Christopher Hussey takes an in-depth look at faith in The Bride of Christ: The Bridegroom and His Bride and challenges readers to examine their own relationships with Jesus.

The search for spiritual truth is an inherent part of human nature. From the days when humankind’s early ancestors looked around at the world and tried to make sense of their existence, people have constantly sought to find a deeper meaning in their own lives. Christianity has provided a lot of comfort and purpose for most folks over the centuries, and it continues to be a dominant religious force in the present. In Christopher Hussey’s The Bride of Christ: The Bridegroom and His Bride, he examines the marriage-like bond between Jesus Christ and His Church, and places this in the context of modern challenges. The result is a thoughtfully written work that will no doubt lead to hours of reflection for readers.

The crux of the author’s thesis is that the ancient Jewish wedding ceremony can provide invaluable insights into the ideal relationship that should be developed between the faithful of the Church and Jesus. He details how each part of the traditional process, from the
preparations undertaken in Shiddukhin all the way to the consummation of the marriage, correlate to the efforts that people must make these days in order to prepare themselves for their own marriage or bond with Jesus.

Hussey’s passion for his faith is evident in every word he has written, and he is thorough in providing examples and scriptural passages to support his case. He does, however, tend to reiterate points he has already made to a great degree, which sometimes undercuts the
subject he is discussing in a current chapter. A keener editorial eye would certainly be welcome in order to trim some of these repeating elements and consequently strengthen the impact of his words.

Any person who is in search of a religious-themed book or interested in exploring further aspects of faith would do well to spend time on Hussey’s opus. It is a meditative examination that can lead to a deeper understanding of one’s own beliefs. With The Bride of Christ: The
Bridegroom and His Bride
, Christopher Hussey cements his legacy as a spiritual leader.
