What do we mean when we profess in the Apostles' Creed that Christ 'descended into hell'?  In The Depth of God's Reach renowned author and teacher Michael Downey shows how Christ’s descent provides a spiritual foundation that offers both consolation and hope, a spirituality that recognizes Christ's solidarity with us in our own suffering and trials. This book will be a cherished resource for all who are trying to make sense of suffering, death, and life beyond death.



Michael Downey has taught theology and spirituality at universities and seminaries in North America and abroad.  Schooled in the spirituality of Jean Vanier and l’Arche, his abiding concern for the wounded and marginalized has led him to serve those most in need through conferences and retreats throughout the world. He is also author of Altogether Gift: A Trinitarian Spirituality (Orbis).



'In this luminous volume, Michael Downey's theological erudition enriches even as his poetic turn of phrase inspires.”
---Richard R. Gaillardetz, Boston College

'How often we recite the creedal statement, 'He descended into hell,' without much thought! Calling on theology ancient and modern, poetry, creedal history, worship traditions, and personal stories of pain and loss, Downey leads readers through deep and often surprising waters in search of the statement's implications for today's believers. Beautiful, well-crafted language sustains the adventure. He returns again and again to ask how Christ's descent offers hope to those who live, as we all do, in a Holy Saturday world where 'hellish suffering' is all too much a part of our global reality.'
---Genevieve Glen, OSB, contemplative nun, writer, poet, retreat leader
