THE DEATH OF CHRIST

Here we have a new and significant study of the central theme of Christianity, in which Dr. Knox, Professor at Union Theological Seminary, New York, argues that Jesus probably did not make the kind of claim for himself which the Gospels make for him, believing that some of the traditional conceptions of Jesus' self-consciousness reflect seriously, however unintentionally, either upon his sanity or goodness as a human being or upon the authenticity of humanity itself. The book has three divisions, dealing with the extreme circumstances of Jesus' death, its meaning for him, and its meaning in and for the early Church. This is an important book for all serious Christians who seek to understand even more fully the deepest mystery of their faith which is at the same time the fullest revelation of the love of God which will not let man go.
