Overview

This book brings together a range of key primary texts on the doctrine of Jesus Christ. Editors Jeff Astley, David Brown, and Ann Loades present rigorous academic examination of specific aspects of Christology: the development of classic Christology from its biblical roots through patristic debates, responses to the modern distinction between the Jesus of history and the Christ of faith, the understanding of incarnation as kenosis, and the critical and constructive developments of liberation and feminist theologies. Each chapter also includes topics for further discussion.
