Item Description...
With Seeing Through the Eyes of Jesus, John Baggett invites readers to adjust their understanding of Jesus. Rather than looking at Jesus - the popular conception of the "historical Jesus" - Baggett contends we should instead look with Jesus at the realities of God and neighbor as he perceived them. Baggett incorporates the witness of the key human relationships of Jesus, and why those earliest believers and friends considered him divine. Baggett then asks how Christ's transcendence can ultimately translate to significance for life and faith in today's story. "John Baggett has written a brilliant and original work. He has blended sound Biblical scholarship, anthropological theory, and fresh creative insight to unveil a portrait of Jesus that is historically believable and profoundly relevant for our own times. This is a book that should be read by all who wish to take Jesus seriously while facing and engaging the challenges of our postmodern world. I recommend it with unreserved enthusiasm." - William Jay Peck University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill

Reviews - What do our customers think?
AMAZING BOOK!!!  Nov 29, 2009
A lot of books have been written about Jesus. If you can only read one, this should be it. Every page is packed with rich information about Jesus' life and times. Yet the Author writes in a style that is easy to read. This is especially a great read for anyone with a college education who is trying to make sense of Biblical faith. I found it does a good job of explaining a lot of stuff that can get in the way of people's faith. After reading this book I feel that I know Jesus in a way I did not know him before. I strongly recommend it.
Doorway to Faith  Aug 11, 2009
I enjoyed this book. It is, at once, very scholarly and very down to earth. Unlike may theological works, it is very accessible and readable. The delicious footnotes added depth and texture and increased the intrigue.

I learned a great deal about Jesus the person and how he encountered and saw things in the turn of the era cultural context. It thoroughly grounded Jesus in reality. It was possible to see him as a real person with a real life. The first half of the book gave me a way to see how Jesus saw things.

It was the second half of the book that showed me at least some of what Jesus saw. That is, perhaps, too simplistic, but it fleshed out the whole perspective and added a much deeper dimension to what it means to be a person of faith.

This book is about Jesus, but, in a real way, I found it was as much about me as it was Jesus. Jesus became a doorway - not to the world of the first century, but to the my world of the 21st century. The door opens and the reader is invited to take the step into the world of faith. I had to wear the shoes - at least try them on. It's clear that this world of faith is not some esoteric, set apart place, but is here in the very midst of our real, day to day lives. Seeing through Jesus' eyes does not show us a different reality. It shows us our own reality and invites us to act in our world as person of genuine faith.

This book has a great deal to say to people struggling with what it means to be authentic in our faith. If I were a clergyman in a local congregation, I bet I'd get a year's worth of sermons out of it. I think it ought to be used in seminaries and the retreats clergy use to keep their edge sharpened. I can see it used in adult groups in local congregations. Studying it in those contexts would deepen a lot of conversations and touch a lot of lives.
Well Written and Thought Provoking  Jul 15, 2009
This beautifully written book achieves a rare combination of inspiration and scholarship. Dr. Baggett asks the question, "Would it make a difference in our lives today if we viewed reality through the eyes of Jesus?" In a series of chapters informed by historical evidence and cultural information, he helps us to understand Jesus' view of reality by looking at the way Jesus viewed God as "Abba", and all of his neighbors as "children of Abba". The result is a book that challenges us to examine our own relationships, particularly with the social outcasts of our own time.
Outstanding contribution to defining what life is all about!  Nov 19, 2008
I can't stop reading this book! It's possibly the best overall description of what I feel Jesus was/is all about. This is a must-read whether you're interested in the "Historical Jesus" or the "Jesus of Faith". Mr. Baggett packed this book with so much information, it actually justifies the rather high price. The introduction alone makes it worth reading, and the footnotes are like a separate book! His writing is studious yet very down-to-earth. I'd like to read it with my wife and save a copy for my son to read someday. I hope many people read this book - it would make the world a better place.
