There are two reviews in the latest SBL list of The Preexistent Son, Recovering the Christologies of Matthew, Mark, and Luke, Gathercole, Simon, Grand Rapids: Eerdmans.

Matera is polite and open-ended, Dunn is polite and devastating. Pre-existence is a false word. That time is a dimension mediated by the square-root of -1 and that there are 4 at least additional dimensions in the latest mathematical theories of ha-olam, should lead us to doubt pre- as a prefix or even as a fix. Instead of revelling in enclitics, let us engage with the multi-dimensional Reality that loves us.
