This book makes accessible to lay readers the arguments laid out in Jesus and the Victory of God (SPCK, 1996). But Wright does more than just rehash these arguments: he adds a discussion of the resurrection, and addresses the prickly problem of relevance. In the first six chapters, he tackles many of the questions of the historical Jesus debate. He then addresses how all these historical-cum-theological issues are significant for Christians living in a postmodern world.

Press Reviews

Drawing from the roots of his 1996 work, Jesus and the Victory of God, one of the world’s best known New Testament scholars seeks to tackle what is described as ‘the historical Jesus’ debate.

The life and death of Jesus is shrouded in challenge, debate and questions. Wright, Research Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at the University of St Andrews, seeks to make the arguments and research of the 1996 publication accessible to lay people, adding a resurrection discussion to the original text.

In an introduction to the revised book, he highlights why he decided to revisit the publication: principally the challenges – both political and religious on a global scale – brought to the world of the 21st century.

Wright guides readers through the life of Jesus, drawing on the messages from the Old Testament and offering insights into New Testament accounts of the life of the Son of God.

As always, Wright’s work is written in accessible rather than academic language, with an inherent appeal to a popular mass audience.

- Unknown

In this compelling historical picture of Jesus, Prof. Wright breaks new ground in his research and analysis and sets before the Church a very positive vision which will bring inspiration and encouragement to those endeavouring to commend the good news of the Gospel amid all the turmoil and confusion of the postmodern world.
