Jesus Through the Centuries: His Place in the History of Culture

by

Jesus Through the Centuries: His Place in the History of Culture Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the most highly regarded works of intellectual history of the past decade, Jesus Through the Centuries is an original and compelling study of the impact of Jesus on cultural, political, social, and economic history. Noted historian and theologian Jaroslav Pelikan reveals how the image of Jesus created by each successive epoch — from rabbi in the first century to liberator in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries — is a key to understanding the temper and values of that age.

Synopsis:

A discussion about how each age created Jesus in its own image, discovering in his life and teachings the answers to fundamental questions of human life and destiny. It studies the images of Jesus cherished by successive ages, suggesting that the depictions are key to understanding each era.
