"Crisp and very readable prose. . . .Lohfink has fresh things to say about Jesus' teaching through parables, about his sayings about judgment and, especially, about understanding Jesus' miracles. . . . Having read and studied, Jesus of Nazareth (and squirreled it away as a rich resource for future preaching and having been truly moved spiritually by it), I can agree with Daniel Harrington, S.J. [author of Jesus: A Historical Portrait]: "Lohfink's Jesus of Nazareth is the best Jesus book I know."

Covered are Jesus' parables, his life and death, his miracles, his relation to the Torah, the Old Testament, judgment, and more.
The two chapters on discipleship and calling, 5 and 6, are two of the best in the entire book.
Anyone wanting to grow in their walk with Jesus will do exactly that by reading and studying this excellent book about the life of the greatest person who ever lived.
The book is not an easy read. It is quite dense at times as it traces thought patterns back through the religious history of Israel. It is, however, worth the effort as one is left with new insights into Jesus' life, miracles, resurrection, and hopefully a more accurate understanding of the Jesus question.
Lohfink's Jesus of Nazareth explores this question from prior to creation to the end of times, from his detractors to his disciples, from the Torah to the Wisdom literature to the Gospel of John. It is a masterpiece. I am so grateful for that review in America Magazine.
