Christology : a biblical, historical, and systematic study of Jesus Christ by Gerald O'Collins( Book )

34 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and Italian and held by 1,107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Recent years have seen the publication of various sensationalist books on Jesus that are supported neither by the New Testament witness nor by mainline Christian beliefs. This book critically examines the best biblical and historical scholarship before tackling head-on some of the key questions of systematic Christology: does orthodox faith present Jesus the man as deficient and depersonalized? Is his sinlessness compatible with the exercise of a free human will? Does up-to-date exegesis challenge his virginal conception and personal resurrection? Can one reconcile Jesus' role as universal Saviour with the truth and values to be found in other religions? What should the feminist movement highlight in presenting Jesus? This integral Christology is built around the resurrection of the crucified Jesus, highlights love as the key to redemption, and proposes a synthesis of the divine presence through Jesus. Clear, balanced, and accessible, this book should be valued by any student reading systematic theology, anyone training for the ministry in all denominations, as well as interested general readers."--Jacket

Biblical experts examine the scriptural roots of trinitarian doctrine, patristic scholars correct those who continue to misinterpret the trinitarian teaching of the Cappadocians and Augustine, and five scholars examine systematic and foundational issues like the viability of social models for the Trinity. The volume ends with a study of the Trinity in art and the challenge of preaching the Trinity today.

Salvation for all : God's other peoples by Gerald O'Collins( Book )

15 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and Italian and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines in depth and at length what the Old Testament and the New Testament hold about the salvation of God's "other peoples" The Bible repeatedly bears witness to the universal scope of divine love for all human beings, and to the chances of salvation available to them. Since the Israelites experienced for many centuries, both at home and abroad, the religion and culture of numerous other peoples, the Old Testament texts have much to say, both positively and negatively, about the religious prospects and destiny of these peoples. In its second half, this book scrutinizes what Jesus, the evangelists, Paul, and the Letter to the Hebrews indicate about God's loving designs for all human beings. In the end, O'Collins breaks new ground by developing the universal presence of the risen Jesus (along with the Holy Spirit) and his role as universal Wisdom, and the full teaching of the Letter to the Hebrews on the possibility of faith for all people
Jesus our redeemer : a Christian approach to salvation by Gerald O'Collins( Book )

10 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jesus Our Redeemer examines what it means when Christians call Jesus their 'Redeemer' or 'Saviour'. It tackles such questions as: How can redemptive events in the past (Christ's life, death, and resurrection) bring about saving effects in the present? Why do human beings need redemption, both individually and collectively? What images of God are implied by the saving action of God and by human needs? Gerald O'Collins SJ draws on the scriptures, Christian hymns and texts for worship, literature, the visual arts, and other sources. He examines four major models of how redemption through Christ has been thought to work: theories of deliverance, penal substitution, sacrifice, and transforming love. He concludes by considering the outworking of salvation in the life of the Church, the situation of non-Christians, and the final consummation of human life and the created world at the end of time
Jesus : a portrait by Gerald O'Collins( Book )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Much of what one sees or reads about Jesus is deliberately sensationalist or evasive. Producers and writers raise issues of merely historical interest, highlight trivial matters, or allege that cover-ups" have hidden the "real truth" for many centuries. They will do anything but face the challenge in the ultimate religious drama created by the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth."--Gerald O'Collins SJ. There are many books about Jesus, but few attempt to tell us what he was

The legacy of John Paul II by Gerald O'Collins( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Legacy of John Paul II responds to the challenge of the assimilation of Vatican II in helping readers and students to come to grips with the important themes in John Paul II's theology. This is important as his influence is already as great as that of almost any other Pope and his teachings and writings need to be studied carefully by Christians of all denominations." "John Paul II's writings were as prolific as his canonisations were vigorous. They range from topics as important as ethics, politics, theology and comparative religion. He published a number of philosophical books before becoming Pope. All of this is covered in this book."--Jacket
