not yet rated|write a review
The New Testament doctrine of the dual nature of Jesus Christ--his historical existence as a man and his simultaneous reality as a god--has stimulated a resurgence of christological studies by twentieth-century scholars and theologians. This bibliography is the first work to provide a thorough critical examination of this important body of modern scholarship. Containing more than 1,900 annotated entries, it will be an essential reference guide for anyone with an interest in early Christianity, Christian doctrine, or biblical studies. In his introduction, Hultgren summarizes trends in New Testament christology as reflected in twentieth-century European, British, and American works. Sensitively arranged in subject categories, the bibliography begins with nine chapters relating to the foundations of christological studies. The remaining forty-one chapters are divided into three sections dealing with specific topics: the titles given to Christ, the treatment of Christ by New Testament writers, and primary christological themes. Many of the entries include extensive commentary as well as passages quoted from the sources. Authors, titles, and subjects are listed in comprehensive indexes. Reflecting both the depth and breadth of Dr. Hultgren's scholarly analysis, this new bibliography is an appropriate choice for New Testament scholars as well as library reference collections.

?The strength and particular value of this bibliography is that Hultgren keeps his focus on the doctrine of Christology and does not introduce extraneous material about Jesus. After a critical introduction, which assesses Literature and Trends in the Study of New Testament Christology, ' the material is arranged in four categories: Orientation and Christological Foundations' Christological Titles' (i.e., Messiah, Son of Man, etc.); Christologies of New Testament Writers'; and Christological Themes' (e.g., the preexistence of Christ, Incarnation, etc.). These four major categories have sub-sections in which entries are arranged alphabetically by author. Citations include periodical articles as well as books. Each of the 1,917 entries is annotated. The clear, concise annotations are descriptive rather than evaluative, but Hultgren's summarizes the material in such a way that readers will understand the value of the item for the study of the topic. Hultgren's selection is thorough and balanced, representing many different theological perspectives. Most of the material is from the 1950s through the 1980s, with emphasis on recent work. Author/editor/compiler, title, and subject indexes complete the volume. Highly recommended for seminary libraries and for college libraries that support study of the New Testament or of Christian doctrine at either graduate or undergraduate level.?-Choice
