Reviews - What do customers think about Jesus the Messiah: A Survey of the Life of Christ?
Excellent!! Mar 19, 2007
A very well thought out and well researched study of the synoptic gospels. I'd highly recommend this book for believers and non-believers who have questions.
level headed reading Jan 22, 2007
this is a fantastic "intro" to the study of Jesus according to the new testament. The author has done his homework and presents well researched material in an understandeable way. this work covers the whole spectrum of Jesus as found in the new testament gospel accounts, and then some. Just a great book to become familiar with Jesus studies and related issues. Some other extremely good ones are: Jesus in His World by Peter Walker; Jesus and The Gospels by Craig Blomberg; and The Original Jesus by N.T. Wright.
A great overview of the Life of Christ Sep 18, 2000
I teach a college-level "Life of Christ" survey class and use this book as my text. It is clear, orderly, evangelical, and well documented, perfect for a learning environment such as a college classroom. The issues dealt with by Stein involve more than just his personal opinion (although he will tell you what he feels is the most likely interpretation). He does make a big point to explain different interpretations of various points of disagreement (such as the ethical teachings of Jesus). I find this to be much more honest and refreshing than merely ignoring opposing points of view. Stein supports everything with references from the Bible as well as numerous other books on the subject, many of which are unfortunately out of print. If you want a nondevotional survey on the Life of Christ, I know of no better book.
