The Challenge of Jesus


A compelling historical picture of Jesus that also rings true to the resurrected Christ of Christian belief, worship and experience.

Written by a world-renowned theologian and communicator, hailed by Newsweek as ‘the world’s leading New Testament scholar’, reflecting on, among other things, Jesus’ self-understanding and what he really meant by the ‘kingdom of God’.

This book makes accessible to lay readers the arguments laid out in Jesus and the Victory of God (SPCK, 1996). But Wright does more than just rehash these arguments: he adds a discussion of the resurrection, and addresses the prickly problem of relevance. In the first six chapters, he tackles many of the questions of the historical Jesus debate. He then addresses how all these historical-cum-theological issues are significant for Christians living in a postmodern world.
