Editorial Reviews

John Shelby Spong
In this volume, the enduring power of Jesus of Nazareth is once again demonstrated. An assortment of Jesus scholars, ranging from those called 'traditionalists' to those called 'radicals' have penned their deepest convictions in their own words. This book's beauty lies in the fact that each writer speaks for himself or herself, allowing the reader to form a judgement apart from the demonizing distortions that make so much of the current ecclesiastical debate. As such, Jesus Then and Now will contribute greatly to the future of Christianity.
Kathleen E. Corley
An extraordinarily diverse collection of articles on the cutting edge of historical Jesus research, feminist and process Christology and interfaith discussions of the significance of Jesus. Jesus Then and Now will be of great interest to scholars and laymen from many theological and ideological perspectives.
Raymond B. Knudsen
This is an excellent compilation of the images of Jesus in history and Christology bearing fruit for each reader when reciting the Apostles Creed and the Lord's prayer. A valuable volume for every library.
