The title of this book may cause misgiving in certain quarters. "Questions about Christ" are sometimes thought to be innecessary; we may differ in our opinions about Christ, it is said, and yet have Christ Himself; we may trust Him without taking sides in theological controversies. But a little reflection shows the absurdity of such indifferentism. Faith in a person always involves opinions about the person in whom faith is reposed; it is impossible to trust a person whom one holds to be untrustworthy. So it is in the case of our relation to Christ. It is really preposterous to place "theology" in contrast to simple faith; for the "theological" questions which are being debated in the Church today are not questions which lie on the periphery of Christian belief, but concern rather the central question whether Jesus was merely a prophet who initiated a new type of religious life or a Savior to whom we may safely commit the destinies of the soul. It is these great matters which are discussed in this book.
