Reviews - What do our customers think?
Comprehensive If One-Sided  Feb 22, 2005
Walter Kasper was, prior to his elevation as Bishop by John Paul II, a professor of theology. John Paul recently named Kasper a cardinal and he currently is the Vatican's chief spokesman for Jewish-Christian dialogue.

Kasper's JESUS THE CHRIST (1974) remains one of the more comprehensive surveys of Christology in print. All of the central issues in Christology are touched upon. The focus is on the New Testament teaching, but there is discussion of later doctrinal developments and Kasper interacts with other theologians (such as Bultmann and Tillich).

What is most surprising is how liberal this work is. Kasper doesn't have much confidence in the accuracy of the New Testament. Like most of contemporary Catholic biblical scholarship, the infancy narratives are dismissed as mostly unhistorical. All the "nature miracles" (walking on water, raising the dead, the transfiguration, the multiplication of the loaves, etc.) are also unhistorical "legends." Kasper then proceeds to discuss Jesus' healings and exorcisms, the authenticity of some he appears to accept, but his subsequent discussion of the theology of miracles makes you wonder if he believes Jesus performed miracles in the way commonly assumed. Kasper believes that Jesus had some insight into the salvific meaning of his death, but how and why he isn't sure. Was the tomb empty? We can't be sure, but what really matters is the apostolic preaching of the risen Christ.

It's too bad that Kasper didn't interact with more conservative writers. Most authors Kasper discusses are German, and of a fairly liberal perspective. English writers that could have provided balance, such as F.F. Bruce, aren't mentioned. The end result is a comprehensive, if one-sided discussion of Christology.
Thoughtful and Valuable to all Contemporary Christians  Apr 30, 2000
Walter Kasper provides a valuable exploration of Christology in this work. His efforts do much to counter the recent practice of divorcing the humanity and divinity of Christ by laying out biblical and traditional sources for their connection and then explaining the importance of the incarnational mystery to people in the contemporary world.
