This fourth and final volume of The Life of Jesus Christ presents extensive meditations on the passion of Christ, a favorite theme for Ludolph’s contemporaries. He then conducts the reader through the events of Easter and Pentecost, concluding with meditations on the return of Christ at the end of time, bringing to a triumphant conclusion the sweep of salvation history begun in the first volume. Along with presenting the final part of the Carthusian’s magisterial work, this volume includes a detailed index to all four volumes.

Milton T. Walsh holds a doctorate in sacred theology from the Gregorian University in Rome. For many years, he taught theology at St. Patrick's Seminary in Menlo Park, California. He is the author of several books, including Second Friends: C. S. Lewis and Ronald Knox in Conversation, In Memory of Me: A Meditation on the Roman Canon, and Witness of the Saints: Patristic Readings in the Liturgy of the Hours.

Reviews

"If you could only nourish your life of prayer with the Bible and one other book, a strong case could be made that Ludolph's Life of Christ is that book."
Julian Meetings Magazine

"With this, in four volumes, we have a comprehensive commentary on the entire Gospel from the beginning to the end of time. The translation is superb. Dr. Walsh is to be congratulated on this magnum opus."
The Downside Review

"This book, and the others in the series, would be very useful for spiritual reading, lectio divina and for preachers, who could look up a passage and gain a good summary of views on the passage and use this in writing their own homily."
The Downside Review

"With the completion of this monumental translation, both its historical significance and taking into account the development of both doctrine and discipline since its first appearance, its ongoing value can be readily recognized and appreciated."
Catholic Books Review

"A monumental undertaking, which offers evidence of just how rich and varied is the Christian tradition, and what educated religious, clergy and laity were reading, thinking, and praying in the later Middle Ages.
American Benedictine Review
