Acknowledged as one of the leading contemporary Catholic Christologists, Thomas G. Weinandy has collected in one volume his most important contributions to our understanding of Jesus as the incarnate Son of God and Savior of the world. In four distinct sections he examines some of the biblical revelation concerning Jesus, historical and systematic issues in Christology, contemporary Christological questions and concerns, and the importance of Jesus within our Christian life. These essays manifest Weinandy's considerable biblical knowledge, extensive understanding of the historical and doctrinal Christological tradition, judicious discernment of current Christological debates, and fresh, innovative analysis of today's pressing Christological concerns. All of this is achieved within, and so advances, the beauty and truth of the Catholic faith. Jesus: Essays in Christology confirms Weinandy's prominent place in the Catholic academic community.
"This collection of essays presents a unified vision of theology in which Christological truth across the ages is presented skillfully, as both ancient and modern, in modes of reflection both theoretical and practical. The Christological reflection of Weinandy is consistently concerned with the essential, and bespeaks a profound commitment to the plenary teaching of the Catholic Church, the excellence of scholarship, and the dynamic insight of modern theological engagement. His work is that of an expert teacher and an exemplary priest. It deserves to be widely read, pondered, and discussed."~Thomas Joseph White, Thomist
"Acknowledged as one of the leading contemporary Catholic Christologists, Weinandy has collected in one volume his most important contributions to our understanding of Christ… These essays ably demonstrate Weinandy's authoritative biblical knowledge, catholic understanding of the historical and doctrinal traditions, awareness of contemporary Christological debate and issues... I would have welcomed a complete list of Weinandy's publications, especially those that have appeared in journals, in order to have had an idea of how the various articles relate, chronologically, to one another and how Weinandy's thinking develops."~Luke Penkett, Heythrop Journal
