The Historical Christ and the Theological Jesus

The Historical Christ and the Theological Jesus

Dale C Allison (Jr)

$25.99

Paperback

Whatever one makes of these pages, they are the stammerings neither of an apologist nor of a skeptic but instead of an oft-confused Protestant who has come to his conclusions, modest as they are, quite gradually, and who may alter his uncertain mind about much tomorrow. Of two things only do I feel assured. The first is that, as unchanging things do not grow - rocks remain rocks - informed changes of mind should be welcomed, not feared. The second is this: the unexamined Christ is not worth having."
^ from the introduction

^^In this book, which he describes as "my personal testimony to doubt seeking understanding," Dale Allison thoughtfully addresses ongoing historical-theological questions.

  • What should one think of the modern quest for the historical Jesus when there is such enduring discord among the experts
  • when personal agendas place such a large role in the reconstructions?
  • How much history is in the Gospels
  • how much history does Christian theology require that there be?
  • How does the quest impinge upon conventional Christian beliefs
  • what might it contribute to contemporary theological reflection?
The Historical Christ and the Theological Jesus is the personal statement of lessons that a respected participant in the quest has learned throughout the course of his academic career.
