'The Making of Modern German Christology' is a reliable and readable introduction to the central themes and personalities of modern German Christology. Germany and northern Switzerland have been the source of a fertile theological tradition since the beginning of the Protestant Reformation in the sixteenth century. Moreover, the Enlightenment seems to have had its deepest theological impact in Germany and on one area of theology in particular: the person and work of Christ. Now that chapter in church history seems to be coming to a close with a shift in theological emphasis away from the Continent to North America. This book, revised and updated from an earlier British edition, is therefore a survey of that major chapter in modern theology for students and informed laypeople. Alister McGrath teaches theology at Oxford University and at Regent College, Vancouver, B.C. His many books include 'Justitia Dei: A History of the Christian Doctrine of Justification', 'Luther's Theology of the Cross' and 'Bridge Building: Effective Christian Apologetics'. He is also the editor of 'The Blackwell Encyclopedia of Modern Christian Thought'.
