Item description for The Cambridge Companion to Jesus (Cambridge Companions to Religion) by Markus Bockmuehl...

Overview
This companion takes as its starting point the realization that Jesus of Nazareth cannot be studied as purely a subject of ancient history. Written by seventeen leading international scholars, the book encourages students of the historical Jesus to discover the vital contribution of theology, and students of doctrine to engage the Christ of faith as Jesus the first-century Jew.

Publishers Description
This text takes as its starting point the realization that Jesus of Nazareth cannot be studied purely as a subject of ancient history, a man like any other man. History, literature, theology and the dynamic of a living, worldwide religious reality, all appropriately impinge on the study of Jesus. The two parts of the book roughly correspond to the interdependent tasks of historical description and critical and theological reflection. It incorporates the most up-to-date historical work on Jesus the Jew with the bigger issues of critical method, the story of Christian faith and study, and Jesus in a global church and in the encounter with Judaism and Islam. Written by 17 leading international scholars, the book encourages students of the historical Jesus to discover the vital contribution of theology, and students of doctrine to engage the Christ of faith as Jesus the first-century Jew.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Cambridge Companion to Jesus (Cambridge Companions to Religion)?

Who do YOU say that I am?  Jun 25, 2006
I borrowed this book expecting the usual academic skepticism and 'debunking'. What I found instead was a full, fair and reverent treatment of most of the major issues surrounding Jesus' life and his legacy which, surprisingly, almost amounts to a defense of Jesus' divinity. The introduction by Markus Bockmuehl and his essay on the resurrection are second to none. Having heard much more about N.T. Wright and his Jesus Seminar critics, I had completely overlooked this eloquent, learned British scholar, a firm Christian as well as immensely knowledgeable about the New Testament. It is simply amazing that whereas England is one of the most secular nations in Europe, it produces some of the finest orthodox scholars in religion-and-science (Denis Alexander, R.J. Berry, John Polkinghorne, etc.) as well as NT studies (Bockmuehl, N.T. Wright, etc.). Well worth reading.
