Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Today a renewed and vigorous scholarly quest for the historical Jesus is underway. In the midst of well publicized and controversial books on Jesus, N. T. Wright's lectures and writings have been widely recognized for providing a fresh, provocative and historically credible portrait. Out of his own commitment to both historical scholarship and Christian ministry, Wright challenges us to roll up our sleeves and take seriously the study of the historical Jesus. He writes, Many Christians have been, frankly, sloppy in their thinking and talking about Jesus, and hence, sadly, in their praying and in their practice of discipleship. We cannot assume that by saying the word Jesus, still less the word Christ, we are automatically in touch with the real Jesus who walked and talked in first-century Palestine. . . . Only by hard, historical work can we move toward a fuller comprehension of what the Gospels themselves were trying to say. The Challenge of Jesus poses a double-edged challenge: to grow in our understanding of the historical Jesus within the Palestinian world of the first century, and to follow Jesus more faithfully into the postmodern world of the twenty-first century.

Synopsis:

-- Offers in-depth historical study of the life of Christ

-- Presents biblical, informed scholarship

-- Functions as an effective introduction to Jesus as well as a resource for those already familiar with his life

Is There Really Anything New To Say About Jesus? And if so, could it possibly be true to Scripture and the Christian faith?

N. T. Wright, one of the premier scholars investigating the life of Jesus today, thinks we have nothing to fear and much to learn from a historical study of Jesus. The Jesus he unveils has his feet solidly planted in first-century Palestine and yet rings deeply true to the resurrected Christ of Christian belief, worship and experience.

This Jesus comes to us as one known and yet unknown, a man with a familiar profile and yet with features we had never noticed. Wright's account of Jesus is sure to grip readers with its clarity and its full accounting of the facts. Wright compels us to rethink our standard images of Jesus so that we will never read the Gospels in the same way again.

For those who don't know much about Jesus, this book launches the discovery of a lifetime. For those who do know Jesus, this book unveils exciting new perspectives that clearly echo Jesus' challenge to follow him. For those who have studied nearly everything about Jesus, this book reinvigorates the quest to know Jesus more fully and join in shaping the world as his disciple.
