The Challenge of Jesus : Rediscovering Who Jesus Was and Is
N. T. Wright
From The Publisher:
Is there really anything new to say about Jesus? And if so, could it possibly be true to Scripture and the Christian faith?
Today a Renewed and Vigorous Scholarly quest for the historical Jesus is underway. In the midst of well publicized and controversial books on Jesus, N. T. Wright's lectures and writings on Jesus have been widely recognized as providing a fresh, provocative and historically credible portrait of Jesus.
Out of his own commitment to both historical scholarship and Christian ministry, Wright challenges us to roll up our sleeves and take seriously the study of the historical Jesus: "Many Christians have been, frankly, sloppy in their thinking and talking about Jesus, and hence, sadly, in their praying and in their practice of discipleship. We cannot assume that by saying the word Jesus, still less the word Christ, we are automatically in touch with the real Jesus who walked and talked in first-century Palestine... Only by hard, historical work can we move toward a fuller comprehension of what the Gospels themselves were trying to say."
N. T. Wright taught New Testament studies for twenty years in Cambridge, McGill and Oxford universities, served as Dean of Lichfield Cathedral and has been appointed as Canon Theologian of Westminster Abbey. His full-scale work Jesus and the Victory of God is widely regarded as one of the most significant studies in the contemporary Third Quest of the historical Jesus.
