Focus on Jesus: Essays in Christology and Soteriology

Front Cover
Gracewing, 1996 - Religion - 254 pages
"Who do you say I am?" Jesus asked his disciples. There has never been a shortage of answers to his question, and the debate has never been more intense than it is today. Each generation produces its own versions of Jesus, some more, some less in keeping with the traditions of the Church. In this book, two eminent Jesuit theologians present some of the fruits of their many years of labor on the question of Jesus and his identity, sometimes in confrontaion with other theologians -- notably John Dominic Crossan, John Hick, Hans Kung, and Edward Schillebeeckx, as well as other writers on the wilder shores of speculation. Difficult questions about his incarnation, birth, ministry, crucifixion, resurrection and work of salvation are all debated with scholarship and sensitivity to the mystery of the one who is at the heart of Christian life and thought, Jesus Christ.
