Item description for Jesus Christ: The Message of the Gospels, the Hope of the Church by Burton Hamilton Throckmorton...
Overview Jesus Christ The Message of the Gospels, The Hope of the Church In response to recent books that claim to reveal "the real Jesus," Burton Throckmorton here offers a thoughtful, reasoned analysis of the life and significance of Jesus Christ-one that adheres to a faith-affirming pathway between espousers of an uncritical literalism and those who claim to derive "new" insight through historical, literary interpretations. Eschewing both fundamentalist rigidity and humanist revisionism, Throckmorton discusses the traditional identity and nature of Jesus as portrayed in the Gospels. While keeping a close eye on historical detail, he explores and explicates the profound and lyrically spiritual implications of the life and meaning of Christ.

Reviews - What do customers think about Jesus Christ: The Message of the Gospels, the Hope of the Church?
An inspiring book for the believer with an inquiring mind Feb 5, 1999
No need for special schooling in order to find this book rewarding. Throckmorton writes about Jesus Christ and the Kingdom,or "Dominion" of God, using the gospels as primary source, in a way that gives increased meaning to this familiar phrase.Therefore, the book provides an excellent, much needed balance to the sometime imaginative writings that appear in Crossan and Borg et al concerning authentic words spoken by Jesus. Throckmorton writes with great clarity graced with humor, always inclusive but never obtrusive.
