Reviews

The well-integrated chapters present an up-to-date and accessible introduction to both Christology and modern New Testament studies. Loewe clearly addresses the contemporary relevance of the issues raised at Nicaea and Chalcedon. His Lonerganian soteriology addresses the contemporary concerns of a collegiate audience. He capitalizes on his years of experience in the classroom to provide the necessary background for undergraduate readers to appreciate the complexities of the patristic concerns and modern scholarship.Maureen A. Tilley, Florida State University Professor Loewe has done undergraduate students and teachers a service. Well familiar with the outlook and questions of college people, he meets them where they are in exploring with them the mystery of Jesus Christ. The task is not easy but he does it well.Gerard Sloyan, Professor Emeritus of Religion, Temple University The clarity of explanation that Loewe achieves is laudable. An excellent book for the undergraduate classroom.Religious Studies Review
