Product description

This book means to explore who Jesus was, is, and is to come, and by what series of events this man of Jewish history came to be viewed by millions as a man of God-like powers in their present lives and their hoped for future." Rich in familiarity with Jesus' Jewish world, Gerard Sloyan helps us discover a Jesus thoroughly situated in his own time and place. Grounded in the New Testament gospels, Sloyan's study leads us to an already interpreted Jesus, distinctly portrayed by each evangelist. Going outside the New Testament, Sloyan takes us into the theological questions and developments that culminated in the affirmations of the councils of Nicaea and Chalcedon. This impressive, clearly written work challenges readers to see both the historical Jesus who preached the in-breaking of God's reign and the post-resurrection Jesus whom Christians named Lord and Savior.

Gerard S. Sloyan, STD, PhD, is professor emeritus of religion at Temple University and currently visiting professor at Georgetown University, Washington, DC. He has written extensively on Jesus, including The Crucifixion of Jesus (Fortress Press, 1995) and Why Jesus Died (Fortress Press, 2004).

Product Reviews

Gerard Sloyan is certainly an authority on Jesus! This short work-an amazing, very literate and accurate condensation of all important aspects of modern Christology-is the fruit of his earlier works.Catholic Books Review Clearly and engagingly written, this book is ideal for an undergraduate Christology course and a worthy summary of the author's life-time study and reflection.Horizons [A]n extraordinary accomplishment. . . . to study Jesus: Word Made Flesh is to receive the wisdom of a 'Church Father' and hence to enter further into the mystery of Christ.Worship [T]his is a responsible book, written by a responsible scholar, using his responsibility to serve both the church and the academy.The Catholic Biblical Quarterly Sloyan's approach, walking through various portions of the Scriptures with an eye to who Jesus is in each, yields valuable insights on almost every page.Libraries Alive The book is written in an engaging, confident style and serves the purpose of this series well.The Bible Today [A] deftly written examination, and a top pick for Christian studies collections.Midwest Book Review College teachers and scholar colleagues will find here a beautiful example of the contribution of a scholar who is in sure command of his subject, who has put together a compelling restatement and helpful analysis of the New Testament belief in Jesus the Christ, the Son of God and the Savior of the world. As Fr. Sloyan notes at the outset of his work, this is the fifth book on Jesus he has written, the first being a religious education aid written in 1960. This latest work, written nearly 50 years later, is his best so far. Donald Senior, CP, America
