Jesus Symbol of God
By: Roger Haight
Jesus Symbol of God surveys scriptural data, the key moments in the development of doctrine, and the distinctive horizons of our contemporary world to develop a comprehensive and systematic Christology for our time. The task of Christology is to explain what it means to say Jesus is the bearer and revealer of God in the Christian Community, the decisive mediation of God’s salvation – or, in other words, the symbol of God.
