"A Christological accounting that is breathtaking in scope....Carefully and lucidly written, the book is appropriate for anyone interested in Christology."--Choice"The present book represents the distillation of years of study, reflection, and writing. It is a work of informed scholarship, careful critique, and mature theological insight. It shows how deep fidelity to the tradition can stimulate, not constrict, creativity....Gerald O'Collins has thought Christological truth anew, thereby displaying its vital power."--Commonweal"[O'Collins'] years of teaching, lecturing and writing on various aspects of Christology have borne fruit in a tightly argued volume....This book should be required reading for all students of Catholic theology..."--AMERICA"An ambitious and scholarly work....A worthy contribution to a discussion that will end only with the return of its subject in glory."--First Things"This mature and insightful systematic work reflects O'Collins' capacity both for critical reflection and for personal commitment..."--ChristologyFrom the Publisher:
Recent years have seen the publication of various sensationalist books on Jesus that are supported neither by the New Testament witness nor by mainline Christian beliefs. This book critically examines the best biblical and historical scholarship before tackling head on some of the key questions of systematic christology: does orthodox faith present Jesus the man as deficient and depersonalized? Is his sinlessness compatible with the exercise of a free human will? Does up-to-date exegesis challenge his virginal conception and personal resurrection? Can one reconcile Jesus' role as universal Saviour with the truth and values to be found in other religions? What should the feminist movement highlight in presenting Jesus? This integral christology is built around the reurrection of the crucified Jesus, highlights love as the key to redemption, and proposes a synthesis of the divine presence through Jesus. Clear, balanced, and accessible, this book should by valued by any student reading systematic theology, anyone training for the ministry in all denominations, as well as interested general readers.

Summary: Jesus was born c. 5 BC. 2000 years after his birth, this book provides a completely fresh, scholarly, and reliable re-assessment of who he was and what he did. How could Jesus be fully a man and yet truly divine? Sinless and yet exercise free human will? What about Jesus' relationship to non-Christians? Can his maleness be reconciled to the just demands of feminism? These are just some of the key, and controversial, issues tackled head-on by this book.
