Troeltsch's struggle with historicism sets the stage for a proposal that Christology be done from within and from ahead. Gadamer's philosophical hermeneutics and Schleiermacher's experiential theology inform a Christology from within that is rooted in tradition and experience, while Pannenberg's notion of proleptic eschatological fulfilment serves as resource for a Christology from ahead.This volume develops a hermeneutical Christology that takes into account the historical contingency of knowledge, and seeks a Christology beyond the objectivism of timeless truth and the relativism of absolutised contextuality.The book is concluded with an examination of the convergence of critical traditionality, experiential appropriation and eschatological prolepsis in the Christology of the apostle Paul. The author explores how Christology might respond to the scandal of universality in postmodernity without defaulting on its claim to transcontextual referentiality.ContentsPreface Abbreviations Introduction Ch. 1 Historical Contingency and the Question of Truth in Christology Ch. 2 A Christology From Within--Tradition (I): The Hermeneutical Rehabilitation of Tradition Ch. 3 A Christology From Within--Tradition (II): Dynamics of a Traditionary Christology Ch. 4 A Christology From Within--Experience: Toward a Christology of the Heart Ch. 5 A Christology From Ahead: Eschatological Prolepsis and Christology as Universal Truth Ch. 6 Christology From Within and Ahead: Tradition, Experience and Eschatology in Paul's Hermeneutical ChristologyConclusion Bibliography Index of Names
