Rarely, if ever, has christology focused on the changing cultural paradigms that have deeply influenced the development of human knowledge. This unique volume by Colin Greene reverses that trend and in line with modern cultural theory explores the interfaces between successive cultural contexts and the story of Jesus.Starting with an examination of the three main interpretive approaches to Jesus -- cosmological christology, political christology, and anthropological christology -- Greene moves on to concentrate on the subtle and complex linkages between christology and the sociopolitical paradigms that have bolstered the epistemological assumptions of modernity.

Greene then brings his book to a stirring close with a creative exploration into how christology might once again provide us with a Christ-centered vision of reality.
