This revised and expanded third edition of Father Kereszty's widely used Christology text is equipped with recommended readings, study questions and updeated bibliography. In dialogue with contemporary concerns and controversies, it present a pentrating and integral approach to the mystery of Christ, with broad appeal to Roman Catholics, Protestants and Orthodox Christians alike. In it they will find an articulation of their common faith in Jesus, the Christ, true God and true man. Though written as a Christology text on the graduate level, the book interest any educated reader who seeks to know Jesus.

"This book is alive and exciting. While reading it, I was aware of the impact that it would have made on my preaching and teaching had it been a text studied in the seminary." — P. MacCarthy, Homiletic and Pastoral Review

"In controversial issues it chooses, as a rule, the most solid and enlightening views." — L. Renwart, Nouvelle Revue Théologique

"It is that rare textbook in theology that is written in a contemplative spirit and that includes to prayer. If I had to teach Christology, yours would be the book." — Louis Dupré, Yale University

"For the reader who is overwhelmed by the plurality of methods, philosophical presuppositions, and critical hermeneutical perspectives that characterize contemporary theology, the kind of synthesis this book achieves is profoundly encouraging." — Sara Butler, Mundelein Seminary

Reviews

"Roch Kereszty is adjunct professor of theology at the University of Dallas, chair of the theology department at Cistercian Preparatory School, and novice master at the Cistercian Abbey of Our Lady of Dallas. This book, originally for graduate students, attracted a much wider audience and now appears in a new edition. In three parts he treats New Testament, historical and systematic christology. An appendix discusses the relationship between anthropology and christology. For each chapter a reader's guide annotates recommended books and provides study questions." --W. Charles Heiser, S.J. in Theology Digest Book Survey, Spring 2003
