This introductory chapter explains the coverage of this book, which is about analytic Christology. This book considers the possibility that analytic Christology is not needed because of the alleged need to revise traditional views, and it attempts to answer all the questions about the tenability of traditional doctrines of the Person of Christ. It also analyses the requirements of an accurate Christology and orthodox doctrine, and suggests that all objections to traditional orthodoxy are either misdirected or unfounded.

Keywords: analytic Christology; Christ; traditional doctrines; orthodox doctrine; religion
