Publisher's Description

In The Work of Christ Robert Letham shapes his discussion around the threefold office of Christ as prophet, priest and king. Within this framework he explores the issues of Christ and the Word of God, the nature and theories of the atonement, and the cosmic and corporate dimensions of the mediatorial kingship of Christ. At crucial points the viewpoints of significant Christian thinkers, from the church fathers to comtemporary theolgians and biblical scholars, are introduced and brought into the conversation. Lucidly written and clearly presented, this is a soundly orthodox and engaging presentation of what Christ has done. It is a welcome starting point for students of theology.

Author Bio

Robert Letham (Ph.D., University of Aberdeen), formerly senior minister of Emmanuel Presbyterian Church, Wilmington, Delaware, teaches at Wales Evangelical School of Theology and continues as visiting professor of theology at Reformed Theological Seminary, Washington, D.C., and adjunct professor of systematic theology at Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia. He is the author of a number of books, including (InterVarsity Press, 1993), (2001) and (2004) (both Presbyterian & Reformed), and (Mentor, 2007).

Editorial Reviews

"This series has been around for over a decade now and has established itself as providing learned yet accessible treatments of key topics in systematic theology. The authors are not only fine theological thinkers, they are also passionate churchmen with a love for God's people and a desire to see the church grow in her knowledge of grace. Each volume blends exegesis, theological synthesis and judicious dialogue with the history of theology to provide an excellent treatment of the chosen topic. Highly recommended for thoughtful Christians who want to deepen their knowledge of Christian theology."
"Read everything in the IVP Contours of Theology series. Pure gold."

    Heres the book on the doctrine of Christ you need if you really want to dig deep, both about the doctrine itself and its historical development. Frankly, it taught me so much. Its part of the respected Contours of Christian Theology series edited by Gerald Bray and published by IVP.

    I thought the authors approach was unique and ideal. He took most of the main concepts of the doctrine and traced the debate that formalized them in church history. In fact, he took these concepts in the order that they were debated. Along the way, he fully explained each doctrine, the viewpoints that fall short of an accurate Christology, and a wonderful definition of some of the more obscure theological terms. Though he covered concepts that are barely mentioned in many theological works, I found him easy-to-read and follow. In short, I loved this book.

    He divides the book into two sections. Part one goes from the Gospels to Nicea, which he calls very God of very God and traces out the deity of Christ. In this section, he will cover the virgin birth, the preexistence of Christ, Christ as the Son of God, and the Jesus of history and the faith. Those last two chapters of that section I found to be profound and so helpful to me.

    Part two goes from Chalcedon on through most major theological questions on the doctrine of Christ, which he calls very God, very man. In this section, he discussed the Incarnation, the fact of Jesus being perfect both as God and man. He beautifully explained the Kenosis of Christ, as well as the sinlessness of Christ. I have several pages with a multitude of underlined sentences that were greatly illuminating for me.

    I wouldnt necessarily call this the first book to pick up if you were studying the doctrine of Christ, especially if it was your first time to do so; but if you really want to dig out this doctrine, you cannot pass by this great book. Ill put it in the must-by category for sure!

    I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.
