Jesus Christ for the Modern World

The Christology of the Catholic Tübingen School


Douglas McCready

This book examines the efforts of the Catholic Tübingen School to develop a Christology accessible to the modern world yet faithful to Christian tradition. Tübingen's consideration of the person and work of Jesus Christ provides a valuable resource for those seeking to construct a Christology compatible both with tradition and modern needs and ways of thinking. Tübingen Christology has been characterized not only by a recognition of the necessary tension between traditional and modern, but also by an appreciation of history that has avoided historicism and immanentism and a concern to retain the intimate link between Christ and his Church.
Contents: The book examines the christological methods and conclusions of the Catholic Tübingen School developed during the 19th and 20th centuries.
