Description:

-- Fourth volume in Bloesch's critically acclaimed Christian Foundations systematic theology. -- Probes the issues underlying the current debate over Jesus' identity and mission. With His Customary Encyclopedic Reach and epigrammatic style, Donald Bloesch turns his attention to the hotly disputed, yet absolutely crucial, subject of the person and work of Jesus Christ. In Jesus Christ he draws on more than forty years of devoted study to bring much-needed clarity to the ongoing discussion among scholars and the church at large. Well apprised of the most recent developments, yet grounded in his own deep Reformed faith, Bloesch goes beneath current reconstructions of the Jesus of history (Jewish cynic, itinerant sage, charismatic prophet and so on) to probe underlying issues of theological method, humanity's plight, the doctrine of sin, models of salvation, the Incarnation, the virgin birth, the plausibility of miracles, the relation between law and gospel, the language of faith, and the lordship and finality of Christ.
