This is a brief and accessible book on Christology. I think it was written in the late 90s or so and Johnson
probably was trying to be more "mainstream" after the more controversial She Who Is. The first half or so
is about the life and ministry of Jesus, the spirituality of his followers in the Church, and the culmination
in his death and resurrection. Then Johnson goes into the recent developments in Christology. Unsurprisingly,
she favors a low ascending Christology as advocated by Rahner in 1951. Rahner's transcendental approach
(using a philosophy of the human person emphasizing freedom and knowledge leading to God) is then
followed by Schillebeeckx and the narrative approach, which heavily uses recent biblical scholarship
and hermeneutics such as the perspective of liberation. Schillebeeckx wrote Jesus: An Experiment In
Christology and Christ: The Experience of Christ As Lord, but also the earlier Christ the Sacrament of
the Encounter With God, which used more traditional philosophy as its basis. Johnson is surprisingly
balanced, as the chapter on justice looks at John Paul's Redemptor Hominis as an example of descending
Christology and the American Bishops' pastoral letters on peace and economics as ascending Christology.
Both are needed for the witness of the Church. Where the balance is lost, of course, is the chapter on
feminism, which resembles She Who Is and Quest For the Living God. Then there's liberation, which
focuses on Sobrino, Segundo and L. Boff but surprisingly leaves out Gutierrez. The final chapter looks
at theological pluralism, with the controversial views of John Hick and Paul Knitter (this was before Roger
Haight's later work and the Jacques Dupuis controversy) and the ecology inspired by Pierre Teilhard de
Chardin. There's also a chapter on the problem of evil with Jurgen Moltmann, who advocates that God
suffers in himself and not only in Christ's human nature, against the traditional doctrine of impassibility,
and the response of Schillebeeckx which differs from Moltmann's approach. There's also a brief discussion
of Rahner's theory of the anonymous Christian and the responses of von Balthasar and from the other end,
Hans Kung.
  • Nothing personal
It was helpful in writing essays in my Christology class. It was a quick read and I was entertained with the readings.
  • Xcorn
written excellently
  • Dalallador
Excellent
This is a wonderful book by an inspired theologian. Hers is a nonfundamentalist approach to a subject often presented so poorly. If you want to truly deepen your personal relationship with Jesus this is the book to read. In fact, read every book by Elizabeth Johnson you can.
