Shults writes an interesting concluding chapter which focuses on the more current philosophical debate of "otherness" as a means to get at the relational nature of ethics. His style is to quote many authors along the way. He summarizes Oliver Davies in Theology of Compassion: "compassion stands at the heart of empirical reality, as the encounter with the presence of the real personal other" (p. 205). And Pannenberg Systematic Theology (Volume 2) "argues that the self-distinction of Jesus from the Father is the inner basis for his divine sonship," and "this differentiation is vindicated and confirmed by the resurrection which reveals the self-actualization of the trinitarian God in the world" (p. 208).

The next most significant chapter is by Wannenwetsch, perhaps the best, which is a crystallization of Dietrich Bonhoeffer's position: "The question HOW that can be must be changed into the question WHO this person is. The answer is: the historical one and the crucified, the resurrected and ascended one, the God-human, revealed as brother and Lord, as creature and as creator" (Christology, by Bonhoeffer). He has sections on "Overcoming Moral Idealism (Bonhoeffer "locates the ethical center of Christology in ecclesiology" p. 85); "Challenging an Ethics of Emulation (Luther said "sacrament first, exemplar second" p. 89); Challenging a Moral Anthropology of Separation" (Bonhoeffer said "The 'heart' in the biblical sense is not the inner life, but the whole man in relation to God" p.
