Filled with All the Fullnessof God looks at the truths of Christian faith which pertain to spiritualgrowth and the 'lived theologies' or spiritualties which have derived fromthem.McDermott discusses here a variety of issues - human self-knowledge,our understanding of God, our partaking in the divine nature of God and theimportance of prayer. He also emphasizes the importance of personal spiritualgrowth and argues that we should see Christianity not as a matter of just 'gettingto heaven' but as a way of participating in the divine life here and nowthrough deifying grace in the sphere of the Church, prayer and the Eucharist.McDermott illustrates his argument with a variety ofsources: Scripture, the Church Fathers, Thomas Aquinas, Catherine of Siena, theCatechism of the Catholic Church, andcontemporary spiritual writers.
