Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This Oxford Reader brings together an extensive range of ancient and modern documents to convey the many ways in which the figure of Jesus has stimulated and provoked responses over the last 2,000 years. It features more than 340 extracts, including familiar material from key texts in the history of doctrine alongside a diverse sampling of devotional, popular, liturgical, historical-critical, philosophical, and mystical texts. Selections include extracts from poems, songs, and plays, as well as from polemics, commentaries, manifestos, treatises, letters, novels, liturgies, and creeds. The rich and complex variety of responses to Jesus is represented in Christian, Jewish, Islamic, Hindu, Buddhist, and Zoroastrian texts.
