The Author attempts to present Franciscan Christology and its relevance to contemporary Christological issues. He demonstrates how St. Francis' experience of Christ and his thinking about Christ, developed by prominent theologians of the Franciscan Order, can make a significant contribution to Christology today. Particularly, Franciscan Christology reflects a sustained commitment to a deeper understanding of: the centrality of Christ in the history of salvation, the redemptive import of the mysteries of Christ's life, the theology of the cross, the primacy of Christ, and Christ, King of the Universe, the underlying theological principle for the hope of restored humanity being brought to full perfection, and the safeguarding of creation.
