In this book Raimon Panikkar expresses his fundamental intuitions into the mystical unity of all and the way in which ?Christophany? is both the revelation of the fullness of humanity and humanity's fullness is the revelation of the ?Christic.' Throughout his lifetime, Raimon Panikkar has struggled to articulate the way in which the ancient patristic insight that divinization is the full humanization of the human being and the way in which a human being fully alive is the best icon of divinity. ?The guiding thread of Christophany,: says Panikkar, ?is to lead to a personal experience of that mystery.' ?Every being is a Christophany and the very nature of reality shows the non-dualist polarity between the transcendent and the immanent in its every manifestation.' This is not a book about mysticism, it is itself a vehicle to help the attentive reader experience the mystical depths of life. To know Jesus is to experience Jesus? mystical life, in particular to share in divinity and know God as ?Abba .' What happened in the life of Christ will happen in us. And in our transformed lives, God lives again in Christ without us losing our own being.
