Are so-called Kenotic Theologians right to assert that this passage teaches the loss of some of the attributes of Deity by Christ when He took our flesh? In what ways did Christ become a Servant, as Paul says in this passage that He did? How are we to understand the complete submission of the entire creation to the Name of Jesus spoken of in this passage? What might believers in Christ expect as a consequence of the Life and Work of Christ? These are just some of the questions discussed in this book. Christology is the study of the Person and Work of Christ, and this book is an examination of the Person and Work of Christ based on the words of Paul in Philippians 2:6-11. The scope of this very brief passage of Scripture is breathtakingly wide; going back to the time before the Word was 'made flesh', perhaps even to the time before the Creation itself; sweeping into the future state when 'every knee shall bow' at the Name of Jesus; the centrepiece being the Death of Christ at Calvary. This centrepiece is the very fulcrum about which the entire passage, all of Scripture, and the entire counsel of God turns.
The author was born in 1953 into an Anglo-Irish family, was educated at a private Roman Catholic school, attended Mass regularly, served as an altar-boy, and received Confirmation at the age of eleven. By his late teens he had rejected Catholicism and belief in God, for the occult, and was to be trained by a local witch. Before this training could begin he was taken badly ill and nearly died. During this crisis, he prayed for the first time in years, and promised to turn back to God if He would but spare his life. At that moment his recovery began, and he started to search for God and His Truth. Through many different incidents, by God's Grace, he was led to an unqualified and most literal acceptance of the Scriptures, and of the Atonement wrought by Christ for our forgiveness, pardon, justification, and sanctification. He is now an honorary member of the Academic Faculty of The European Theological Seminary, in the capacity of Researcher and Examiner.
