Item Description...
In this highly anticipated volume, N. T. Wright focuses directly on the historical Jesus: Who was he? What did he say? And what did he mean by it? Wright begins by showing how the questions posed by Albert Schweitzer a century ago remain central today. Then he sketches a profile of Jesus in terms of his prophetic praxis, his subversive stories, the symbols by which he reordered his world, and the answers he gave to the key questions that any world view must address. The examination of Jesus' aims and beliefs, argued on the basis of Jesus' actions and their accompanying riddles, is sure to stimulate heated response. Wright offers a provocative portrait of Jesus as Israel's Messiah who would share and bear the fate of the nation and would embody the long-promised return of Israel's God to Zion. N. T. Wright is the recently consecrated Bishop of Durham in England and widely acclaimed New Testament scholar. Among his many influential works is the newly published The Resurrection of the Son of God, the third volume in his much-noted series, Christian Origins and the Question of God

Publishers Description
A major scholarly contribution to the current "quest" for the historical Jesus.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Bit off more than I can chew.  May 15, 2008
Well, I hate to say it, but this book is just a lot more information and in depth than I'm prepared to digest right now. Perhaps my mistake was not reading the first volume first. I've never considered myself short on attention span, but I've had to skip to the chapters that speak directly to what I want to know. I'm still slowly working my way through parts of it. I would say this book is for serious scholars only. I thought I was one, but apparently I'm not.
Outstanding History  Feb 3, 2008
This is volume 2 of N.T. Wright's "Christian Origins and the Question of God", which begins to put flesh on volume 1 and centers on the historical Jesus. In the opening section Wright surveys the historical quests to find out who Jesus is and provides a devastating critique of the Jesus Seminar. This is a great section, introducing the lay scholar to names, theories, and trends in the study of the historical Jesus and he does it without simply locking into strict orthodoxy or jettisoning it at the door. Once this basic background is established Wright seeks to set forth his vision of the historical Jesus. He begins by outlining the work of a prophet in section II and then moves into the beliefs and aims of Jesus in section III.

Through his historical analysis, Wright sheds a lot of light on numerous texts, bringing out the historical Jesus and, I believe, showing that there is not a dichotomy between the Christ of faith and the Jesus of history. In fact, given the aims and beliefs of this prophet the outworking of the Church's vision is quite sound. This is a great book that will challenge aspects of your thinking, especially if you think Jesus is a-political or simply a 'savior from hell', but doesn't necessarily call you to leave the Faith to discover the 'real Jesus', but enables one to clearly understand the the history and life and times of Jesus more thoroughly.

My fault with the book lies on aspects of his conclusion, which flows from his methodology. Granted, he says he is not touching John's Gospel, because it is a huge mountain to climb, but how can John's Gospel not tie in directly with any aspect of "Jesus' self-consciousness"? Granted, he limits the scope of his work, which was necessary, but some of his conclusions seem to be built on incomplete evidence to say the least.

Yet, despite that complaint, the book is worth investing several hours of your life to read and digest the material.
Jesus and THe Victory of God  Jun 27, 2007
It is a very comprehensive and informative book. Apart from all the critics, Wright has provided a much needed balanced overview of recent writings re the Historical Jesus and outlines a challenging pisture of the Central message of christianity.
Jesus and the Victory of God  Jan 9, 2007
A most detailed and excellent work, probably too technical or detailed for the ordinary reader but required reading for anyone studying the life and ministry of Jesus.
Scholarly Myopticism assures Obscurantist Results  May 10, 2006
This author, N.T. Wright,has a theory which develops into an agenda.Instead of sound historical study, he presents a work of speculative revisionism with arrogant presumpion on the reader to come out of his benightedness into Wright's new insight: "The new pattern that WE find fits into the prophetic profile of Jesus that WE are building up." He claims, "it is not going beyond the evidence to suggest..." when the only "evidence" is the basic theory he has devolved, spun in lacy cobwebs of his mind and not based on historical reading of the Scriptures. Thus, the Last Supper becomes for Wright a "metaphor". Dealing with Christ's miracles is awkward for Wright. Call them "mighty works" that might well have been "magic". "Few serious historians now deny that Jesus, and for that matter many other people, performed cures and did other starting things for which there was no natural explanation." Christ's resurrection from the dead Wright does not mention ...except to imply some symbolism. The cures attributed to Christ "and many others for that matter" (sic)he does not care to engage. Just ignore. History or terribly flawed research? "But Christan apologetics has moved on as well: 'miracles' are not advances as 'proof' of anythng much. What matters far more is intention and meaning." And Wright will tell repeatedly how we "credibly reconstruct". (I love the "apologetics has moved on" line. Moved on to what? Where?) Miracles prove nothing? Only to the irreconciled skeptic with a bad theory.According to the author,Jesus was a deluded messiah , and if you follow his theory of Christ's life and existence you know He had a "strange vocation", "spoke in riddles",that the "symbolism and story-telling of Jesus makes sense only..." as it fits into Wright's tortured and abberational scenario.Skepticism, not honest history calls miracles 'mighty works" that were "supposed events" that "friend and for alike believed him to be doing such things....and they were more or less true".
This book is NOT scholarly history. It reflects an author whose interpretation is authentically his own, yes, and devastating far from honest history. He ignores the strongest testimony: people who were present and wrote what Jesus said and did contemporaneously. They didn't fit his bald theories of interpreted "intent". Jerome A Urbik
