This book brings together leading theologians and ethicists to explore the neglected relationship between Christology and ethics. The contributors to this volume work to overcome the tendency toward disciplinary xenophobia, considering such questions as these:
^^What is the relation between faithful teaching about the reality of Christ and teaching faithfulness to the way of Christ?
^How is christological doctrine related to theological judgments about normative human agency?
^With renewed attention and creative reformulation, they argue, we can discover fresh ways of tending to these perennial questions.
^"This collection of essays does not offer the definitive guide for charting, much less explicating, the relation between Christology and ethics, nor was it intended to be such a map. Rather, collectively these essays identify some landmarks along an expansive horizon that may suggest some areas for future exploration."
