Content

Contemporary focus on the relativity of perspective has stripped Christology of some modern epistemological “fig leaves.” This exposure has forced the focus of Christology back to its apostolic roots in confession and biblical genres in expression. This renewed focus has been manifested in Triune perspectives of Christian identity and witness. The unit gives attention to this shift in a context of modern challenges to Christian faith and theological opportunities for contemporary expressions of Christian identity and witness.
