Michael Brautigam is Lecturer in Theology and Ministry at Melbourne School of Theology.
"Adolf Schlatter was a giant of German theology at the turn of the twentieth century who combined painstaking biblical scholarship with a unique grasp of theological issues in a way rivaled perhaps only by Bultmann. Brautigam does a splendid job retrieving Schlatter's Christology as a resource for contemporary theological reflection."
--Johannes Zachhuber, Professor of Historical and Systematic Theology, University of Oxford
"This thoroughly researched and enthusiastic study offers a captivating introduction to the world in which Schlatter worked, and while it then proceeds to major on one key aspect of his Christology it never allows us to forget that beyond it there lies a rich and unexplored hinterland where every confessional tradition might dig with profit."
--Donald Macleod, Retired Professor of Systematic Theology
"This volume offers an unsurpassed introduction to the work of Adolf Schlatter, one of the most influential yet most neglected voices in modern theology. Brautigam provides not only a contoured analysis of Schlatter's engagements with exegesis, dogmatics, and ethics, focusing particularly on Schlatter's Christology, but also articulates carefully both the historical context and the contemporary relevance and significance of the work of Schlatter. This is a very fine study and comes highly recommended."
--Paul Nimmo, Professor, Chair in Systematic Theology, University of Aberdeen
"Adolf Schlatter was a renowned biblical scholar and theologian whose pupils include several of the leading figures in twentieth-century theology. In this admirably clear, informed, and sympathetic study, Michael Brautigam explores [Schlatter's] lifelong preoccupation with Christology. As Brautigam shows, Schlatter's combination of relational and substantive themes in characterizing the person of Jesus continues to merit attention."
--David Fergusson, Professor of Divinity and Principal of New College, University of Edinburgh
"Finally, an English-language monograph on Schlatter that takes the measure of his genius and theological depth. Michael Brautigam limpidly and shrewdly details factors that explain the emergence, erudition, and profundity of Schlatter's christological synthesis."
--Robert W. Yarbrough, Professor of New Testament, Covenant Theological Seminary
