Adriani Milli Rodrigues’s book Toward a Priestly Christology is a fascinating investigation of Christ’s priesthood, with significant systematic implications for theology proper, Christology, and anthropology. Rodrigues carefully surveys and analyzes three prominent models of Christ’s priesthood—sacramental, functional, and ontological—and sets forth a constructive alternative, which he labels the historical model. This hermeneutically sophisticated work makes an impressive contribution to the existing literature and warrants considerable attention in the scholarly community.
