Christology Bibliography

Reading: Wall Street Journal
Enjoying: chips & salsa
Listening: The Stereophonics "Dakota"

I've had the privilege of spending the past couple of weeks looking at a few of the lines of the Apostle's Creed with our Sunday School class - "I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; who was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary..." Here's a few of the works I've found useful in studying on the subject.

On the creed in general:

Heidelberg Catechism

Ursinus, Zacharius Commentary on the Heidelberg Catechism trans. Williard (Phillipsburg, NJ: P & R Publishing, 1852).

Witsius, Herman Dissertations on the Apostle's Creed (Phillipsburg, NJ: P & R Publishing, 1993).

On Christology in particular:

Athanasius De Incarnatione Verbi Dei (New York, NY: Macmillan Company, 1946).
(With an Intro by C. S. Lewis!!)

Daniels, Richard The Christology of John Owen (Grand Rapids, MI: Reformation Heritage Books, 2004).

Dunn, James D.G. Christology in the Making: A NT Inquiry into The Origins of the Doctrine of the Incarnation (Philadelphia, PA: Westminster Press, 1980).

Evans, C. Stephen "The Self-Emptying of Love: Some Thoughts on Kenotic Christology" ed. Davis, Kendall & Collins The Incarnation (Oxford University Press, 2002).

Horton, Michael S. Lord and Servant: A Covenant Christology (Westminster John Knox Press, 2005).

Macleod, Donald The Person of Christ ed. G. Bray Contours of Christian Theology Series (Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 1998).

Peterson, David The Word Became Flesh: Evangelicals and the Incarnation (Paternoster Press, 2003).

Spencer, Stephen Roberts Reformed Scholasticism in Medieval Perspective: Thomas Aquinas and Francois Turretini on the Incarnation (Ph.D. Dissertation, Michigan State University, 1988).

Spurgeon, Charles Haddon Good Tidings of Great Joy: Christ's Incarnation (London: Passmore & Alabaster, 1901).

Wright, N. T. "Jesus' Self-Understanding" ed. Davis, Kendall & Collins The Incarnation (Oxford University Press, 2002).

Vos, Geerhardus The Self-Disclosure of Jesus (Phillipsburg, NJ: P & R Publications, 1953).

I know that I don't just speak for myself when I say that I really enjoy the posts where you include a bibliography.

I have scores of questions, but I'll limit it to two.

Do you find Athanasius to be somewhat Platonic or Neo-Platonic?

Would you read a Lutheran work on Christology? or better: do you think you could benefit from a Lutheran work on Christology, possibly by just ignoring a few things?

Alright, alright! The second question is loaded. I'm wondering what you are going to do, either in your own mind or also in your SS class, with the extra calvinisticum and what appears to be the novel conclusions the Reformed drew from it with respect to Christ's mediation. I'm not so much wondering what you do with the historical problem, I'm wondering what thoughts you have on the Reformed take on the communicatio, where you see it in Scripture and how it helps you to answer Heidelberg 1 a little better.

Transplanted from the artic blight of Minnesota to the sunny paradise of SoCal, I am attending school and learning to say "dude." I like to think of myself as equal parts surf rash, Batman, heavy metal, Levinas, poetic license, and reformational. Other than creating blund blogs, I enjoy reading, sporting, and socializing with serious and funny people.

Rowling is the new dreamweaver. She is reigniting literature and fantasy as we know it.
Tolkien is the undisputed favorite. We have not yet seen a match for his philogistic skill.
