This book is an attempt to examine and evaluate the Christology of Origen. It should not be imagined that his views are of no relevance today; on the contrary, he develops to their logical conclusions various lines of thought deriving from the traditional view of Jesus Christ as both Divine and human, and thus shows that these conclusions cannot be reconciled with each other.

Contents: The book successively discusses the way in which the Word of God fulfils the Father's creative purpose, then the
way in which He reveals God's nature to human beings, then the way in which He can be regarded as having become incarnate,
then the two different ways in which He can be known by His disciples, and finally the way in which He reconciles human beings
to the Father.
