Summary
Who would the Savior have to be, what would the Savior have to do, to rescue human beings fromthe meaning-destroying experiences of their lives? This book offers a systematic Christology that is at once biblical and philosophical. Starting with human radical vulnerability to horrors such as permanent pain, sadistic abuse, or genocide, it develops what must be true about Christ if He is the horror-defeater who ultimately resolves all the problems affecting the human condition and Divine{u2013} human relations. Distinctive elements ofMarilynMcCordAdams{u2019} study are her defense of the two-natures theory and of Christ as Inner Teacher and a functional partner in human flourishing, and her arguments in favor of literal bodily resurrection (Christ{u2019}s and ours) and of a strong doctrine of corporeal eucharistic presence. The book concludes that Christ is the One inWhomnot only Christian doctrine, but also cosmos, church, and the human psyche hold together
