Del Colle measures this christological version opposed to trinitarian theology and checks its viability. He investigates specifically the improvement of a Roman Catholic Spirit-Christology, which has arisen from in the glossy neo-scholastic theological culture. opposite to different interpreters, Del Colle argues that an incarnational christology and a Spirit-Christology are usually not conflicting yet complementary and that this can be well-known through the older and deeper culture.
