"A fascinating and deeply learned book. The core theme is learning. The book rests on a presentation of Jesus as having undergone a process of education: he learned through suffering (Heb. 5:8). Cragg develops this theme through a many-sided conversation with some modern figures who provide case studies in Christ-learning: Hooker, Newman, Browning, Faulkner, Kipling, Nietzsche and Wilde. This is an exceptional work: first, here is a christology that refuses to downplay the full, human obedience of Jesus, and takes time, history and process seriously; second, this christology becomes integral to an engagement with contemporary culture which would be hard to match for thoroughness, sensitivity and profundity. A very significant achievement." The Expository Times. "Written in a strikingly subtle and penetrating style, this volume reveals an immense erudition, and a truly extraordinary moral and religious sensitivity, theological acumen and critical awareness, literary and other." W. D. Davies, Emeritus Professor, Duke University
