About the Authors
  • Through the intensely intimate relationship that arises between God and humans in the incarnation of the Word in Christ, God gives us the gift of God's own life. This simple claim provides the basis for Kathryn Tanner's powerful study of the centrality of Jesus Christ for all Christian thought and life: if the divine and the human are united in Christ, then Jesus can be seen as key to the pattern that organizes the whole, even while God's ways remain beyond our grasp. Drawing on the history of Christian thought to develop an innovative Christ-centered theology, this book sheds fresh light on major theological issues such as the imago dei, the relationship between nature and grace, the Trinity's implications for human community, and the Spirit's manner of working in human lives. Originally delivered as Warfield Lectures at Princeton Theological Seminary, it offers a creative and compelling contribution to contemporary theology.

    • Uses ecumenical sources, spanning Protestant and Catholic theology, as well as Western and Eastern Orthodox theology
    • Emphasises the relevance of the history of Christian thought for contemporary theology
    • Essential reading for systematic theologians

    "Christ the Key is a shining light in a systematic theology. Not only is it a creative offering that avoids the ruts of the countless systematic texts that simply tell us what other theologians think, but it actually offers a distinctive and rich perspective of its own. This is a book that theologians will return to often and that all pastors should take the time to delve into. It will not disappoint." --Word & World
