The structure of the book and of the individual essays follows a pattern of recovery (analysis of the tradition), critique (consideration of special problems), and reconstruction (distinctive Christologies in the contemporary American context).Part I, devoted to historical recovery, treats Jesus of Nazareth and the significance of historical Jesus research for Christology today- Christological developments resulting in the conciliar definitions of Nicaea and Chalcedon- and diverse conceptions of Christs redemption in the early and medieval church. Part II treats four problems in modern debate: religious pluralism and Christian exclusivist claims- theological anti-Semitism embedded in Christological formulations- legitimation of male privilege via appeals to the masculinity of Jesus and Christs headship of the church- the use of the Christ symbol to legitimate colonialism and racial exploitation.

Finally, Part III offers two examples of contemporary Christologies of social transformation: mujerista Christology and black Christology.Contributors: Lisa Sowle Cahill, Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza, Roger Haight, Ada Maria Isasi-Diaz, Robert Lassalle-Klein, William Loewe, John Pawlikowski, Jamie Phelps, Rosemary Radford Ruether, Gerard Sloyan, and Tatha Wiley.
