The Historical Christ and the Theological Jesus

Allison, Dale C., Jr. (Author)

Description

"Informally presents and evaluates complex--sometimes troubling--issues in scholarly discussion of Jesus Christ."
""Whatever one makes of these pages, they are the stammerings neither of an apologist nor of a skeptic but instead of an oft-confused Protestant who has come to his conclusions, modest as they are, quite gradually, and who may alter his uncertain mind about much tomorrow. Of two things only do I feel assured. The first is that, as unchanging things do not grow -- rocks remain rocks -- informed changes of mind should be welcomed, not feared. The second is this: the unexamined Christ is not worth having.""
-- from the introduction
In this book, which he describes as "my personal testimony to doubt seeking understanding," Dale Allison thoughtfully addresses ongoing historical-theological questions concerning Jesus. What should one think of the modern quest for the historical Jesus when there is such enduring discord among the experts, and when personal agendas play such a large role in the reconstructions? How much history is in the Gospels, and how much history does Christian theology require that there be? How does the quest impinge upon conventional Christian beliefs, and what might it contribute to contemporary theological reflection?"The Historical Christ and the Theological Jesus"is the personal statement of lessons that a respected participant in the quest has learned throughout the course of his academic career."
