Product description
Who was - and is - Jesus of Nazareth? This is a simple question that every Christian must ask. A multitude of different voices and centuries of church tradition have made it difficult for us to see Jesus the way his own contemporaries saw him, and to understand him in the way that he wanted to be understood. This book places Jesus firmly within his own context, and shows how startlingly relevant he is to our own day as well. In this book, renowned New Testament scholar Tom Wright sets out to answer three simple but vital questions about Jesus: who was he, what did he do and why does it matter? The Jesus we might discover if we really looked is larger, more radical and more urgent than we ever imagined. And when we recognize Jesus, our next challenge is to follow him in his project of bringing God's wise, healing rule to bear on his world.
Product Reviews

'Tom Wright is, as always, brilliant at distilling immense scholarship into a vivid, clear and accessible form. This book is yet another of his great gifts to the worldwide Church.' Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury
