The Oxford Handbook of Christology Summary

The Oxford Handbook of Christology by Francesca Aran Murphy (Professor of Systematic Theology, Professor of Systematic Theology, University of Notre Dame)

The Oxford Handbook of Christology brings together 40 authoritative essays considering the theological study of the nature and role of Jesus Christ. This collection offers dynamic perspectives within the study of Christology and provides rigorous discussion of inter-confessional theology, which would not have been possible even 60 years ago. The first of the seven parts considers Jesus Christ in the Bible. Rather than focusing solely on the New Testament, this section begins with discussion of the modes of God's self-communication to us and suggests that Christ's most original incarnation is in the language of the Hebrew Bible. The second section considers Patristics Christology. These essays explore the formation of the doctrines of the person of Christ and the atonement between the First Council of Nicaea in 325 and the eve of the Second Council of Nicaea. The next section looks at Mediaeval theology and tackles the development of the understanding of who Christ was and of his atoning work. The section on 'Reformation and Christology' traces the path of the Reformation from Luther to Bultmann. The fifth section tackles the new developments in thinking about Christ which have emerged in the modern and the postmodern eras, and the sixth section explains how beliefs about Jesus have affected music, poetry, and the arts. The final part concludes by locating Christology within systematic theology, asking how it relates to Christian belief as a whole. This comprehensive volume provides an invaluable resource and reference for scholars, students, and general readers interested in the study of Christology.

The Oxford Handbook of Christology Reviews

The Oxford Handbook of Christology is a must-have for students of the Bible and theology desiring an update in the main defining area of Christian faith and scholarship. * Tomas Bokedal, Journal for the Study of the New Testament *
This is indeed a beautiful book, which reflects the beauty of Christ himself. * Gerald O'Collins, Journal of Theological Studies *
I found this book most helpful. There is plenty of material for those with a theological interest in Christology. * Dr Pravin Thevathasan, Christendom Awake *
