The Way of Jesus Christ discusses the following topics: 1. The symbol of the way embodies the aspect of process and brings out christology's alignment towards its goal. This symbol can comprehend Christ's way from his birth in the Spirit and his baptism in the Spirit to his self-surrender on Golgotha. It also makes it possible to understand the path of Christ as the way leading from his resurrection to his parousia-the way he takes in the Spirit to Israel, to the nations, and into the breadth and depth of the cosmos. 2. The symbol of the way makes us aware that every human christology is historically conditioned and limited. Every human christology is a 'christology of the way, ' not yet a 'christology of the home country, ' a christology of faith, not yet a christology of sight. So christology is no more than the beginning of eschatology; and eschatology, as the Christian faith understands it, is always the consummation of christology. 3. Finally, but not least important: every way is an invitation. A way is something to be followed. 'The way of Jesus Christ' is not merely a christological category. It is an ethical category too. Anyone who enters upon Christ's way will discover who Jesus really is; and anyone who really believes in Jesus and the Christ of God will follow him along the way he himself took. Christology and christopraxis find one another in the full and completed knowledge of Christ. This christology links dogmatics and ethics in closer detail than in the previous volumes.
Employing useful case studies, his groundbreaking approach helps students understand what theology is--and shows them that they are participants in creating an ongoing, vigorous theology that will remain at the center of their faith for the rest of their lives.--Kevin Vanhoozer, Research Professor of Systematic Theology, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

Jesus Christ is a well-known, worldwide figure and is synonymous with human salvation. Yet the man himself has largely remained undiscovered. While he means different things to different people, only very few understand his true nature. The Jews see him as their own brother but believe he was a false messiah. The Muslims regard him as a renegade prophet of Yahweh and a messiah without a definite portfolio. Customary Christians, who consider themselves Jesus's only disciples, believe he is the true Messiah, Savior of the world, and head of their church. Author Uche Ephraim Chuku contends that Jesus Christ was, in fact, not a prophet or a Jew, and he was not the founder of Christianity. Jesus Christ: The Way Yet Unknown reveals the true Messiah and his heavenly mission in the world for the benefit of those who truly seek spiritual salvation in his name.
