The Incomparable Christ

Full Product Description

"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.

"David Edwards describes John Stott as, with the exception of William Temple, '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 and '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; 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." Martin Turner, Methodist Recorder
