Christology: How Do We Talk about Jesus Christ Today? explores key questions that concern those who struggle to reconcile today's world with the faith and witness of centuries of Christianity. How do we talk about Jesus in a world that demands inclusivity and shies away from ideologies and doctrines of any kind? What does it mean to talk about Jesus in theological terms? Driving this book is the nature and core of the Christian witness, which acts like a GPS, guiding the reader through the terrain of a modern theological discussion of Christ.
