The Person and Work of Christ

In The Person of Christ, Berkouwer relates christology's content and method thus:
"theology is not practised apart from faith, prayer and adoration ... The whole subject matter of Christology is most intimately related to the secret of revelation ... the enlightenment of the eyes" (pp. 10, 14).
In The Work of Christ, he describes the purpose of christology thus:
"the object is not a purely theoretical knowledge but a profitable, wholesome knowledge of the salvation of God in Jesus Christ" (p. 19).
