Judging Jesus : World Religions' Answers to "Who Do People Say That I Am?" Paperback / softback
Few persons have had greater impact on history than Jesus of Nazareth.
That he existed is generally conceded. Who he was remains a major issue. Since great religions claim to possess basic and unique truths about the human venture, the Christian message about Jesus challenges other great religions.
Much of world history is marked by the responses of great religions to this Christian challenge.
In gospel accounts, Jesus asks of his disciples, "Who do people say that I am?" This author explores how other world religions have responded to this question over the centuries.
The first chapter explains how religions function as stories by which we live. Following chapters trace answers to Jesus's question given by voices from major world religions: Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism.
The final chapter explores how the great religions view the ultimate fate of other believers.
