From the Back Cover

"Regardless of what anyone may personally think of him or
believe about him, Jesus of Nazareth has been the dominant figure in the
history of western culture for almost twenty centuries." Jaroslav Pelikan

Jesus Christ has been the centre of history for two thousand years, and his
birth the pivot of our calendar. He is the focus of Scripture: as Luther
declared, the entire Scripture deals only with Christ everywhere. He is
the heart of mission, the message that countless Christians cross land and
sea, continents and cultures, to deliver.

In masterly surveys, John Stott looks at the New Testament witness, at the
way the church has portrayed Christ down the centuries, at the influence
Christ has had on individuals over the last two thousand years. Finally,
turning to the book of Revelation, he asks what Jesus Christ should mean to
us today. Here is the fruit of a lifetime of biblical study, rigorous
Christian thought, and devotion to the person of Christ.

Review
David Edwards describes John Stott as, with the exception of William
Temple, 'as the most influential clergyman in the Church Of England of the
20th century'.
It was appropriate, therefore, that for the millennium "London Lectures",
in fact founded by John Stott, he should have been invited to be the
lecturer. The topic in such a year could be none other than Jesus - 'The
Incomparable Christ'- a magnificent four-part overview of Jesus Christ
based upon these lectures.

Each Lecture is worked up into a section of the book:
the biblical record - 'The Original Jesus';
the teaching of the Church - 'The Ecclesiastical Jesus';
personal responses from great people - 'The Influential Jesus'; and the
challenge for today - 'The Eternal Jesus'.

As we might expect from John Stott, the book deals with issues in depth but
in a way that is easily accessible.

The final section of the book presents the eternal Jesus, interestingly
presented to us through comment upon the Book of Revelation. Here we have
what is almost a mini-commentary, taking this most difficult book and
showing us "the eternal Christ who never changes, but who challenges us to
follow him today".

This is a book to treasure, to stretch our minds and to be a helpful
resource in years to come. Above all else, it lifts up Jesus Christ, just
as John Stott has done in his lifetime of ministry.

Excellent book in four parts about Jesus in the New Testament, how the church has presented Jesus through the ages, how Jesus has inspired people through history and how we are challenged today by Jesus. Stott gives an amazing vision of Jesus, packing a lot of detail into his text. Yet with all this detail it remains and easy, flowing read, as well as being a great reference book.
