About "The Spirituality of Communion"
The Gospel of John has often been accused of "soteriological individualism. At first glance that conclusion may seem to be correct: it may appear to foster a spirituality focused on self. The writer of John was fond of the verb, "to contemplate" and as a consequence many have drawn the conclusion that the Christian spiritual life is only being "alone with the Alone". With this important work Rosse is forwarding a new modern reading of the Gospel of John and the Letters of John. He believes that "the evangelist is calling upon us to live our relationship with God, our life of faith, in and together with the community of believers, thereby championing a "spirituality of communion". In perspective everything promotes a life in oneness, in unity. Jesus brings together the scattered children of God in order that they may live in the life of oneness of the Divine.
