'... this book does not offer any startlingly new interpretations of Jesus, and is a far more reliable guide than many that do.' Times Literary Supplement '... for readers with a sufficient depth of interest ... it will be an introduction to a very wide range of sources and ideas. Its essays go far beyond the scope of even the fullest 'reference books', in the usual sense of the term ...'. Contemporary Review '... the contributors ... aim responsibly to inform non-specialists. Students will also benefit from perusing them. Theological libraries at all levels will want this work ... This Companion will give pleasure to many ...'. Theological Book Review 'The audacious claim of a 'Companion to Jesus' is tantalizingly realized by this volume.' Henry Wansbrough, Religion and Theology 'Speaking personally, this collection will draw me back time and again to wrestle with the issues raised. It can be read with profit by students and interested lay people alike and I commend it warmly.' Howard C. Bigg, Biblical Studies 'Here is a ... consistent attempt to take the historicality of Jesus seriously and to integrate it with orthodox Christian tradition.' The Heythrop Journal
