Princeton theologian B. B. Warfield was a watchman on the wall of orthodoxy. His temperament, training, and talent—together with his deep love for Christ and amazing breadth of knowledge—shaped him into the twentieth century’s greatest defender of the faith. His writings have been studied with profit for well over a hundred years—a tribute to his clear, careful, cogent, gospel-centered exposition of orthodox Christianity, which he called “the redemptive religion” and which he fearlessly defended.

In The Person and Work of Christ, Warfield demonstrates that "it is no more possible to have a Christianity without an atoning Christ than it is to have a Christianity without a divine Christ." Warfield's incisive scholarship shines in this new and enhanced edition, which has been edited, formatted, and retypeset for modern readers. Its carefully prepared aids include fulsome abstracts at the beginning of each chapter, intelligent headings, smart paragraph breaks, explanatory notes, definitions of obscure terms, discussion questions, recommended reading, complete footnotes and bibliographies, and more.


"The Old Princetonians have received renewed attention today, as their theological method, doctrine of Scripture, and Reformed soteriology are resurrected. But they are not often analyzed in the domain of Christology. This new edition of B. B. Warfield’s works on Christology is therefore an invitation full of potential. Here is an opportunity to consider the variety of ways in which Warfield articulated Christology in an age still influenced by the effects of modernity. In view of today’s rising interest in retrieval, this volume should reenter the conversation as the next generation examines Warfield’s Christology in light of our church fathers and their famous definition of Christology at Chalcedon."

—Matthew Barrett, Associate Professor of Christian Theology and Director of The Center for Classical Theology, Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

"The Person and Work of Christ gathers seventeen extraordinary essays on Jesus in himself, Jesus as atoning sacrifice, and Jesus as the one we believe and follow. B. B. Warfield’s work always merits reading for its superb harmony of exegesis, systematic reflection, and personal devotion. Any number of Warfield’s articles are priceless for their unique contribution (see ‘The Emotional Life of Our Lord’), for their contribution of foundational theology (see ‘The Chief Theories of the Atonement’), or for their clear call to discipleship (see ‘Imitating the Incarnation’)."

—Daniel M. Doriani, Professor of Biblical Theology, Covenant Theological Seminary; Founder and Director, Center of Faith and Work, St. Louis
