Reviews

J. Daryl Charles
-- Bryan Institute for Critical Thought & Practice
"Few are more highly qualified than Carl Braaten to offer commentary -- and enduring perspectives -- on the so-called 'quest for the historical Jesus.' As Braaten argues, the sundry 'makeovers' of Jesus constitute our own attempts to fashion -- and reduce -- Jesus to our own image rather than to remain in continuity with Scripture and with the historic Christian tradition. Braaten's conclusion is emphatic: Jesus Christ can never be the end-product of a scholarly 'quest'; rather, the necessary eyewitness accounts have already been entrusted to Christ's church through divine revelation. Whether or not we have the fortitude to embrace that witness is another matter." Lutheran Quarterly
"This is a timely book, accessible to both clergy and laity, and a strong restatement of Christological orthodoxy in view of its most recent critics." Reviews in Religion and Theology
"This book is an excellent read. . . . It presents a clear picture of the logic of orthodox Church teachings from one of the Lutheran Church's leading theologians. At the conclusion of each chapter, a list of questions for discussion is offered. This makes the book a practical and excellent resource for church study groups." Living Church
"In this tidy volume, designed for adult education in local parishes, Braaten presents a user-friendly introduction to the theology of the person and work of Jesus in light of the challenges presented by the popular work of new questers for the historical Jesus. . . . An excellent resource for people and pastors." Touchstone
"Not only an elegant little primer on Christology, but also a current review of the field by a senior scholar, concerned to transmit historical orthodoxy."
