9780800664633: Contemporary Christologies: A Fortress Introduction

While many know of the signal contributions of such twentieth-century giants as Paul Tillich or Karl Barth or Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, the important work since their time often goes unremarked until some major controversy erupts. Here is a smart and helpful survey of the chief approaches and thinkers in today"s understanding of the person, significance, and work of Jesus Christ.


Schweitzer offers an insightful introduction to the contemporary context of Christology, in which basic questions in the discipline (and soteriology) are being rethought in light of globalization, postmodernity, and the contemporary experience of evil. He then offers a kind of typology of the current approaches and voices.


Schweitzer"s volume concludes with a reflection on the recent past and present imperatives of a discipline that virtually defines what Christianity has to offer the present age.

About the Author:

Don Schweitzer is McDougald Professor of Theology at St. Andrew"s College, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. In addition to dozens of articles on issues in contemporary theology, Schweitzer is coeditor of Intersecting Voices: Critical Theologies in a Land of Diversity (2004) and past president of the Canadian Theological Society.

Review:

Surveys succeed when they illuminate the character of a given historical epoch and inspire readers to explore the original works they examine. Most surveys, in my experience, fail on both counts. They fail spectacularly when they function as substitutes for their own primary sources. Professor Schweitzer's book seems to me an exception. His generalizations about the post-War period in Christological thought are well worth contemplating; and his brief, interesting introductions to the thinkers whom he has chosen to study ought certainly to send his readers to the originals. --Douglas John Hall, Professor of Theology Emeritus, McGill University, Montreal, Canada

"Five major trajectories in christology are here explored in the works of fifteen leading Protestant and Catholic theologians from around the world. Well researched and deftly portrayed, Don Schweitzer invites readers to consider how these theologies have arisen from the life and social context of each theologian and how they address the animating concerns that define our age." --Bradford Hinze, Professor of Theology, Fordham University
