Neuman's "Christology: True God, True Man" as a part of the Loyola Press' Catholic Basics series is surprisingly comprehensive despite its short length. The first Chapter introduces the reader to the idea of Christology, goes on to talk about Jesus in the scriptures as divine and then Jesus in the New Testament as human. Neuman then moves to a history of the development of Christology starting with the first ecumenical councils through modern day, and includes other branches of theology such as soteriology and eschatology. He ends with a discussion of considerations of Christ in other religions. The book is laid out like the perfect into course to Christology. Neuman does a good job of presenting the teachings of the Catholic Church straightforwardly. Note for the Theologians: though Neuman speaks of the legitimacy of both high and low/ascending and descending Christologies, (the sections on Jesus' humanity are particularly well written) the process of this work operates more from a high/descending Christology, noting the resurrection as the central event that, "chronologically,... first revealed God's total acceptance and exaltation of Jesus and his ministry."
