Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: For almost two millennia, Jesus' story has been retold in various forms and fashions but in the last century a new way of reimagining the man from Galilee has sprung up in the form of novels about the life ofJesus. While the novels themselves are asvaried as their authors, this work aims to introduce readers to some common literary strategies and theological agendas found in this phenomenon by surveying a few prominent examples. It also explores the question of what happens when we examine theintertextual play between these reimaginings and their Gospel progenitors as we allow these contemporary novels to pose new questions to their ancient counterparts. An intriguing hermeneutical circle ensues as we embark on our quest for the fictional Jesus and accompany his incarnations as they lead us back to re-examine the canonical portraits of Jesus anew.

Download or read book The Quest for the Historical Jesus after the Demise of Authenticity written by Jonathan Bernier and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2016-11-17 with total page 224 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: For two centuries scholars have sought to discover the historical Jesus. Presently such scholarship is dominated not by the question 'Who was Jesus?' but rather 'How do we even go about answering the question, "Who was Jesus?"?' With this current situation in mind, Jonathan Bernier undertakes a two-fold task: one, to engage on the level of the philosophy of history with existing approaches to the study of the historical Jesus, most notably the criteria approach and the social memory approach; two, to work with the critical realism developed by Bernard Lonergan, introduced into New Testament studies by Ben F. Meyer, and advocated by N.T. Wright in order to develop a philosophy of history that can elucidate current debates within historical Jesus studies.

Summary Book Review Re-Writing Jesus: Christ in 20th-Century Fiction and Film by Graham Holderness:

Download or read book Re-Writing Jesus: Christ in 20th-Century Fiction and Film written by Graham Holderness and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2014-11-20 with total page 256 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: At the heart of Christian theology lies a paradox unintelligible to other religions and to secular humanism: that in the person of Jesus, God became man, and suffered on the cross to effect humanity's salvation. In his dual nature as mortal and divinity, and unlike the impassable God of other monotheisms, Christ thus became accessible to artistic representation. Hence the figure of Jesus has haunted and compelled the imagination of artists and writers for 2,000 years. This was never more so than in the 20th Century, in a supposedly secular age, when the Jesus of popular fiction and film became perhaps more familiar than the Christ of the New Testament. In Re-Writing Jesus: Christ in 20th Century Fiction and Film Graham Holderness explores how writers and film-makers have sought to recreate Christ in work as diverse as Anthony Burgess's Man of Nazareth and Jim Crace's Quarantine, to Martin Scorsese's The Last Temptation of Christ and Mel Gibson's Passion of the Christ. These works are set within a longer and broader history of 'Jesus novels' and 'Jesus films', a lineage traced back to Ernest Renan and George Moore, and explored both for their reflections of contemporary Christological debates, and their positive contributions to Christian theology. In its final chapter, the book draws on the insights of this tradition of Christological representation to creatively construct a new life of Christ, an original work of theological fiction that both subsumes the history of the form, and offers a startlingly new perspective on the biography of Christ.

Summary Book Review Fictional Transfigurations of Jesus by Theodore Ziolkowski:

Download or read book Fictional Transfigurations of Jesus written by Theodore Ziolkowski and published by Wipf and Stock Publishers. This book was released on 2002-04-12 with total page 326 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Many novels revolve round the figure of Jesus. Some of the finest of them are defined by Ziolkowski as fictional transfigurations of Jesus. They share a modern hero patterned on Jesus the culture-hero, whose life consisted of the motifs of the last supper, lonely agony, betrayal, trial, and crucifixion. The aesthetic challenge of adapting this most familiar story for their generation has attracted an unusual number of great writers, among them Papini, Kazantzakis, Hesse, Mann, Greene, Faulkner, and Gore Vidal. The form began with the new image of a humanized Jesus which developed in the 19th century. The interest in religious paranoia and hysteria at the turn of the century instantly expanded its potentialities as novelists began to explore the theme of christomania. This was followed by studies of Jesus as a mythic figure and then Marxist-oriented portraits of Comrade Jesus. Finally the form became inverted into parody in the Fifth Gospels in which not Jesus, but Judas, is the central figure.

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.

Download or read book The Theological Turn in Contemporary Gothic Fiction written by Simon Marsden and published by Springer. This book was released on 2018-09-21 with total page 210 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This study examines theological themes and resonances in post-1970 Gothic fiction. It argues that contemporary Gothic is not simply a secularised genre, but rather one that engages creatively – and often subversively – with theological texts and traditions. This creative engagement is reflected in Gothic fiction’s exploration of theological concepts including sin and evil, Christology and the messianic, resurrection, eschatology and apocalypse. Through readings of fiction by Gothic and horror writers including Stephen King, Joyce Carol Oates, Peter Straub, William Peter Blatty and others, this book demonstrates that Christianity continues to haunt the Gothic imagination and that the genre’s openness to the mysterious, numinous and non-rational opens space in which to explore religious beliefs and experiences less easily accessible to more overtly realist forms of representation. The book offers a new perspective on contemporary Gothic fiction that will be of interest to students and scholars of contemporary Gothic and of the relationship between literature and religion more generally.

This book was released on 2010 with total page 312 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Fictional reconstructions of the Gospels continue to find a place in contemporary literature and the popular imagination. Present-day writers of New Testament–based fiction are considered to be part of a tradition formed in the mid-to-late twentieth century. Yet the foundations were laid earlier still by writers like Oscar Wilde, George Moore, and Marie Corelli who, in turn, drew influence from other works of biblical scholarship. The latest in the English Association Monographs series, The Historical Jesus and the Literary Imagination paints a convincing picture of the relationship between nineteenth-century biblical scholarship and literary works that raises interesting questions for scholars working at the intersection of literature and theology.

Download or read book Orthodoxy, Modernity, and Authenticity written by Heather Bailey and published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing. This book was released on 2020-10-21 with total page 355 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Ernest Renan was one of the most renowned European intellectuals of the second half of the nineteenth century. Yet, the impact of his most popular work, Life of Jesus, has been underestimated when not altogether ignored. While commonplace now, the idea that Jesus was merely human was at one time a novelty, with significant socio-political, cultural, and religious implications. A case study in the Russian encounter with modernity, Orthodoxy, Modernity, and Authenticity: The Reception of Ernest Renan’s “Life of Jesus” in Russia demonstrates that Renan’s book has had long-lasting and broad appeal in Russia because it presents an alternative to a strictly materialist worldview on the one hand, and an Orthodox worldview on the other. Renan offered his readers the possibility to accept the tenets of modernity while still retaining both an admiration for the importance of religion in history and a sense of religious feeling or even belief in a higher religious ideal. Assessments of Renan’s alternative belief system, whether positive, negative, or mixed, were often simultaneously evaluations of the moral, socio-political, and spiritual condition of European society in general and Russian society in particular. The interpretive history of Renan’s Life of Jesus in Russia reveals a persistent disillusionment with a strictly materialist interpretation of history and of life.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Ziolkowski explores the religious implications of the figure of Don Quixote in Western literature from Cervantes to the present.While scholars and critics in the past have often called attention to the secularizing tendency of modern literature, to the numerous fictional adaptations of the Christ figure on the one hand, and the innumerable literary descendants of Don Quixote on the other, this study is the first to examine a lineage of characters in whom the images of the alleged savior and the mad knight are combined.After considering Don Quixote as the first modern novel, and taking into account its relationship to religion, society, and censorship in seventeenth-century Spain, Ziolkowski traces the history and fate of Don Quixote, the character, through a series of religious transformations over the centuries, focusing on three novels that adapt the Quixote figure: Henry Fielding's Joseph Andrews, Fyodor Dostoevsky's The Idiot, and Graham Greene's Monsignor Quixote. Ziolkowski argues that, given the increased secularization and decline of religious consciousness over the last several centuries, any pursuit of religious values or ideas becomes questionable and this appears &"quixotic&" insofar as it stands in contradiction to the sociohistorical context. He concludes that religious existence, for the few who pursue it in suffering, which means that the religious person feels temporally displaced for adhering to a seemingly obsolete faith and lifestyle.
