About this book
The former Bishop of Durham is now Research Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at the University of St Andrews, and a regular broadcaster and respected author of bestselling books such as "Simply Christian" and "Surprised By Hope". Here, he considers how the church should present the story and identity of the central personality of their faith, Jesus of Nazareth. This is an accessible introduction to Tom Wright's thinking about Jesus.
Modern critical biblical scholarship often points out how the church's teachings about Jesus have become encrusted with tradition so that it is hard to see what the New Testament really says about him. So how should the church present the story and identity of Jesus of Nazareth?
