In this popular yet academically grounded look at Jesus, liberation theologians Dorothee Soelle and Luise Schottroff offer a corrective to the Jesus of history research recently made popular through the work of the Jesus Seminar. By situating Jesus within his community of friends--who played a large part in his life, ministry, and movement--the authors show that the story of Jesus has not come to a close. Rather, Jesus of Nazareth demonstrates how his works, words, and inspired community pose timeless challenges for contemporary life.
This book includes sixty-seven color illustrations, a glossary, chronological table, map, and brief annotated bibliography.
