This is an outstanding treatment of the two ditches of Christological heresy, adoptionism and docetism. Allison makes the case convincingly that all heresies fall into one of these camps, and he succinctly demonstrates how the identity of the God-man Jesus was preserved through the ecumenical councils of the church. And perhaps most unique to this book he draws out the practical consequences, the cruelties, of distorting who Jesus is.
