Reviews - What do customers think about Pure Kingdom: Jesus' Vision of God (Studying the Historical Jesus)?

New perspective for a reader on historical Jesus  May 5, 2003
I re-read the professional reviews, and I think they fairly present the author's approach. To these good reviews I will merely add my few minor thoughts.

1) This book is not devotional reading for Christians who are mostly focused on living a godly life. It requires some thought and a genuine interest in Jesus history.

2) Bruce Chilton says he is associated with the Jesus Seminar. I've read a little from others associated with the Jesus seminar, like Crossan and Funk. This is NOTHING like the other Jesus Seminar writers. He clearly places Jesus within (the variegated) Second Temple Judaism, and credits him with thorough knowledge of Hebrew Scripture.

3) I was impressed with how carefully Chilton develops his arguments throughout the book, along the way making some very enlightening observations.

4) His book changed my understanding of the Kingdom of God, and how Jesus delivered it to those to whom he ministered.

5) I'm not good enough a reader or well trained enough in history or theology to know whether I truly agree with everything Chilton wrote, but he wrote many things in this book that I found worthy to ponder and to recommend to others.

6) I have now purchased other books of his because I liked this one so well.
