The Present-Day Christological Debate
Not since the early centuries of the church has controversy raged so widely over the crucial question of the person of Christ. Not only radical Protestants like John Robinson and the authors of The Myth of God Incarnate, but also influential Roman Catholic theologians like Schillebeeckx and Kung, demand that traditional categories be abandoned in order to speak to the modern mind. Pannenberg and Moltmann have also made important contributions to the debate. Klass Runia, who is closely acquainted with contemporary continental theology, discusses the central emphases of these different theologians, and also how far they represent the apostolic faith.
