Infinity Dwindled to Infancy: A Catholic and Evangelical Christology
At the heart of all ecumenical dialogue between Catholics and Evangelicals is their fundamental agreement on Christology and a common understanding and confession of the lordship of Jesus Christ as the unique Savior of the human race. Infinity Dwindled to Infancy provides a broad survey of doctrinal and historical issues at play in Christology.
Drawing from a wide range of sources contemporary New Testament scholarship and patristic Christology, key medieval theologians, major Protestant voices, Catholic theologians, and recent magisterial statements from Vatican II Edward T. Oakes presents two millennia of thinking on one of the great paradoxes at the heart of Christian faith: an infinite God who is finite man . . . in short, Infinity dwindled to infancy.
