What did Christ feel and know during his life on Earth? Raymond Moloney ventures a consideration utilizing perspectives based in exegesis,
patristics, and philosophy.
This book traces the shifting opinions on the knowledge of Christ in the New Testament and medieval periods--a period during which there was a
consensus against ignorance in Christ. Moloney then examines how both Protestant and Catholic theologists, such as Karl Rahner, Hans Urs von
Balthasar, and Bernard Lonergan, have questioned this consensus.
Drawing on the insights of transcendental theology, The Knowledge of Christ ultimately stresses the mysteriousness of this question.

"Besides the usefulness of so much historical material assembled in one place, the value of this monograph lies in its clear writing, which helps the reader through dense philosophical thickets, and in the transparent way the author builds his own position, inviting the reader to do likewise .a serviceable, substantial treatment of a perennial issue."
