Gerald O'Collins continues to challenge the contemporary publishing trend for sensationalist books on Jesus that are supported neither by the New Testament witness nor by mainline Christian beliefs.

Contemporary Christian music (or CCM-and occasionally "inspirational music") is a genre of modern popular music which is lyrically focused on matters concerned with the Christian faith.

Contemporary Christian music (or CCM-and occasionally "inspirational music") is a genre of modern popular music which is lyrically focused on matters concerned with the Christian faith. It formed as those affected by the 1960s Jesus movement revival began to express themselves in a more contemporary style of music than the hymns, Gospel and Southern gospel music that was prevalent in the church at the time. Today, the term is typically used to refer to pop, rock, or praise & worship styles.

Gerald O'Collins is an Australian Jesuit, now semi-retired. He has written over 40 theological books on issues pertaining to the resurrection, Christology, and fundamental theology. Of his two most known books on Christology (the other titled "Christology")I found this to be the easier and better read. Both are good.

His approach is to examine important questions surrounding Christ and then weigh various answers critically. He then provides his own view, always graciously recognizing the works of others, but not shying from disagreement. Topics include Christ's self consciousness, the issue of historicity of the gospels, reasons for Christ's death, the resurrection and the ongoing significance of Christ today, among others. He even looks at the significance of the shroud of Turin. One can see the influence of the German theological tradition (both pre and post-Vatican II era) in his ideas.

I recommend it as a good introduction to the field of Christology from a modern Catholic perspective. Probably most suitable for upper class college students and grad students, though an educated non-specialist might find it interesting.

Despite the product listing, this book is not in the Readings in Moral Theology series from the same publisher. Number two in that series is The Distinctiveness of Christian Ethics (Readings in Moral Theology) (v. 2). The book under review here is the second volume in the Introducing Catholic Theology series. (Some other first-rate books in the Introducing Catholic Theology series are: Thinking About God: and Mystery of the Trinity (Introducing Catholic Theology, Vol 4) and Revelation and Its Interpretation (Introducing Catholic Theology).)

I use a chapter of this with undergraduates. It is a very successful assignment. They like its clarity and its familiar form. I recommend it for those studying on their own or in groups.
