Editorial Reviews

“This Companion will be a necessary part of anyserious theological library. The essays are consistently strong andpresent invaluable orientations to their assigned topic. The realsuccess of this book lies in bringing together perspectives onJesus from so many sources of attention: texts, culture, history,various theologies, worldwide Christianity, world religions andmedia. Strongly recommended.” (Journal for the Study ofThe New Testament, 2012)
“This is another excellent contribution to religiousscholarship by Wiley-Blackwell. Chapters are scholarly but readablefor the more general enquirer and some have illustrations, anunusual feature for this series of books. This volume is highlyrecommended for any library that has strong religious collections,whether Christian or not, and should endure for some years as astandard work in the field.” (ReferenceReviews, 2011)
“No collection of essays better represents the remarkablediversity 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 essaysthat invites a wide readership.” (Books News,2011)
“An imaginative collection of essays ... No fewerthan 32 authors … have been recruited to write essays, allabout 15 pages in length, and there is hardly any overlap amongthem, even in dealing with basic New Testament texts. The editor,Delburt Burkett, is to be commended.” (The Journal ofTheological Studies, 2011)
