This study brings together the reflections of international scholars on the state of contemporary christology, that branch of theology which reflects on the person and significance of Jesus of Nazereth. It begins by inquiring into christology's starting point, especially in the light of the many portraits of Jesus which now claim a place in the debate. It then moves to a consideration of some of the 'classical' sources which have shaped christology, including the Bible and patristic literature. The significance of the transition from the classical world to our pluralistic context is taken up in a series of essays which examine Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim, African and Native American considerations of Christ. In a concluding section, scholars investigate the attempts made by contemporary theologians to translate faith in Christ into a concrete agenda for life in specific contexts. This comprehensive study highlights the plurality which characterizes contemporary christology, and the richness and complexity of the Myriad Christ.Plurality and the Quest for Unity in Contemporary Christology Terrence Merrigan, Jacques Haers. THE NATIVE AMERICAN CHRIST The purpose of this short essay is to present a christological reflection from a Native American perspective.
