An innovative Christ-centered theology exploring the centrality of Christ for Christian thought and shedding fresh light on major theological issues.
Kathryn Tanner is Dorothy Grant Maclear Professor of Theology at the University of Chicago Divinity School. She is the author of Economy of Grace (2005) and Jesus, Humanity and the Trinity: A Brief Systematic Theology (2001).
'Tanner is a fluent, careful writer who has a wide range of
historical scholarship at her fingertips, which she deploys with a
deft hand to a series of problems besetting modern theology.'
"Christ the Key is a shining light in a systematic theology. Not only is it a creative offering that avoids the ruts of the countless systematic texts that simply tell us what other theologians think, but it actually offers a distinctive and rich perspective of its own. This is a book that theologians will return to often and that all pastors should take the time to delve into. It will not disappoint." --Word & World
