Book Alert

For a while I’ve been thinking about a monograph or lecture series on “subdominant christologies,” characterizations of Jesus that didn’t attain definitive prominence in the patristic period. Evidently Joseph Fitzmyer treats one of them, “the one who is to come,” as the touchstone for his most recent book. (I’ not tipping my hand on others I’m thinking of.) Fitzmyer is a scholar’s scholar, though his profound erudition sometimes seems to me to overshadow his judgment as a reader; I’ll be interested to see how his argument here develops.
