Book Description

Aug 1989
Some sought his death. Others left everything to follow him. Who was this Jesus, this son of a carpenter turned wandering teacher? Why did he provoke such extreme reactions? And why does he still do so today, more than two thousand years after his death? Jesus the Radical highlights the impact of Jesus against the backdrop of life in first-century Judea, with its customs, its Messianic hopes, its multi-faceted Judaism and its Roman overlords. Here are many fascinating insights into the story you thought you knew. "Sensitive and compelling . it confronts the reader with Jesus and lets him decide what responses to make." -Christianity Today R. T. France has taught at London Bible College and was principal of Wycliffe Hall, Oxford, from 1989 to 1995. He is the author of Matthew in the Tyndale New Testament Commentary series, The Evidence for Jesus, The Living God, and Jesus and the Old Testament.

5.0 out of 5 stars He knows the truth. 7 July 2001
By Li Wang - Published on Amazon.com
I have read the Chinese version of this book. I am trying very hard to buy this book in both Chinese and English versions.
This is the best book in introducing Jesus from last centuary.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Overview of Jesus 12 Jan 2012
By unclebuc - Published on Amazon.com
R. T. France has come to be one of my favorite biblical authors. A serious academic scholar (read his commentaries on Matthew and Mark in the NICNT and NIGTC), yet one who writes so accessibly. If you are looking for a concise picture of Jesus and what he was about, open your Bible and read this book, for it is bound to have you thinking about Jesus in ways that perhaps you never have. I am looking forward to teaching a class on the life of Jesus wherein this is the textbook chosen for study.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful work of fiction 14 Aug 2009
By Eric Cartman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It got kind of "preachy" in the middle, but I though it was entertaining. I prefer Robert Ludlum or Dave Eggers.
