Publishers Description Cap. Words like "Christology" and "soteriology" can make our eyes glaze over. But masked by those big words in theology textbooks is some fascinating stuff. The questions theologians are asking are the questions that concern every Christian. Now, Father Weinandy makes those complicated theological issues understandable to ordinary intelligent readers like you and me. Going straight to Scripture, we learn about the plan of salvation in clear language that's precise enough to satisfy the experienced theologian. And the book is faithful to the teaching of the Catholic Church -- which is all too rare in theological circles. For every Christian who wants to understand Jesus and His work of Salvation better, here is an understandable introduction to the theological wisdom of the ages.

Reviews - What do customers think about Jesus the Christ?
confusing book! Feb 23, 2008
had to buy this for my introductory Christology course. The layout of the book is very confusing. It may seem organized at first, but the way the words and the paragraphs are put are pretty scrambled that you may need to outline exactly what you are reading. overall, a decent book. nothing too special.
An Excellent Introduction to Christology Jul 9, 2004
Fr Weinandy is well known for his book "Does God Suffer?". In "Jesus the Christ," he leads the reader into Christology (the identity of Jesus Christ) in a slightly less-intensely-academic manner. With cross-references to the Catechsim of the Catholic Church, and spanning everything from the history of the Church's developing refinement in Christological belief to the reader's own new life in the Spirit as a baptised and confirmed Christian, Weinandy's book is perfect for those who want to be able to answer, with Peter, "you are the Christ, the Son of God" when asked "who do you say that the Son of Man is?"
