James Yerkes is Associate Professor of Theology at Earlham School of Religion.
"The Christology of Hegel by James Yerkes can take its place among the finest studies in Hegel's philosophy of religion in any language. The price of admission to Hegel scholarship of this quality runs high, and Yerkes has paid it. He has mastered all the relevant texts in Hegel's corpus, moving among them with easy familiarity. He has read widely in the best of the secondary literature; the organization of his study shows magisterial command, and he turns his scholarship to the service of well-formulated contemporary issues.
