This volume takes the reader on a journey from New Testament and early church views of incarnation to contemporary understandings of Christology. A prominent group of scholars explores and debates the idea of “deep incarnation”—the view that the divine incarnation in Jesus presupposes a radical embodiment that reaches into the roots of material and biological existence, as well as into the darker sides of creation. Such a wide-scope view of incarnation allows Christology to be meaningful when responding to the challenges of scientific cosmology and global religious pluralism.

Making sense of Jesus is comprised of twelve chapters of a Christological nature, which are the result of a multidisciplinary theological research project. The aim of this book is to ascertain how, in the current cultural situation, an encounter with Jesus is determined by specific historical and personal conditions, and what the consequences of such an encounter may be. The book is divided into two parts, the first of which contains research that deals with encounters, mediated by New Testament and historical studies, while the second is dedicated to contemporary and constructive issues of a cultural, technological, moral and existential nature. The basic approach of the research, and that of this publication, is not to continue conventional Christology, but to generate new knowledge therein. In this approach, issues are raised and questions are asked which, while both inspiring and unsettling, no serious academic can afford to ignore. - Prof. C.J. Wethmar, University of the Pretoria

Christianity has often been accused for being complicit in ecological destruction. In response, Christian ecotheology offers both a Christian critique of environmental destruction and an ecological critique of Christianity. It thus encourages an ecological reformation of the Christian tradition for the sake of the whole earth. This volume focuses such a dual critique on the content and significance of the Christian faith in order to confront those aspects that may undermine an environmental praxis, ethos and spirituality. Each of the essays explores one of the core Christian symbols, seeks to capture the current state of the debate in this regard, identifies emerging horizons for such an ecological reformation and invites conversation on the road ahead. This volume includes essays on the trinity, Christology, pneumatology, creation, anthropology, natural suffering, providence, sin and salvation, the nature, governance, ministries and missions of the church, eschatological consummation, a Christian ethos, the role of liturgy, religious plurality andunderlying methodological problems. It thus complements several other discourses in ecotheology on biblical hermeneutics, a retrieval of particular traditions, environmental ethics, animal studies, ecclesial praxis, Christian missions and religion and ecology. The volume captures insights emerging from a collaborative research project on 'Christian Faith and the Earth' in which more than one hundred leading ecotheologians from six continents participated since 2007. It builds on the culminating conference of this project held in Cape Town in August 2012.It extends the conversation on the road ahead through inputs from contributing authors and various respondents.

The early centuries of the Christian church are widely regarded as the most decisive and influential for the formation of the church's convictions about Jesus Christ. The essays in this volume offer readers a fresh orientation, and ground-breaking analyses, of the figure of Jesus in late antiquity. Written by historians and theologians who examine the thought of leading theologians, Latin and Greek, from the second through the seventh centuries, these essays honor and complement the scholarship of Brian E. Daley, Catherine F. Huisking Professor of Theology at the University of Notre Dame. While most discussions still confine patristic Christology to its conciliar trajectory, this volume broadens our horizons. The essays gathered here explore aspects of early Christology that cannot be narrowly confined to the path marked by the ecumenical councils. The contributors locate Jesus within a rich matrix of relationships: they explore how early Christian theologians connected Jesus Christ to their other doctrinal concerns about God, the gift of salvation, and the eschaton, and they articulate how convictions about Jesus Christ informed numerous practices, including discipleship, martyrdom, scriptural interpretation, and even the practice of thinking well about Christ. "The rich diversity and wealth of information found in these essays offers an admirable reflection of the wide-ranging and depth of scholarship that has long been associated with Brian Daley's work. Considering the scope of participants in this collection; from accomplished peers to recent Ph.D. graduates, the book bears witness to the degree Fr. Daley has influenced and shaped generations of scholars. As such, this collection succeeds in honoring a man of faith who is certainly worthy of such an honor." --Daniel H. Williams, Baylor University "The essays in this volume all address in differing ways themes that arise out of the classical Christological tradition of the early Church. For a collection of essays the material is unusually well focused and the volume will make a fresh contribution to the current state of patristic scholarship on early Christian thinking about the person and work of Christ." --Robert Louis Wilken, William R. Kenan, Jr., Professor of the History of Christianity, University of Virginia "Jesus' question to his disciples, 'Who do you say I am?' is the starting point of all Christian theology. In this splendid volume, more than a dozen distinguished scholars encounter that question again, in many and varied ways. Together, they provide fresh insights on the person of Jesus Christ as they reflect on the thought of the Fathers of the Church from contemporary perspectives." --Joseph T. Lienhard, S.J., Fordham University "Brian Daley belongs in the front rank of patristic scholars in the United States. It is fitting, therefore, that he be honored with this collection of essays, centering on his long-standing central concern with Christology. These essays nuance the Christological thought of key documents and figures from the second to the seventh century. They deal with not just the ontological nature of Christ but also general aspects of the faith in Christ as connected with other Christian doctrines. The distinguished list of contributors testifies to the influence of and esteem for Brian Daley. The volume is a worthy tribute to a premier patristic scholar." --Everett Ferguson, Abilene Christian University

In this distinctive volume on the life of Jesus, Robert Peterson presents the biblical doctrine of Christ’s saving work in a fresh and comprehensive way. Peterson’s ability to explain the relationship between text and doctrine, to uncover connections that have eluded many others, and to organize the material in a way that makes it clear to seminarians and pastors and accessible to the layman, makes this volume a work to be noted. Peterson is as sound as they come, and his extensive preaching and teaching ministry enables him to make complex theological matters comprehensible to nonspecialists. Salvation Accomplished by the Son aims to glorify Christ by presenting the saving work of Jesus in greater scope than has previously been done, and to encourage Christians to worship and serve him. This book explains in detail what Christ has done to rescue us, both his deeds and the biblical pictures illustrating them. Offered here is a substantive, significant, and enduring treatise on a key Christian doctrine—the work of Christ.

The New Testament documents cover an intense period of innovation and development in what we now call Christology. Before Jesus, Christology either did not exist, or existed, properly speaking, only in different forms of messianic expectation. At the end of that period, however, an advanced and far-reaching Christology is already in place that does not hesitate to speak of Jesus as God. This excellent study of the origins and early development of Christology by James D. G. Dunn clarifies in rich detail the beginnings of the full Christian belief in Christ as the Son of God and incarnate Word. By employing the exegetical methods of historical context of meaning and conceptuality in transition, Dunn illumines the first-century meaning of key titles and passages within the New Testament that bear directly on the develop-ment of the Christian understanding of Jesus. Chosen by "Christianity Today" as one of the year's Significant Books when it first appeared in 1980, this second edition of "Christology in the Making" contains a new extended foreword that responds to critics of the first edition and updates Dunn's own thinking on the beginnings of Christology since his original work.
