Ethics in the Presence of Christ


T&T Clark 2012

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


By casting the identity of Christ as the One-Who-Is-Present, Holmes concentrates on how Christ ministers his power, truth, and love in the Spirit for the sake of the transformation of human life. As present, Christ's work is both finished and unfinished, complete and open-ended; as endlessly contemporary, it is constitutive of reality and so (re-)shapes the ethical landscape and the moral life. In revisiting the doctrine of Christ's contemporaneity with its ethical implications firmly in view, Holmes’s work fills a lacuna in the contemporary literature on Christian ethics. In conversation with John’s Gospel, the priority of Christology comes to drive the very shape of moral questions for today. Here the compelling task of ethics is a matter of becoming aligned with—and transparent to—Christ’s own presence and so to Christ’s work of making all things new.
