With simplicity and elegance Tanner sketches an historically informed vision of the faith: Chapter 1 recovers strands of early Christian accounts of Jesus and his significance for a very different age. Chapter 2 situates Christology in a religious vision of the whole cosmos, while chapter 3 lays out the ethical and political implications of the vision. Chapter 4 speculates about the "end" of things in Christ. Tanners work was developed from the Scottish Journal of Theology Lectures in 1999 in Edinburgh.
