Description
The author of A History of Christianity here gives us a succinct yet lively portrait of the man who inspired one of the world's great religions and whose teachings still guide us, capturing both the transfiguring message and the historical complexity of Jesus of Nazareth.

"Journalist-historian [Paul] Johnson's deliberately noncontentious account of history's most famous man is unapologetically, uncarpingly based on the New Testament. Nearly no other sources are mentioned, and the short further reading list admits nothing by any Jesus Seminar scholar or other revisionist. Since the book is longer than all four Gospels put together, it is obviously more than a conflationary synopsis. Johnson weighs what little is said about Jesus' childhood and youth and why no more is said; discusses Jesus' personal affect; notes the qualities of his teaching, especially in the parables; emphasizes his reservations about the miracles he performs; and analyzes how he differentially addressed men, women, children, and the aged. Johnson outlines the 'new ten commandments' that Jesus introduced in deed as well as word and with which he intended to prepare his followers not to change the world but to enter the kingdom of God. Lastly, Johnson inspects the Passion, the Resurrection, and their aftermath to Pentecost with intelligent faith."Booklist
