In this seminal work, Frei considers the concepts of Jesus' identity and presence, maintaining that the logic of Christian faith requires that we begin with identity, not presence. Drawing on Ryles' philosophy, Frei argues that a person "is" primarily what they say or do. Hence, theologians should not look for Jesus' essence by looking past the stories but must look to the stories themselves."Hans Frei has written one of the most interesting and provocative christological proposals in recent American theology. It continues to stimulate discussion and to bear fruit for the faith of the Church and the life of academic theology."--George Hunsinger"No one could have anticipated the significance of this book when it was first published. Intellectually, we simply were not ready for it. Developments in theology and philosophy that made Frei's work so important were largely unknown to the general public. Now, thank God, many have 'caught up to Frei' and can appreciate the significance of this extraordinary book. For if Frei did nothing else, he made the Gospels again property of the church"--Stanley Hauerwas
