Overview

This work demonstrates the significance of Karl Barth’s Christology by examining it in the context of his orientation toward the classical tradition—an orientation that was both critical and sympathetic. To compare this Christology with the doctrine’s history, Sumner suggests first that the Chalcedonian portrait of the incarnation is conceptually vulnerable at a number of points. By recasting the doctrine in actualist terms—the history of Jesus’ lived existence as God’s fulfillment of His covenant with creatures, rather than a metaphysical uniting of natures—Barth is able to move beyond problems inherent in the tradition.
