Item Description...
Jesus of Nazareth died on a cross at the hands of Roman justice around the year 30 A.D. Thousands of others perished in the same way, and many people before and since have suffered far more gruesome torments. Why then is Jesus, Gerard Sloyan asks, uniquely and universally remembered for his suffering death? How has his death brought solace to many millions? To answer this question, Gerard Sloyan in this powerful historical tour de force tracks the legacy of the cross across two millennia of Christian reminiscences, piety, art, speculation, and mythicizing.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Jesus's death in historical context  Mar 17, 2007
Fr. Sloyan has done a credible job of placing the story and meanings of Jesus's death and resurrection within the historical context of Church development. Thus, he helps us to better understand their meaning as learned in the canonical writings, and as the religion evolved from Judaism to Christianity and then towards contemporary understanding. The breadth of the historical developments are extremely welcomed. The conciseness of the book is very welcomed, but the writing style could be smoother.
