I am planning to do a study on the person of Christ, I would like hear from you what are some books in Logos that you would recommend for this study? The book should be comprehensive and cover topics such as Christ's Deity, Humanity, Incarnation, Eternal Generation, Virgin Birth, Impeccability, Earthly Ministry, Death, Resurrection, Ascension, Heavenly ministry... etc

Thanks in advance!

Classic Studies on Christology

This is one place to start.  There are so many resources in Logos on this topic, in journals, in books.

One of the resources I enjoyed the most concerning Christology was https://www.logos.com/product/5993/jesus-according-to-scripture . Obviously if you are approaching it more from a systematic theology side of things then you would want to pick up a systematic theology from the likes of Oden, Erickson, etc.  This is probably a bit dated, but I have the print version in my library and it is easily the largest book I have solely devoted to Christology.  https://www.logos.com/product/30813/the-word-became-flesh-a-contemporary-incarnational-christology

If you don't mind going old-school, so to speak, I would suggest On the Incarnation of the Word by Athanasius.  It has become one of my favorite works on the topic of the incarnation.  I also found Cur Deus Homo by Anselm helpful.  Its focus is on the atonement.

If nothing else, these two relatively short works would give you a good feel for how the church has historically understood two key Christological questions.

I came in to post this. One thing I have observed is that students often prefer to head immediately to monographs on particular theological topics rather than general works. However, for a topic like Christology, all systematic theologies will give a major treatment of it in a volume or half volume. For many studies, that's the best place to begin, and likely you already have quite a few STs in your Logos library.

I also came in to recommend Erickson's The Word Became Flesh, although it's more a comparative study of contemporary Christologies than a general introduction to the topic (but it also does that).

This is on prepub:

I can't recommend Dr. Wellum any more highly. I was fortunate to have him for 4 courses in my M.Div. studies at Southern Seminary. One of them was basically the material in this book.

This really looks interesting, will be very worth if I can rush though all 14 courses in 2 weeks...

Can you share the table of contents for Erickson's book? Thanks!

Here is another volume worth consulting The Epistle to the Hebrews and Christian Theology

I'm not sure if you can buy Christ Alone from this set but I like it :-) Still reading it now but it seems pretty solid

YES AND YES! I would add to that Book II of Calvin's Institutes also. If we have seen further it is because we have been standing on the shoulders of these giants!

You may also find the Christology section in Louis Berkhof's (https://www.logos.com/product/6689/systematic-theology) AND/OR John Frame's Systematic Theology (https://www.logos.com/product/49812/systematic-theology-an-introduction-to-christian-belief) helpful. As well as Gorden Fee's Pauline Christology (https://www.logos.com/product/39659/pauline-christology-an-exegetical-theological-study).
