Description: In view of the proliferation of conflicting images of Jesus in the church, in the academy, and in popular culture, it is no wonder that his identity sometimes appears more elusive than ever. Seeking the Identity of Jesus brings together an interdisciplinary group of leading scholars ó from the fields of biblical studies, theology, and church history ó to focus on the complex problems surrounding the quest for the historical Jesus. Their perspectives are richly informed by Scripture, testimony from the churchís past, and experience of the risen Jesus in the present.
