliant Writing but Heavy Reading  Jun 26, 2007
Cardinal Ouellet of Quebec, Canada does something extraordinary and very important in this book. He takes Pope John Paul II's theology of the body as a starting point and develops it further, diving deeper into the details. His aim is to help develop a "Trinitarian anthropology of the family," a task that has not yet been undertaken by many theologians.

There is definitely a lot of interesting food for thought here, and each page could lead to hours of reflection.

Unfortunately as a non-theologian, I found this book to be difficult reading. It is not written for the ordinary lay reader but for the theologian/ scholar. That is surely intentional (hence I didn't take off any stars), since the Cardinal's goal is to further the serious theological reflection on the theology of the body. The result is that you won't find the easy, ordinary language of Papal encyclicals here; instead, be ready for complex sentences peppered with technical terms and references to other scholars. Two examples:

"To adopt a katalogical perspective, always from the point of view of theological method, is also to say that "it is only in the mystery of the Word made flesh" that man's deepest identity becomes clear (GS 22). This hermeneutical principle conditions any interpretation of Scripture. It implies that we agree to consider the book of Genesis in light of eschatology; the Alpha in light of the Omega, the first Adam in light of the second Adam. A scrupulous exegesis of the texts of the Old Testament should not prevent a theological approach from re-reading the first steps and the promises of the first Covenant from the starting point of the unhoped-for and unforeseen fulfillment they reveive in Christ." (15)

"The approach coincides in all but a few details with the vision of Hans Urs von Balthasar, who includes the man-woman difference within the image of God, while avoiding identifying the sexual complementarity too exclusively with the image. He differs from Karl Barth on this point and rather falls in with E. Przywara, who maintains that the image of God is found both in and beyond the man-woman duality..." (32).

The later chapters, especially Chapters 6 and onward, were slightly easier to understand, or perhaps I finally got a bit more habituated to the difficult language. It is at that point that I gleaned some wonderful pearls of wisdom and insight, and got a taste of what treasures this book really contains. Nonetheless, I admit that I did not quite make it all the way to the end of the book, since my attention span eventually short-circuited.
