Format: Paperback
The primary textbook for my Christology class at seminary, Erickson is at his best here, covering all the necessary elements for a complete understanding of modern Christology. From the historical development of Chalcedonian Christology to the modern views of process and feminist Christology, all the bases are covered. The last half of the book is dedicated to an actual defense of the classical (Chalcedonian) view of who Jesus Christ was. No one can give the reader more information to process while keeping it clear and level-headed than Erickson can. This book is an extremely important piece of contemporary evangelical theology.

This is an amazing book but be well aware this is a dense read and not a casual "Pick it up and put it down in a hour." Erikson covers a variety of topics and presents his facts and reasoning very well but this book is more academic than casual.

Erickson does a great job of describing classical Christology then taking you on a ride through many modern Christologies, highlighting the good but also pointing out their deficiencies. This is not a book for novices, but a great book to understand the world of modern Christology on a deeper level.

Ditto what the two previous commenters wrote. This book opened many new insights for me and yes there is more to be said in many areas but Erickson brings out enough to be understood and give the reader a good foundation to research deeper in any one or all areas of Jesus' humanity.

Format: Hardcover
Lengthy volume covering the historical and biblical issues. "Conservative." Covers several viewpoints and a thoughtful evaluation of each. I wanted more detail in some areas, but it covered so much already.
