9780198755029: Christology: A Biblical, Historical, and Systematic Study of Jesus Christ

Recent years have seen the publication of a number of sensationalist books on Jesus that are supported neither by the New Testament witness nor by mainstream Christian beliefs. This important new book critically examines the best biblical and historical scholarship before tackling some of the key questions of systematic christology: How could Jesus be fully a man and yet truly divine? How could he be sinless and yet exercise free human will? How can his role as universal savior be reconciled with other religions? Can his maleness be reconciled by the just demands of feminism? Clear, balanced, and accessible, this book offers an invaluable interpretation of these and other controversial issues for students, general readers, and clergy.

Review:


"A Christological accounting that is breathtaking in scope....Carefully and lucidly written, the book is appropriate for anyone interested in Christology."--Choice


"The present book represents the distillation of years of study, reflection, and writing. It is a work of informed scholarship, careful critique, and mature theological insight. It shows how deep fidelity to the tradition can stimulate, not constrict, creativity....Gerald O'Collins has thought Christological truth anew, thereby displaying its vital power."--Commonweal


"[O'Collins'] years of teaching, lecturing and writing on various aspects of Christology have borne fruit in a tightly argued volume....This book should be required reading for all students of Catholic theology..."--AMERICA


"An ambitious and scholarly work....A worthy contribution to a discussion that will end only with the return of its subject in glory."--First Things


"This mature and insightful systematic work reflects O'Collins' capacity both for critical reflection and for personal commitment..."--Christology
