Reviews - What do customers think about Seeking the Identity of Jesus: A Pilgrimage?

Excellent  Oct 16, 2009
This is a collection of pieces that presents an alternative to the 'Jesus Seminar' approach. They start with the premise that the canonical scriptures are the best guide to the identity of Jesus and they go from there. The essays are very well-written and the arguments make sense. But I would emphasise that this is not a trivialised 'literal word of God' thing; it's a serious examination of the scriptures.

I think people who like the writing of N. T. Wright will enjoy this; those who like the writing of Marcus Borg will hate it.
Seeking the Identity of Jesus  Sep 5, 2009
This book is well written and is a good source for expanding one's faith in Christ
