Product Description

This collection of essays explores the impact of Jesus within and beyond Christianity, including his many afterlives in literature and the arts, social justice and world religions. This first volume focuses on selected historical afterlives of Jesus, including the Pantokrator of Byzantium and the Aryan Jesus of Nazi Germany. This collection is not an exercise in Christian apologetics. The contributors include scholars and religious practitioners reflecting on Jesus in their own cultural and religious settings. While the essays are original work grounded in critical scholarship, they are expressed in nontechnical language so that the information will remain accessible to nonspecialists.
