Some doctrines require the full breadth of the theological disciplines for adequate treatment. Fred Sanders and Klaus Issler, as editors of Jesus in Trinitarian Perspective, deem Christology a prime example of such a doctrine. Sanders begins with a substantial introductory essay that delineates the basic elements of Christology and the design of the rest of the book. Convinced that "to say the truth about Jesus, we must keep him in Trinitarian perspective," Sanders explains how this volume explores "the implications of Jesus' identity as one of the Trinity" (3). He also demonstrates how the logical progression among the six chapters attempts to trace "the long arc" of the biblical metanarrative "from God's eternal being to humanity's redemption" (3).

After Sanders' introduction, five scholars from various disciplines contribute an essay investigating a topic along this Christological storyline. J. Scott Horrell defends a social model of the Trinity. Donald Fairbairn analyzes the Christological reflection of the early church. Garret DeWeese investigates the philosophic precision of the "one person, two natures" language. Bruce Ware exposits the atonement in light of the Trinity, and Klaus Issler highlights the example that Jesus' life provides for believers.

A clear strength of this volume is the depth and detail of its introductory elements. Sanders and Issler intentionally shape the book in "a method-transparent way" in order to "model the work of theology" for their readers (40). To this end, each contributor begins with a succinct chapter summary, followed by three "Axioms for Christological study," which are concise propositions related to relevant concepts. The next section contains a systematized list of key terms developed in the chapter.

Jesus in Trinitarian perspective is a challenging, but thoroughly rewarding read. The book is designed as an introduction, but it is obvious that as an introduction it is meant to expand your knowledge and pull you up to a higher level of understanding of the issues, not to merely state the issues and leave you as you were with new categories that you still don't understand. The book seems to demand multiple readings to grasp and I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to learn the issues. As far as the content goes, each of the six essays has final study questions, axioms for Christological study, and chapter summation that does a good job of briefly reiterating the essay. For convenience sake, all eighteen of the axioms are published again at the end for quick reference.
Fred Sanders' chapter deals with the first four ecumenical councils, up to the Chalcedon council. His essay briefly goes through the various heresies that the councils convened to refute and the conclusions that each reached. For those only interested in this part of the book, Dr. Sanders gives this information in lecture form at str.org under the title of God in a box: Drawing Proper Lines for Orthodoxy.
J. Scott Horrell's chapter covers the social model of the Trinity and why ontological equality does not equate with equality of role. Moreover, that there is a legitimate eternal structure to the Trinity.
Donald Fairbain's chapter goes in depth on the Chalcedon council and why some of the historical understandings of the warring factions of the council are misguided, namely that Chalcedon was a compromise between two large factions of the church.

If you haven't graduated from seminary, you are going to need Wikipedia and a dictionary.

Really good book, but very challenging to read. The content is excellent and gives a very good overview of Christology (the study of Jesus within the Trinity).

This is a thoughtful treatment of the core doctrine of the Christian faith: the Trinity. Drawing from the perspective of the ancient church's understanding of key biblical passages, I found this both a solid piece of scholarship and inspiring devotional reading.
