Publisher's Description

Jesus Now and Then engagingly traces the changing images of Jesus in scholarship and popular culture from the time of the early church to the present day. Who did Jesus think he was? Did the early church take a man and make him into God? Was Christianity actually invented by Paul? How has Jesus been treated in the centuries since? What contemporary views are compatible with a traditional understanding of Scripture? Richard Burridge and Graham Gould leave no stone unturned in detailing Jesus' life and legacy. They start with the evidence about Jesus found in the New Testament and then go on to explore the early-church debates as a way of tackling contemporary issues. They also discuss how the figure of Jesus has been portrayed through history, how his teachings have been understood, and how he has come to be worshiped by Christians around the world. This essential historical information sets current questions and controversies about Jesus into context and helps to explain the many different views and interpretations of him now on offer.

    This book is excellent. It gives an early history of the church, especially in the development of it's view of Scripture, doctrine, and worship practices. Very readable yet not overly simplistic. Acknowledges different viewpoints but tends towards the conservative and mainstream. Don't think I have ever gotten so much information, so clearly and attractively laid out in such a show book. This book is perfect for new Christians to explain where Christianity came from and why it believes what it does. Veteran Christians can also learn a lot of new things here. I have been a Christian for over 40 years, have spent my entire Christian life studying apologetics, theology, etc. and still I encountered many tidbits of information I had never known before. What a great and effortless read. Buy this one, especially considering the price.
