Reviews - What do our customers think?
Brown's NT Christology Introduction  May 9, 2007
Raymond Brown produced herein a study of New Testament Christology that I wish I had studied in seminary. The balanced and comprehensive approach is what we need as believers to counter imbalance and heresy. I recommend this text to anyone who wants a clear understanding of what the Bible says that Jesus said about Himself, and what other authors of Scripture said about Jesus.
Excellent for ongoing study  Jan 17, 2007
As an educator in adult religious education I found this text to be a good resource for both myself as an instructor, but also as a resource for my students. It is concise yet able to be read quite easily.
Who Do You Say Jesus Is?  Aug 30, 2006
I believe the author goes into great detail to peel away the layers of symbolism and sentimentality. I believe it is honest to look at the person of Jesus and see him for who he really is and to come to love him honestly. The author helps to expose this Jesus who lived and died and was raised again. I believe the author also delves into the things that cannot be denied about Jesus and also leaves you with an opportunity to form your own opinion.
Customer Satisfaction  Aug 19, 2005
I am completely satisfied with my purchase and the delivery time was done in a timely manner. The product received was in "new" condition and it will serve my purpose very well.

A Centrist Approach to New Testament Christology  Jan 18, 2005
Raymond Brown (1928-1998) was probably the best-known Catholic biblical scholar in the U.S. He was controversial because his views on the Bible were center to left, yet nonetheless his books earned the imprimatur of the Catholic Church and he even was appointed a member of the Pontifical Biblical Commission. While Fr. Brown appeared to support most of the Church's teaching, it's hard to imagine that his "critical" approach ever did much to increase the faith of Catholics.

AN INTRODUCTION TO NEW TESTAMENT CHRISTOLOGY (1994) is an excellent introduction to Christology from the "centrist" perspective. Brown hits on many of the standard topics in Christology such as the "titles" of Jesus, the resurrection, the messianic expectations of the Jews, and the like. (It is an introduction and therefore does not cover topics that are found in longer works.)

What is most frustrating is that while Brown discusses other views, he generally limits the options to the center/left perspective. For example, the synoptic gospels report that on at least three occasions Jesus predicted his death (Mk. 8:31; 9:31; 10:33-34 & par). What does Fr. Brown say about these? Well, "it is difficult to decide about Jesus' foreknowledge of his passion, crucifixion, and resurrection." [P. 49.] Now, if these predictions were simply "retrojected" by the early church, it is at least interesting to note that: (1) Jesus refers to himself as the "Son of man" in these passages - an expression which does not appear in the early church; and (2) there is no mention of the crucifixion or the atonement in Mark, which one might expect if they were later theological reflections put in the mouth of Jesus. Considering that Mark was probably the first gospel written, such arguments should carry some weight. They might not persuade non-believers, but if Brown is going to mention the findings of skeptics such as Todt and Higgins, at least he could find space for a paragraph or two to discuss the arguments I just mentioned (which, of course, aren't original to me.)
