Editorial Reviews

Review

"An extraordinarily diverse collection of articles on the cutting edge of historical Jesus research, feminist and process Christology and interfaith discussions of the significance of Jesus. Jesus Then and Now will be of great interest to scholars and laymen from many theological and ideological perspectives." —Kathleen E. Corley, University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh (Kathleen E. Corley)

"In this volume, the enduring power of Jesus of Nazareth is once again demonstrated. An assortment of Jesus scholars, ranging from those called ‘traditionalists’ to those called ‘radicals’ have penned their deepest convictions in their own words. This book's beauty lies in the fact that each writer speaks for himself or herself, allowing the reader to form a judgement apart from the demonizing distortions that make so much of the current ecclesiastical debate. As such, Jesus Then and Now will contribute greatly to the future of Christianity." —John Shelby Spong, author of Here I Stand: My Struggle for a Christianity of Integrity, Love and Equality (John Shelby Spong)

"This is an excellent compilation of the images of Jesus in history and Christology bearing fruit for each reader when reciting the Apostles Creed and the Lord’s prayer. A valuable volume for every library." — Raymond B. Knudsen, reviewing for The Counselor, March 20, 2001 (Raymond B. Knudsen Professional Counselor)

"... wide-ranging and highly diverse collection... largely nontechnical and accessible to a wide audience... includes a helpful index—a rare aid... Recommended for all libraries supporting work on Jesus; upper-division undergraduates through faculty and researchers." — P. K. Moser, Loyola University of Chicago, reviewing for CHOICE, July 2001 (P. K. Moser CHOICE)

"—this collection of essays offers a broad range of current perspectives on Jesus from historical, bibical, and theological points of view...The enduring value of the volume is to illustrate the compelling interest that Jesus holds for such a diverse ensemble of people and viewpoints."—The Bible Today (The Bible Today)

"[A] Singularly facinating, college-level look at the artistic vision human beings have had of Jesus Christ throughout the ages. Jesus Then and Now does not limit itself to any era, or even to the religion of Christianity, for its also encompasses images and perceptions of Jesus in Judaism and Islam…. Jesus Then and now is very highly recommended for both scholars and non-specialist general readers with a serious interest in the history of Christiaity and evolving perspectives of Jesus Christ." —Midwest Book Review Jaanuary 13th 2002 (Midwest Book Review)

From the Publisher

In this compelling collection of essays, conservative and liberal scholars engage each other in a dialogue about the place of faith, the nature of history, the character of literary texts, and the purpose of theology as they relate to the historical Jesus.

Format: Paperback
Jesus Then & Now: Images Of Jesus In History And Christology edited by Marvin Meyer (Professor of Religious Studies at Chapman College) and Charles Hughes (Associate Professor of Religious Studies at Chapman College) is a singularly fascinating, college-level look at the artistic vision human beings have had of Jesus Christ throughout the ages. Jesus Then & Now does not limit itself to any era, or even to the religion of Christianity, for its also encompasses images and perceptions of Jesus in Judaism and Islam. Extensive annotation reflects the vast amount of scholarly research that has gone into this presentation of the myriad, often conflicting views of Jesus that have persisted through the ages. Jesus Then & Now is very highly recommended for both scholars and non-specialist general readers with a serious interest in the history of Christianity and evolving perspectives of Jesus Christ.
