 About the Book 

There are at least three factors which cannot be ignored in a modern Christology- the problem of history, the impact of Marxism and the rise of the contextual theology, and the new awareness of the value of world religions. The purpose of this bookMoreThere are at least three factors which cannot be ignored in a modern Christology- the problem of history, the impact of Marxism and the rise of the contextual theology, and the new awareness of the value of world religions. The purpose of this book is to look at how these factors can affect the shape of Christology and how Christology can cope with them. This book analyses the perspective, emphasis and structure of the Christologies of Bultmann, post-Bultmannians, liberation theology and minjung theology which have been formed in different cultures. It also establishes a connection between socio-economic liberation and salvation, and examines the relation of Jesus and other saviours in different cultures and religion.
