Item description for Jesus, the Christ: Contemporary Perspectives by Brennan R. Hill...

Overview
This new edition is written in a more informal and accessible style, eminently readable, constantly challenging, and filled with timely information and non- technical language. It is strongly rooted in the best of modern biblical translation and will be welcomed by students, teachers, and the general reader alike. Christology, that is, the study of Jesus, is a many faceted subject. In this new edition of Jesus, the Christ, Brennan Hill clearly and cogently explores this critical theological area, resulting in a luminous and reliable portrait of the Jesus of history and the Christ of faith. He deftly surveys both the breadth of information covered in the previous edition as well as the wealth of developments that have occurred in the field since the early 1990s. Jesus, the Christ looks at the people and places in Jesus' time, then moves to a search for the historical Jesus. Hill next looks at the many areas of Jesus' life and mission: teacher, prophet, miracle worker, man of the earth, advocate for women, savior, and liberator. He examines the main gospel stories about Jesus' birth, death, and resurrection, and illustrates how the early Christological doctrines developed. This new edition is written in a more informal and accessible style, enabling students to well understand and grasp the concepts and facts about the subject. Each chapter ends with discussion questions and a list of suggestions for further reading. Jesus, the Christ is eminently readable, constantly challenging, and filled with timely information and non- technical language. It is strongly rooted in the best of modern biblical translation, and will be welcomed by students, teachers, and the general reader alike.

Reviews - What do customers think about Jesus, the Christ: Contemporary Perspectives?

a good read for those interested in Jesus as the Christ  May 3, 2010
Brennan Hill has done a great service for us by presenting a study of Jesus as the Christ. He has gathered the thought of modern scholars concerning the many different concepts surrounding Jesus as the Christ such as teacher, prophet, etc. Who was he? And, what is our thinking about him today?

This is a book that should be read by all interested in Jesus as the Christ.
