Editorial Reviews

"This Companion will be a necessary part of any serious theological library. The essays are consistently strong and present invaluable orientations to their assigned topic. The real success of this book lies in bringing together perspectives on Jesus from so many sources of attention: texts, culture, history, various theologies, worldwide Christianity, world religions and media. Strongly recommended." (Journal for the Study of The New Testament, 2012)
"This is another excellent contribution to religious scholarship by Wiley-Blackwell. Chapters are scholarly but readable for the more general enquirer and some have illustrations, an unusual feature for this series of books. This volume is highly recommended for any library that has strong religious collections, whether Christian or not, and should endure for some years as a standard work in the field." (Reference Reviews, 2011)
"No collection of essays better represents the remarkable diversity in the approaches to the elusive Jesus of Nazareth ... Recommended: upper-level undergraduates and above." (Choice, 1 May 2011)
"Burkett has assembled an extraordinary collection of essays that invites a wide readership." (Books News, 2011)
"An imaginative collection of essays ... No fewer than 32 authors … have been recruited to write essays, all about 15 pages in length, and there is hardly any overlap among them, even in dealing with basic New Testament texts. The editor, Delburt Burkett, is to be commended." (The Journal of Theological Studies, 2011)
