Product Description

Rich in familiarity with Jesus' Jewish world, Gerard Sloyan helps us discover a Jesus thoroughly situated in his own time and place. Grounded in the New Testament gospels, Sloyan's study leads us to an already interpreted Jesus, distinctly portrayed by each evangelist. Going outside the New Testament, Sloyan takes us into the theological questions and developments that culminated in the affirmations of the councils of Nicaea and Chalcedon. This impressive, clearly written work challenges readers to see both the historical Jesus who preached the in-breaking of God's reign and the post-resurrection Jesus whom Christians named Lord and Savior.

Publisher's Description

This book means to explore who Jesus was, is, and is to come, and by what series of events this man of Jewish history came to be viewed by millions as a man of God-like powers in their present lives and their hoped for future." Rich in familiarity with Jesus' Jewish world, Gerard Sloyan helps us discover a Jesus thoroughly situated in his own time and place. Grounded in the New Testament gospels, Sloyan's study leads us to an already interpreted Jesus, distinctly portrayed by each evangelist. Going outside the New Testament, Sloyan takes us into the theological questions and developments that culminated in the affirmations of the councils of Nicaea and Chalcedon. This impressive, clearly written work challenges readers to see both the historical Jesus who preached the in-breaking of God's reign and the post-resurrection Jesus whom Christians named Lord and Savior.

Editorial Reviews

Gerard Sloyan is certainly an authority on Jesus! This short work—an amazing, very literate and accurate condensation of all important aspects of modern Christology—is the fruit of his earlier works.

Catholic Books Review

Clearly and engagingly written, this book is ideal for an undergraduate Christology course and a worthy summary of the author’s life-time study and reflection.
Horizons

[A]n extraordinary accomplishment. . . . to study Jesus: Word Made Flesh is to receive the wisdom of a ‘Church Father’ and hence to enter further into the mystery of Christ.
Worship

[T]his is a responsible book, written by a responsible scholar, using his responsibility to serve both the church and the academy.
The Catholic Biblical Quarterly

Sloyan’s approach, walking through various portions of the Scriptures with an eye to who Jesus is in each, yields valuable insights on almost every page.
Libraries Alive

The book is written in an engaging, confident style and serves the purpose of this series well.
The Bible Today

[A] deftly written examination, and a top pick for Christian studies collections.
Midwest Book Review

Gerard Sloyan writes out of his vast knowledge of the biblical worlds and texts, and of the church's traditions and councils that offered the first interpretations of the significance of Jesus. Insightful and clearly written, Sloyan wrestles with these diverse presentations to offer a careful, accessible, and rich analysis.
Warren Carter, PhD, Professor of New Testament, Brite Divinity School, Fort Worth, Texas
