Product Description

The aim of A Spectator's Guide to Jesus is to provide readers with an introduction to the major portraits of Jesus found in the earliest historical sources. John Dickson attempts to present Jesus in such a way that is strictly historical, without fogging him with skepticism or religiosity. Using biblical and extrabiblical resources, Dickson contends that Jesus is utterly unique and cannot be neatly fit into one categorical box; he is Teacher, Healer, Christ, Judge, Friend, Savior, and much more. Who was Jesus? Dickson attempts to tell his story.

John Dickson is a historian, musician and best-selling author. He is an Honorary Associate in the Department of Ancient History, Macquarie University (Sydney, Australia), and he also teaches a course on World Religions for the Macquarie Christian Studies Institute. John is currently co-director of the Syndey-based Centre for Public Christianity.

Publisher's Weekly

Contemporary views of the person and mission of Jesus Christ are as varied as the kinds of faith that attach themselves to Christianity. From the somber Calvinists to the exuberant Word-Faith movement, practitioners of the Christian religious enterprise continue to find new and innovative ways of discovering the “Man from Nazareth.” In this exuberantly joyful meditation, Dickson, honorary associate in the department of ancient history, Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia, gathers the many facets of Jesus’ life and explores each as one would study the facets of a valuable diamond. How can one man be both friend and judge, both God and servant? The author draws on ancient histories and Judeo-Christian religious studies to present a compelling and readable account of the complex figure millions call Savior and Lord. There is no agenda here except to place Jesus Christ before readers in ways that inform and refresh, inspire and encourage. This is a wonderful book, highly recommended for readers, indeed seekers, at all levels. (May)Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
