Book Description

In this work, originally published in 1968, the distinguished theologian James M. Gustafson asks the fundamental question, "What is the significance of Jesus Christ for the moral life?"

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » Professor Gustafson, of the Yale Divinity School, addressed the question of the significance of Christ for the moral life, as claimed by theologians. His interest is not with the questions of Christian ethics raised by current controversy, but with the more persistent problems ranging over the past centuries. Five traditional designations of Christ are used as focal points around which the views of a variety of theologians are considered: as Creator and Redeemer, as Sanctifier, as Justifier, as Pattern, and as teacher. The argument is heavy with reference to the works of theologians, from Augustine through Wesley to the Niebuhis and Karl Barth, and one of the important values in the book lies in this comparative examination of the position taken by these writers. A concluding chapter offers a constructive statement of the author's own position, in which the elements of Christian hope and Christian freedom are central. Primarily for other theologians.
