DESCRIPTION

In view of the proliferation of conflicting images of Jesus in the church, in the academy, and in popular culture, it is no wonder that his identity sometimes appears more elusive than ever. Seeking the Identity of Jesus brings together an interdisciplinary group of leading scholars -- from the fields of biblical studies, theology, and church history -- to focus on the complex problems surrounding the quest for the historical Jesus. Their perspectives are richly informed by Scripture, testimony from the church's past, and experience of the risen Jesus in the present.

REVIEWS
Scot McKnight, North Park University
"Seeking the Identity of Jesus is a 'wiki-Christology,' a series of chapters whose central story about Jesus Christ is alive and growing and developing. This is not the final word; it is an invitation to join in on listening to the Word. The bonus in this book is that it gathers world-class experts who write from faith about the Christian's most important question: Who was Jesus? In your hands is a gift to the church."
Klyne Snodgrass, North Park Theological Seminary
"This dialogue of biblical scholars and theologians both challenges and enlightens. Anyone interested in historical Jesus issues, in understanding how Jesus is known, or in grasping his true character must pay attention to these essays."
