Dorothy Lee is Professor of New Testament within the United Faculty of Theology, Melbourne. She is also Dean of Chapel at Queen's College, University of Melbourne. Her most recent publication is Flesh and Glory: Symbol, Gender and Theology in the Gospel of John
'the book is timely and important...every word of which needs to be
mediated on and studied. [Lee] makes a convincing case for seeing
the Transfiguration as an integrating image for the whole of
theology...In an age where theology has become fragmented, largely
thanks for the need for ever hreater specialisation, this is a
message that we all need to hear.' Alexander Lucie-Smith, Tangaza
College, Kenya, Heythrop Journal
''Dorothy Lee's short book is a sane, scholarly, but accessible discussion, which makes it clear how important the transfiguration was to the New Testament writers, and which goes a long way towards showing how and why it may be important for Christians today....The strength of her book lies...in the well-informed, insightful exegesis of the different accounts within the narrative context of each Gospel and book...admirably concise. I hope it will be read, and that it will help restore the transfiguration to its rightful place at the heart of Christian theology.' David Wenham, Theology, Jan/Feb 2006--Sanford Lakoff "Theology "
'[A] profound biblical meditation by an insightful scholar...Lee's book presents an impressive array of relevant implications of the broad theme of transfiguration in the New Testament.' John Paul Heil, Interpretation, July 2006--Sanford Lakoff "Interpretation "
'Lee should be credited for brining the transfiguration theme back into theological focus in a context that has often treated it as strange, foreign or insignificant...this reader found the chapter actually focusing on theology in its own right, how it has explored or neglected the theme of transfiguration, the most refreshing, original and 'new'.'
