Item description for Jesus Christ in Modern Thought by John MacQuarrie...
Overview 'An important and significant book, which provides a clear, critical and comprehensive analysis of the history of Christology and a balanced and compelling argument for one approach which should help make the classical creeds more intelligible and the idea of the incarnation more probable in a secular culture.
Publishers Description In this long-awaited book, John Macquarrie turns to one of the few areas of Christian theology to which he has not yet devoted systematic attention that of christology. After an introductory chapter, the first part considers the main New Testament sources and also the period up to and including classical theology. A second part examines the Enlightenment and post-Enlightenment critique of classical christology, together with attempts at reconstruction. In the third and final part, then, John Macquarrie makes his own systematic and constructive christological statement. The entire work represents a vital and welcome contribution to an area of Christian teaching which has been particularly under debate in recent years and in which problems and confusions often abound. John Macquarrie, formerly of Union Theological Seminary, New York, is Emeritus Lady Margaret Professor of Divinity in the University of Oxford.

An Outstanding Review of the Modern Jesus Apr 5, 2007
In this excellent survey of modern Christological responses to the classical Chalcedonian conception, we are in Macquarrie's debt. He wears his learning lightly, but there is brilliance on every page. In Part One he works through the New Testament witnesses to Jesus, concluding with the heuristic vision of classical Christology ("Nicea/ Chalcedon"). In Part Two he surveys modernist critiques of this confessional Christology in an appreciative manner (without final approval). He then asks what it might take to "construct" a Christology today. This was riveting reading on every page and there was not a moment in which I did not learn something. This is not easy reading although it was very clear reading due to the literary acumen of Professor Macquarrie. If you want to think long and hard about Jesus--this is a book that will help you do so.
