Christ Without Absolutes: A Study of the Christology of Ernst Troeltsch
A Study of the Christology of Ernst Troeltsch
Can Christians continue to worship Jesus Christ as the full, final, and "absolute" revelation of God in an age of historical relativism, an expanding universe, and the impinging of other world faiths on Western culture? This bold and penetrating study goes to the heart of the debate between traditionalists and liberals such as Ernst Troeltsch who would answer "no." Coakley argues that a liberal approach to Christology in fact opens up many new and liberating possibilities for the future of Christianity.
