Description

John Macquarrie turns to one of the few areas of Christian theology to which he has not yet devoted systematic attention - that of Christology. After an introductory chapter, the first part considers the main New Testament sources and also the period up to and including 'classical theology.' A second part examines the Enlightenment and post-Enlightenment critique of classical Christology, together with attempts at reconstruction. In the third and final part, John Macquarrie makes his own systematic and constructive Christological statement. The entire work represents a vital and welcome contribution to an area of Christian teaching which has been especially under debate in recent years and in which problems and confusions often abound.
