The doctrine of the person of Jesus Christ must always stand central to the Christian faith. "It was because he was who he was that Jesus Christ did what he did," says Fuller in the opening sentences of this massive, learned and important survey of the place of Christ in Christian experience, confession and belief. As Fuller sees it: "the Church's Christology was a response to its total encounter with Jesus, not only in his earthly history but also in the Church's continuing life."

The Author shows the continuity between the historical Jesus and the witness and message of the post-resurrection church. Fuller explores how this has been obscured in New Testament scholarship. But at the same time he applies the vigorous 'traditio-historical' criticism which yields many positive results as seen in this book of first-class scholarship.
