Jesus's death in historical context Mar 17, 2007
Fr. Sloyan has done a credible job of placing the story and meanings of Jesus's death and resurrection within the historical context of Church development. Thus, he helps us to better understand their meaning as learned in the canonical writings, and as the religion evolved from Judaism to Christianity and then towards contemporary understanding. The breadth of the historical developments are extremely welcomed. The conciseness of the book is very welcomed, but the writing style could be smoother.
