“I regard it as a high privilege to be associated with this volume. There are few gifts more precious than this.” --Randall Centaur

“T.R. Glover goes beyond the pros and cons of interpreting a phrase or an episode. From the historical testimonies, he sees a Figure emerging that speaks with unique depth. He takes the words of Jesus seriously and ponders them until they reveal the mind of the Master and the Master’s new and challenging exposition of what God means, what sin means, what his choice of the cross means. He says things such as ‘Jesus has a genius for friendship, a gift for understanding the feelings of men.’ And a gift of ‘arresting phrase.’ Jesus urges ‘seriousness in reflection,’ and also an ‘emphasis on doing.’ For Jesus, God is the great Fact by which he lives, and prayer is attuning ourselves to that great caring Reality which knows and embraces all living things. We need a concentrated and strenuous effort to get there.” -John Hoad, Translating Jesus for Today

Originally published in 1920, The Jesus of History was prepared after the urging of a number of leading Christians for the British Student Christian Movement. A perennial bestseller, It comprises ten detailed chapters examining the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. Thoroughly recommended for inclusion on the bookshelf of any Christian theologian or historian, it also contains a wealth of information and anecdote that is still useful and relevant today. Contents Include: The study of the gospels; Childhood and youth; The man and his mind; The teacher and the disciples; The teaching of Jesus upon God; Jesus and man; Jesus’ teaching upon sin; The choice of the cross; The Christian church in the Roman Empire; Jesus in Christian thought. Glover also incorporated material from a variety of his articles that had been published in the periodicals of the day. The Jesus of History is an important book for every student of Christian history. You will never look at the Lord Jesus in the same way.

"I believe that no one will read Mr. Glover's description of the parable-teaching of the Lord Jesus Christ without a whole series of fresh and fruitful thoughts." -Randall Centaur (From the Foreword)
