With simplicity and elegance, Tanner sketches a 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. Tanner's work was developed from the Scottish Journal of Theology lectures in 1999 in Edinburgh.

"To be a witness and disciple of Jesus, every Christian has to figure out for him - or herself what Christianity is all about...This book is a contribution to such an effort, understood not as a bleak and dry academic exercise but as an attempt to meet an essential demand of everyday Christian living.
