Infinity Dwindled to Infancy: A Catholic and Evangelical Christology

At the heart of all ecumenical dialogue between Catholics and Evangelicals is their fundamental agreement on Christology — and a common understanding and confession of the lordship of Jesus Christ as the unique Savior of the human race. Infinity Dwindled to Infancy provides a broad survey of doctrinal and historical issues at play in Christology.

Drawing from a wide range of sources — contemporary New Testament scholarship and patristic Christology, key medieval theologians, major Protestant voices, Catholic theologians, and recent magisterial statements from Vatican II — Edward T. Oakes presents two millennia of thinking on one of the great paradoxes at the heart of Christian faith: “an infinite God who is finite man . . . in short, Infinity dwindled to infancy.”
