This book examines the logical consistency and coherence of Extended Conciliar Christology—the Christological doctrine that results from conjoining Conciliar Christology, the Christology of the first seven ecumenical councils of the Christian Church, with five additional theses.

Keywords: Conciliar Christology, incarnation, analytic theology, ecumenical council, multiple incarnations, free will, impeccability, foreknowledge and freedom, St Thomas Aquinas
