These are just a few of the questions that have given Christology a whole new shape in recent years. Through the process of inquiry, conversation, and debate, students, clergy, and other professional ministers receive a complete introduction into the current thinking about Jesus' religious significance the present stage of Christology.

Reviews - What do customers think about The College Student's Introduction to Christology (Theology)?

Easy to Understand Christology  Aug 4, 2000
There are many new books about Jesus Christ.The kinds of books that Catholic scholars were writing changed about forty-five years ago. What that change was about is the topic of Professor Loewe's book. He has presented the material in a fashion that gives students the backgound to grasp the complex questions of the historical and modern mystery of Jesus Christ. Traditional questions and contemporary scholarship are unfolded as Professor Loewe explores the various approaches and doctrines of christology. This is a very easy to read and understand book about a very difficult subject.
