Product description

Set of two books: Jesus. An Experiement in Christology and Christ: The Christian Experience in the Modern World by Edward Schillebeeckx.

Christ: The Christian Experience in the Modern World is signed by Schillebeeckx. Both hardback books are in very good condition. Minimal shelf wear to covers. Jesus. An Experiement in Christology has minmal foxing to page edges, Christ: The Christian Experience in the Modern World has notably more. Both are internally clean and bright with tight binding. Dimensions listed below are for the set of two together.

Jesus. An Experiement in Christology:

Hailed as 'Schillebeekx's lifework', this monumental Christology is a unique synthesis of historical interpretation and theological reflection, which will surely remain a classic for many years.

The man Jesus is the starting-point of Schillebeeckx's reflection: 'There are no ghosts or gods in disguise wandering around in our history; only people. What is peculiar, unique, about this person, Jesus, is what I seek to discover. The question of his ultimate identity governs the whole of this enquiry'. This work is prinicipally concerned with the course taken by dogma in the early Church. It searches for signs which may be able to direct man's quest for salvation - however currently defined - towards the answer of Christian faith: God's definitive saving activity in Jesus of Nazareth. In reconstructing the way in which the first disciples travelled from confidence in Jesus to faith in Christ, Professor Schillebeeckx seeks to discover whar a Christological belief in Jesus can intelligibly signify for people today.

Christ: The Christian Experience in the Modern World:

In this enormous volume, substantially larger than Jesus. An Experiment in Christology, which was first published by Collins in 1979, the focus shifts from the historical person of Jesus of Nazareth to the experience of Christ in the church. Here, perhaps even more than in its predecessor, the author's pastoral concern comes fully into view as he seeks to work out, in a sometimes apparently trackless world, where old signposts become blurred or are postiviely misleading, a new way forward for believing Christians who also want to remain faithful to the truth.

Despite the size of the book, its fundamental theme is comparatively simple. As a result of their experience, New Testament Christians found grace and did so ina variety of ways; and they saw this grace as taking the form of salvation from God in Jesus. Our task must be to understand as deeply as possible the nature of that experience, of grace and salvation, so that we may see how it is found - and acted upon - in our very different modern world.
