Overview

This major work, now available in English, is considered by many to be one of the finest and most significant contributions to modern Christology. Preeminent scholar and theologian Ingolf Dalferth argues for a radical reorientation of Christology for historical, hermeneutical, and theological reasons. He defends an orthodox vision of Christology in the context of a dialogue with modernity, showing why the resurrection, not the incarnation, ought to be the central idea of Christological thinking. His proposal is both pneumatological and Trinitarian, and addresses themes such as soteriology, the doctrine of atonement, and preaching.

Praise for the Print Edition

Crucified and Resurrected is a work of rare distinction, offering a penetrating analysis of the elements and entailments of the Christian confession of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Its anatomy of Christology is undergirded by a sense that the beauty and significance of Christian thought and practice derive from the uniqueness of their object. This is theological reflection of a very high order, whose appearance in English is warmly to be welcomed.

John Webster, professor of divinity, St. Mary’s College, University of St. Andrews

This admirable translation makes Ingolf Dalferth’s already-classic christological work on cross and resurrection available in English for the first time, with a new preface that situates it within the trajectory of the author’s developing thought. What we have here is a study that returns us to the startling novelty of early resurrection belief and from there penetratingly expounds the ‘grammar’ and gift of its christological implications. A profound, original, and challenging account.

—Sarah Coakley, Norris-Hulse Professor of Divinity, University of Cambridge
