Summary: At the heart of all ecumenical dialogue between Catholics and Evangelicals is their fundamental agreement on Christology - their common confession of Jesus Christ as Son of God and unique Savior of the human race. In this book Edward T. Oakes surveys Christian teaching on the person and nature of Christ and looks at many doctrinal and historical issues essential to the study of Christology. Drawing on recent scholarship in New Testament and patristic Christology, key medieval theologians, major Protestant voices, contemporary Catholic theologians, and magisterial statements from Vatican II, Oakes presents two millennia of thinking on the Christian paradox of an infinite God who is a finite man - or, in the words of Jesuit poet Gerard Manley Hopkins, "Infinity dwindled to infancy." The book concludes with a summary of the teaching on Christ that arose from the first seven ecumenical councils and a helpful glossary of technical terms frequently used in christological debate.

Inhaltsangabe: At the heart of all ecumenical dialogue between Catholics and Evangelicals is their fundamental agreement on Christology — and a common understanding and confession of the lordship of Jesus Christ as the unique Savior of the human race. Infinity Dwindled to Infancy provides a broad survey of doctrinal and historical issues at play in Christology.
Drawing from a wide range of sources — contemporary New Testament scholarship and patristic Christology, key medieval theologians, major Protestant voices, Catholic theologians, and recent magisterial statements from Vatican II — Edward T. Oakes presents two millennia of thinking on one of the great paradoxes at the heart of Christian faith: “an infinite God who is finite man . . . in short, Infinity dwindled to infancy.”
