Acknowledged as one of the leading contemporary Catholic Christologists, Thomas G. Weinandy has collected in one volume his most important contributions to our understanding of Jesus as the incarnate Son of God and Saviour of the world. In four distinct sections he examines some of the biblical revelation concerning Jesus, historical and systematic issues in Christology, contemporary Christological questions and concerns, and the importance of Jesus within our Christian life.
These essays manifest Weinandy's considerable biblical knowledge, extensive understanding of the historical and doctrinal Christological tradition, judicious discernment of current Christological debates, and fresh, innovative analysis of today's pressing Christological concerns. All of this is achieved within, and so advances, the beauty and truth of the Catholic faith. Jesus: Essays in Christology confirms Weinandy's prominent place in the Catholic academic community.
Thomas G. Weinandy has spent most of his Capuchin priestly life as a teacher. He has taught at various Catholic universities in the United States and for twelve years lectured in history and doctrine within the Faculty of Theology at the University of Oxford, UK. Most recently he was executive director for the Secretariat of Doctrine at the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. Father Weinandy recently received the prestigious Pro Ecclesia et Pontifi-ce medal from Pope Francis for his dedicated work on behalf of the church and the pontiff. Upon completing his sabbatical in 2014, he will take up teaching positions in Washington, DC and Rome.
