about

This Companion's starting point is the realization that Jesus of Nazareth cannot be studied purely as a subject of ancient history, or as "a man like any other man". History, literature, theology and the dynamic of a living, worldwide religious reality appropriately impinge on the study of Jesus. This book therefore incorporates the most up-to-date historical work on Jesus with the "larger issues" of critical method--the story of Christian faith and study, as well as Jesus in a global church and in the encounter with Judaism and Islam.

Editorial Reviews

"This is an immensely rich and rewarding compendium of essays by seventeen notable biblical scholars and theologians, together offering a largely complementary and always challenging range of historical and theological reflections upon Jesus' life and its effects...a remarkably coherent and comprehensive set of studies, surely the best of its kind currently available." Toronto Journal of Theology
