About "The Continuing Voice of Jesus"
"Boring traces in masterful fashion the role that early Christian prophets played in the transmission of sayings of Jesus and in the way these sayings were taken up into the canonical Gospels. With the deft touch of a seasoned detective, Boring examines Jesus' sayings to uncover the imprint that any might bear of having been handed on by early Christian prophets. Convincingly, he shows that early Christian prophets re-presented authentic sayings of Jesus, or modified Jesus' sayings, or even uttered new sayings in the name of the exalted Jesus. Thus, through the mediation of early Christian prophets, Jesus both spoke to the church after Easter as a historical figure of the past an as the exalted Lord of the present and future.. Clearly written and closely reasoned, this book sheds light on a much neglected area of Gospel research and will benefit immensely seminary professors, students, and clergy." ---Jack Dean Kingsbury, Aubrey Lee Brooks Professor Emeritus of Biblical Theology, Union Theological Seminary in Virginia
