`Review from previous edition He uses a wide-angled lens, and allows many aspects of the subject to come within his field of vision. The treatment throughout is orthodox and ecumenical ... the book's virtue is its assured combining of biblical material with questions in systematic theology. In more manageable compass than other books in the field, it offers what almost amounts to a textbook, at least of the biblical stuff.' Church Times `In an age of academic fragmentation and discipline (sub)specialization, rarely does someone dare a comprehensive statement in a major area of research. It is therefore refreshing to find a work such as this. The scope of O'Collins' Christological accounting is breathtaking ... Carefully and lucidly written, the book is appropriate for anyone interested in Christology. This is a mature book from a seasoned scholar on an important subject.' Choice `Gerald O'Collins ... has written a splendid introduction to Christology. No doubt the fruit of many years teaching and reflection it will quickly, I am sure, establish itself ... as a standard text-book. His historical survey, Old Testament to the modern day is masterful, and particularly strong up to Chalcedon ... It is certainly a book I will be encouraging students to buy.' New Directions `Professor O'Collins is a distinguished modern theologian, whose work deserves the greatest respect...This is a volume for which all who are concerned with Christology will be grateful.'
