Item Description...
Hailed as "an event in the intellectual history of our time", Bornkamm's 'Jesus of Nazareth' marked a turning point in modern understanding of the Gospels and the elusive figure who stands behind them. While Bornkamm admits, with Albert Schweitzer and others, that it remains impossible to write a "biography" of Jesus, he shows in this book that it is possible to arrive at a reliable understanding of Jesus' thought and teaching and to achieve a historically sound picture of the sort of person Jesus was, as well as what he was trying to accomplish.

Publishers Description
Part of Fortress Press's classic text series. "This volume has justifiably held a leading position among scholarly presentations of Jesus' life and teachings."--Amos N. Wilder.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Interesting and Scholarly, But dated  May 11, 2006
Bornkamm's book was originally published in 1956. As such it has to be considered within its historical context, and Bornkamm suffers from not being able to take advantage of the enormous work in biblical scholarship since that time as well as the release of the Qumran documents. That being said, this is a well written and thought provoking book. It covers much of the same ground as other "Life of Jesus" books, although Bornkamm is neither sysmetic nor comprehensive in his coverage. The most appealing sections of the book are his analyses of the Kingdom of Heaven, the parables, and his approach to the crucifixion and messianic questions. Bornkamm tends to raise issues and avoids offering conclusions. Some readers will find that attractive.

An introductory student of the life of the historical Jesus may find this book valuable. More advanced students should probably look elsewhere.
