With his customary encyclopedic reach and epigrammatic style, Donald Bloesch turns his attention to the hotly disputed, yet absolutely crucial, subject of the person and work of Jesus Christ. He brings a much–needed clarity to the current Christological debate, which, as Hans Küng noted, “has persisted since the dawn of the modern age [and] has not yet been resolved.”

Drawing on more than forty years of devoted study, Donald Bloesch now brings a much–needed clarity to the discussion. Well apprised of the most recent developments, yet grounded in his own deep Reformed faith, Bloesch goes beneath current reconstructions of the Jesus of history to probe underlying issues of theological method, models of salvation, the plausibility of miracles, the language of faith and the doctrine of sin.

As Bloesch declares, “Christology constitutes the heart of theology, since it focuses on God’s work of salvation in the historical figure Jesus of Nazareth, and the bearing that this has on the history of humankind. To know the nature of God we must see his face in Jesus Christ.” This important book is a vital exercise in seeing Jesus Christ faithfully and truthfully.

    In this Volume, Bloesch takes on Christology with an emphasis on Soteriology and Sovereignty. I especially appreciated the coverage on the Incarnation and Virgin Birth. As with previous volumes, this is a re-read for me - and this volume I read originally about 15 years ago. I find Bloesch quite easy to read, and his arguments easy to follow. I also appreciate the way he summarises other views, and supplies a reasonable amount of references, thus allowing for further research if so desired. The one downside of this volume, I would argue, is that there needs to be more on Jesus in his First Century Jewish setting. Well worth reading!
