Seeing the contours of Christian thought about ChristThroughout the two-thousand-year span of Christian history, believers in Jesus have sought to articulate their faith and their understanding of how God works in the world. How do we, as we examine the vast and varied output of those who came before us, understand the unity and the diversity of their thinking? How do we make sense of our own thought in light of theirs? The Christian Understandings series offers to help.In this insightful volume, David H. Jensen offers an engaging tour through more than two millennia of thought on Christ. Starting with the New Testament and moving forward, Jensen outlines the myriad beliefs, developments, and questions encompassing the attempts to understand Christianity's most central--and most mysterious--figure. From the patristic portrayals to medieval Christology, from the Reformation to the Enlightenment, and into the twentieth century and beyond, Jensen presents a helpful and needed guide.

David H Jensen

David H. Jensen (Ph.D., Vanderbilt University) is Professor of Constructive Theology at Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary. He has published several articles in the area of interreligious dialogue, and in his first book, In the Company of Others: A Dialogical Christology (Pilgrim Press, 2001), Jensen sets forth a christology that encourages dialogue among Christians and people of other faith traditions. His latest books include Graced Vulnerability: A Theology of Childhood (Pilgrim Press, 2005); Responsive Labor: A Theology of Work ( Westminster John Knox, 2006), and The Lord and Giver of Life: Perspectives in Constructive Pneumatology (Westminster John Knox, 2008) for which he was the editor. He is currently writing two book manuscripts. One is a short introduction to Christian hope and the other a theology of human sexuality
