Overview

This work by Graham Ward, one of the most visionary theologians of his generation, contains nine interrelated studies of representations of Christ. Drawn from sources as diverse as the New Testament and twentieth-century continental philosophy, Ward develops his own original incarnational theology. From his exploration of contemporary categories such as the body, gender, desire, politics and the sublime, a Christology emerges that is both rooted in Scriptural exegesis and concerned with today’s cultural issues; and a vision appears of the possibilities for living orientated towards the Good, the True, the Beautiful and the Just.
