Grant, Robert M. Jesus After The Gospels: The Christ of the Second Century. London, SCM Press Ltd., 1990. 15 x 23cm. 134 pages. Original softcover. Excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear. Inscribed by previous owner on half-title page. This book, arising out of the 1988/1989 Hale Lectures given at Seabury-Western Theological Seminary, covers a period of theological freedom and ferment when the early churches were seeking to express their faith in innovative, meaningful terms. It deals with doctrines of the Christ: first with various biblical ideas, second with Gnostic christologies, third with an influential Jewish-Christian bishop and apologist, Theophilus of Antioch, and fourth with the christology of Irenaeus of Lyons, which is Catholic but still boldly speculative. Its aim is to show how some Gnostics and apologists, as well as a great anti-Gnostic theologian, could work out distinctive doctrines from the biblical materials. Yet again, Professor Grant here offers a fascinating glimpse into an eventful and creative period of Christian history which in a number of respects is not totally unlike our own. [From jacket notes]

Grant offers both an important and an accessible account of biblical Christology (the study of the person and nature of Christ), asserting that the humanity and the divinity of Christ, the Christology in the Apostolic Fathers and in Justin Martyr, the Jewish Christian Christology of Theophilus, the handling of disagreements as the Church began to distinguish orthodoxy from heresy, and Irenaeus's Christology were all bases for developing orthodox consensus. Important both for the scholar and the educated lay reader, this book clarifies the process of developing doctrine from diverse revelations in the early centuries of Christianity and provides a basis for understanding a contemporary reworking of Christology.
