Reviews - What do customers think about Reality of Jesus: An Essay on Christology?
not quite what I'd hoped for Apr 30, 2000
This work does a fair job of exploring the mystery of who Jesus Christ was and is. Premises of Lane's hermeneutic approach load the dice in such a way as to yield a Jesus who is not quite the Son of God as Christians have long understood him to be. This departure from traditional Christology seems somewhat veiled by an appeal to the absolute mystery of God, when Lane argues that even Jesus couldn't have been the perfect revelation of the Father.
