Understanding the Person of Christ affects our understanding of all Christian theology. All ten contributors to this volume share a commitment to the orthodox theological tradition in Christology as expressed in the creedal heritage of the Christian church, and seek to explicate the continuing coherence and importance of that theological tradition.

The book's ten essays cover such topics as prolegomena to Christology, the incarnation, the person and nature of Christ, the communicatio idiomatum, the baptism of Christ, the redemptive work of Christ, the ascended Christ, and New Testament Christology, and offers critical engagements with such diverse theologians as John Calvin, Charles Williams and John Zizioulas.

The contributors, all leading academics, include: John Webster, Richard Burridge, Robert Jenson, Stephen Holmes, Douglas Farrow, Brian Horne, Murray, Douglas Knight, Sandra Fach, Christoph Schwoebel.

Review:

"A collection of cutting-edge essays on the person of Christ ... We are treated to...a fine essay from Stephen Holmes ... which is one of the clearest historical-theological expositions of this doctrine I have ever read ... It is a fitting testament to one of the most important English theologians of the twentieth century, and to the work that his own quiet enthusiasm and generous spirit fostered in those who studied under him." (Oliver D.Crisp, University of Bristol, UK Theology)

"In contrast to the impenetrable prose that unfortunately characterizes far too much theological writing, those who appreciate the clarity and succinctness often found in the best conference papers will not be diasppointed here ... this is a book worthy of recommendation both for its commitment to attentiveness to the Scriptures and the historical creedal traditions of Christology and for its eagerness to develop what is heard into a coherent retelling for the twenty-first century church." European Journal of Theology, XVII 2008 (Kent D. Eilers European Journal Of Theology)

"This work is an ideal introduction into the complexities of how interpreters have approached the questions of Jesus' resurrection, and provides an excellent summary and critique of both the participants hermeneutical approaches. It is presented in a very readable format and is recommended for student and scholar alike"2006 (Mark Lee Genter, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, USA Theological Book Review)
