""This book makes available to the adult Christian a great deal of biblical research in a readable and popular format. It respects Jesus's Jewish heritage, locating him clearly in the complex and vibrant context of first-century Jerusalem. At the same time, it graphically presents the differing portraits of Jesus as they appear in the four Gospels, paying special attention to the accounts of his death and resurrection. Those who take up this book and read it will not only grow in their understanding of the biblical texts but will also find a rich source for spiritual reflection."" --Most Rev. Anthony M. Pilla, Bishop Emeritus of Cleveland ""[This book] invites the reader into the world of Jesus and the disciples, encouraging him or her to experience with them the life of first-century Palestine. The opening chapters are especially significant in their presentation of the contextual foundation of Jesus the Jew, revealing his own formation and growth as a devout Jew in a period of turmoil for the Jewish people. I would find the book especially useful as an introductory text for introductory religion and Christology courses at the college level and for adult education programs. It provides new insights into Jesus and his ministry which are especially meaningful for today."" --Diana L. Hayes, Professor of Systematic Theology, Georgetown University ""Finally, a book about Jesus that is both 'user friendly' and deeply insightful. This is a classy and deeply spiritual look at the Jesus of our faith, a Jesus we can approach without fear, and yet a Jesus who still awakens us and keeps us filled with awe and wonder. What Art Zannoni has done for believers is both an accomplishment and a gift for all who seek to follow the Lord more deeply. All who want to deepen their conversion journey will do themselves a favor by reading and delving into the message of these pages."" --David Haas, Director of the Emmaus Center for Music, Prayer, and Ministry, St. Paul, Minnesota Arthur E. Zannoni taught on the faculty of the School of Divinity of the University of St. Thomas from 1985-1991 and served as Associate Director of its Center for Jewish-Christian Learning. He is a two-time recipient of the Uhrig Foundation award for excellence in teaching and has received the Temple Israel Interreligious Award for this work in promoting interfaith dialogue in the Twin Cities. He regularly leads tours to Israel and conducts adult education programs, parish missions, and retreats based on the Bible.

Review:

Written in Greek about a Hebrew people before being translated into English, the Gospels tend to lose some of their force through transmission; not to mention that they are composed of parables, sayings and disjointed episodes that can be cryptic and even self-contradictory. Arthur E. Zannoni, an award-winning Christian writer, provides an intellectual believer's in-depth and revealing exploration of Jesus the man, his heritage, his teachings and his times. Each chapter appends discussion questions and suggestions for further reading.

From the Back Cover:

This book will provide the view of Jesus found on the Gospels placed in the context of the Jewish and Greco-Roman world of the first century of the Common Era.
