Reviews - What do customers think about Consider Jesus: Waves of Renewal in Christology?

A Classic in the Study of Jesus  Aug 9, 2007
"Consider Jesus" is a rather short, deceptively humble book that covers every theory in answering that crucial question Jesus asks his followers and those who may have heard of him: "Who do you say I am?"
I have studied this book as part of a college theology class and then more slowly read it on my own. Elizabeth Johnson presents a well-considered feast for the intellect and the soul in presenting her own theological reflections in answer to that important question.
This book is small but it is a classic in modern theology.
Catholic Lay Mininstry Resource  Mar 19, 2007
A text that aids your understanding of Christology that is well written and informative. Good complementary book to "Jesus the Christ: A New Testament Portrait" by Thomas Zanzig, ISBN: 0-88489-621-8. Both text used in our dioceses Lay Ministry training program.
Compelling and readable intro to contemporary Christology  May 17, 2004
I have been using Elizabeth Johnson's Consider Jesus in introductory theology courses for at least a decade now. As far as I know, there is no book in its class for introducing undergraduate university students to contemporary theological issues in language that is understandable and stimulating.

Indeed, one of Johnson's great gifts as a theologian is her crisp, clean writing style. Her work is a model of clarity.

I always appreciate Johnson's ability to work on the boundaries of contemporary issues (e.g., religous plurality, theodicy, sexism, political and economic injustice, environmental abuse) with full and rich recourse to the wealth of Christian tradition. She's just good at it!

For a readable, introductory text on the doctrine of Christ during the past half-century, you cannot improve on Johnson's book.

Elizabeth Johnson presents a very well written and easy to read introduction to Christology for the new student of theology. She clearly explains the Christological definitions at the early Church councils, showing the errors that plagued the early church.

She presents a clear explanation of the meaning and implications of both: Ascending Christology and Descending Christology.

There is also a clear trace of the developments in Christology from the 50's up to the present time with Liberation and Feminist theology.

Johnson writes in the end, "Out of our own experience of salvation, our own telling of the story, our own praxis and prayer, we must name Jesus Christ again and claim him again for our own people, so that a living christology will be handed on to the next generation into the twenty-first century." I found these words to be encouragement for the reader to apply the story of Jesus of Nazareth to our everyday lives.

This is a MUST reading for any student of theology.
