This book addresses the fundamental twin-foci of Christology, i.e., Divinity and
Humanity of Jesus, the Christ and its relevance to Christologizing. In the study of
Christology, there is always the tendency to adhere to either of the two. There are very
few attempts to find an integrated path, a middle-way.
The author takes up the `challenge' to attempt a shot at the middle-way in Christology.
Therefore, when we talk of `Jesus Beyond Borders,' there is an integrated approach to
Christology and not a `Borderless-Christology.' A unitive paradigm is the sole-motif of
being borderless. Finding the common ground is the approach of such a position. In such a
Christological paradigm, there is an inter-play of seemingly contradictory categories,
such as divinity and humanity of Jesus, the Christ. Therefore, it is a Christology of
Complementarity. The book is a treat for those who are willing to amplify their radius of
understanding Christian theology from a new aspect.
