This book is a theological study of the transfiguration story in the New Testament. The thesis is that the transfiguration functions as an epiphany (in the biblical sense), revealing Jesus' true identity, and also an apocalyptic vision, depicting God's transforming future. The book devotes a chapter to each of the four narratives of the transfiguration (in the first three Gospels and 2 Peter), setting the story without the wider literary and theological framework of the text. In addition, traces of the transfiguration story are explored elsewhere in the New Testament, particularly the Gospel of John, where the symbolism is close to that of the transfiguration. Finally, the book draws out the symbolism and theological implications of the transfiguration for an understanding of Christ, God's radical future and the transformation of all creation, drawing on the icons of Eastern Christianity, and Western theologies of beauty.
-Publisher

orothy Lee argues passionately for restoring the study of The Transfiguration to the centre of the theological stage, and she succeeds triumphantly. Whereas a theology of transfiguration has long been an essential part of the Eastern theological tradition, it has often seemed strange to our Western rational minds. Lee construes the Transfiguration as an epiphany of Jesus' true nature and an apocalyptic vision of God's radical, transforming future for all of creation. "Transfiguration is a small masterpiece and a model of clarity and lucid exposition.
