-Publisher

Jesus Christ is probably the single most influential figure in world history. Whatever people believe about him, the religion he founded now claims more followers worldwide than any other. But who was this preacher from Nazareth? And what was the world like in which he lived?Peter Walker places Jesus firmly in the Jewish world of 1st-century Palestine, exploring the religious and social background of his life, analyzing his ministry and teaching and contrasting this with Jewish expectations of the Messiah. With engaging, easy-to-read text and illuminating, full-color illustrations, Walker helps you to understand how Jesus related to the world around him and how he pursued his radical mission.One of six volumes in the IVP Histories Series, Jesus and His World draws on biblical scholarship and sharp insight to bring this central figure of world history to vibrant life.
