Abstract and Keywords

The introduction outlines the framework of The Oxford Handbook of Christology. This volume offers a comprehensive approach towards the theological study of the nature and role of Jesus Christ. It is divided into seven sections, which bring together the latest research in biblical, patristic, mediaeval, Reformation, and systematic Christology. The Handbook concludes with sections concerning Christology and the arts and Christological norms. This volume provides an invaluable resource and reference for scholars, students, and general readers interested in the study of Christology. The book highlights the constants of Christian thought about Jesus Christ over the past two millennia and simultaneously it makes for extensive exploration of the particular challenges of Christological beliefs in each century. Faith in the divinity of Christ and in the work which this divinity enables him to achieve is the uniting feature of all Christian faith.

Keywords: Christ, Christology, Christian thought, faith, divinity
