The study of Jesus remains central to Christianity. "Who was and is Jesus?" and "What has he done for us and for our world?" are crucial questions that demand careful consideration and perennial answers. These Christological questions reach to the heart of Christian identity―both in its understanding of itself and in its relation to other world religions.

In Christology: Origins, Developments, Debates, Gerald O'Collins continues his groundbreaking work in Christology by first tracing its major developments over the last fifty years. He next turns to a theology of resurrection―Christology's central event―and the foundational roles played by its two great witnesses, Peter and Paul. O'Collins then masterfully constructs a "theology of religions" that explores the relationship of Christianity to other living faiths precisely in light of the priesthood of Jesus Christ.

In this volume, O'Collins engages the riches of the tradition and the challenges of the present to aid scholars and students alike who wish to grasp the centrality of the second person of the Trinity to the Christian faith.

About the Author:

Gerald O'Collins, SJ, AC, taught Fundamental and Systematic Theology at the Gregorian University, Rome, for 33 years. He is now an adjunct professor of Australian Catholic University, a fellow of the University of Divinity, and writer-in-residence at Jesuit Theological College, Parkville (Australia). He has authored or co-authored more than sixty published books.

Review:

"No systematic theologian can afford to ignore O'Collins' work, nor to fail to profit from his prodigious scholarship and consummate erudition. This welcome volume brings together eight chapters prompting further reflection and insight into the sublimely impenetrable mystery of the person of Christ and will prove especially valuable as a reference and resource for both students and theologians in the field."―Anne Hunt, Professor, Australian Catholic University, Melbourne

"O'Collins has spent his long and incredibly productive career as a theologian unfolding the 'unsearchable riches of Christ' (Ephesians 3:8). Not only has he stayed current in the Christological scholarship of several languages, but he offers fair-minded, yet critical, assessments of contemporary theologians on these topics. O'Collins has put the understanding of Jesus Christ at the heart of his scholarly output."―Peter Bernardi, SJ, Associate Professor of Religious Studies, Loyola University Chicago

"Gerald O'Collins has once again provided us with a clear, readable book on Christological themes. He summarizes well contemporary approaches to Christological studies in an ecumenical context."―Daniel Kendall, SJ, Professor, University of San Francisco

"This book is ideal for bringing undergraduates and church leaders up to speed regarding various post-conciliar debates in systematic theology and biblical studies."―Joshua Furnal, Theology
