About-

This is a book about Jesus of Nazareth. It is not a book about "story," nor about "narrative theology." Hans Frei was not a theologian of story or of narrative in any general way, and this book is neither about the narrative quality of our existence and the gospel's relation to that quality, nor about the narrative shape of the Scriptures as a whole and the call on us to place ourselves within that narrative.
Rather, this is a book about the way in which Jesus of Nazareth's identity is rendered by the Gospels--largely the Synoptic Gospels, particularly the Gospel of Luke, and especially in the passion and resurrection sequences--by means of a certain kind of narrative.
--from the Foreword by Mike Higton

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Hans Frei has written one of the most interesting and provocative christological proposals in recent American theology. It continues to stimulate discussion and to bear fruit for the faith of the Church and the life of academic theology."
George Hunsinger
Princeton Theological Seminary

"No one could have anticipated the significance of this book when it was first published. Intellectually, we simply were not ready for it. Developments in theology and philosophy that made Frei's work so important were largely unknown to the general public. Now, thank God, many have 'caught up to Frei' and can appreciate the significance of this extraordinary book. For if Frei did nothing else, he made the Gospels again property of the church."
Stanley Hauerwas
Duke University
