Summary Book Review A Quest for the Post-historical Jesus by William Hamilton:
Download or read book A Quest for the Post-historical Jesus written by William Hamilton and published by Burns & Oates. This book was released on 1994 with total page 304 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Christian theology has always been the most comfortable with the idea that there are only two intellectual spheres, belief and unbelief. But what if there should be a third space between belief and unbelief? What if Christianity is no longer true in the traditional sense but continues to be important long after it has ceased to be true? And specifically in connection with Jesus, how does one speak about Jesus in a world that does not and need not believe in him? Such questions form the background to this fascinating book. If, as it seems, historical method has given us all that it is capable of giving, and that does not prove to be much, an examination of contemporary fictional treatments of Jesus takes on new interest. So William Hamilton here examines twentieth-century Jesus fictions written by novelists, playwrights, poets, from Elizabeth Goudge and Robert Graves to Gore Vidal and A.N. Wilson, from T.S. Eliot and W.H. Auden to Stevie Smith. On the way to this central discussion he also considers Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Emily Dickinson from the nineteenth century; theologians like Gerd Theissen, Graham Shaw, J.L. Segundo, and Leonardo Boff; and films including Pasolini's The Gospel According to St. Matthew and Jesus of Montreal. Witty and entertaining, as well as profound and disturbing, A Quest for the Post-Historical Jesus seems set to become a post-modern classic-Schweitzer a century later.

Summary Book Review The Historical Jesus and the Christ of Faith by George Demetrion:
Download or read book The Historical Jesus and the Christ of Faith written by George Demetrion and published by Wipf and Stock Publishers. This book was released on 2017-01-11 with total page 100 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Historical Jesus and the Christ of Faith examines the conflicting views of Marcus Borg and N. T. Wright on the long-standing question of the relationship between the life and times of Jesus of Nazareth and the Christ of faith as depicted in the New Testament. Demetrion has created a study designed to supplement and expand on the discussion laid out in Borg's and Wright's widely read, The Meaning of Jesus: Two Views. While the author is more empathetic to Wright's emphasis on the continuities between the Jesus of history and the Christ of faith, as illuminated throughout the New Testament, he is critical of Wright's overemphasis on history. In placing his interpretive emphasis on the revelatory dynamic of the canonical Scripture and the Great Tradition of Christian orthodoxy, Demetrion calls for a fourth quest for the historical Jesus that starts from a position firmly rooted in biblical faith and works backwards in search of historical roots. In this, he draws on the Pauline vision of "God . . . reconciling the world to himself in Christ" (2 Cor 5:19) as his underlying hermeneutics. In exploring the broad range of issues that underpins the continuity/discontinuity question, Demetrion has provided a resource designed to span a wide audience, from Christian adult study groups interested in tackling books like The Meaning of Jesus to graduate level seminary students and professors.

Summary Book Review The Quest for the Plausible Jesus by Gerd Theissen:
Download or read book The Quest for the Plausible Jesus written by Gerd Theissen and published by Westminster John Knox Press. This book was released on 2002-01-01 with total page 344 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Should the dissimilarity between Jesus and early Christianity or between Jesus and Judaism be the central criteria for the historical Jesus? Gerd Theissen and Dagmar Winter argue that the criterion of dissimilarity does not do justice to the single most important result of more than two-hundred years of Jesus research: that the historical Jesus belongs to both Judaism and Christianity. The two authors propose a criterion of historical plausibility so that historical phenomenon under question can be considered authentic so long as it can be plausibly understood in its Jewish context and also facilitates a plausible explanation for its later effects in Christian history. This book is a cooperative project between Dagmar Winter and Gerd Theissen and represents the fruit of many years of their research on the historical Jesus.

Download or read book In His Name written by Elisabeth Hurth and published by Peter Lang Pub Incorporated. This book was released on 1989 with total page 336 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Offering a complement and a corrective to Albert Schweitzer's survey of the Leben-Jesu-Forschung, the study examines the emergence and development of the American quest for the historical Jesus. The study describes how the interest in the historical Jesus quest grew in America under the aegis of the Harvard-Gottingen axis and was adjusted to apologetic purposes on the basis of the post-Lockean theology of evidences. The study follows the course of the quest into biblical fiction and the Social Gospel movement and demonstrates that the American quest was marked by a pronounced confidence in the knowability and availability of the historical Jesus which suppressed a sustained concern with form critical procedures and Kerygmatic theology."

How does the quest impinge on conventional Christian beliefs, and what might it contribute to contemporary theological reflection? --From publisher's description.
