Dong-Kun Kim’s The Future of Christology: Jesus Christ for a Global Age is a timely reminder that faith in Jesus Christ not only has a distinguished intellectual history, but also an interesting and creative present that opens onto a promising global future. This is an exciting book, written from a standpoint of confidence — open to life, scholarship and culture, but also theologically positive and constructive to the core. If you are tired of sterile academic theology, this book is for you.
