A Public and Political Christ
The Social-Spatial Characteristics of Luke 18:35–19:43 and the Gospel as a Whole in Its Ancient Context
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"More than just another account of the portrait of Jesus, Bart Bruehler's A Public and Political Christ offers a fresh glimpse into the Lukan portrait of Jesus in light of his convincing reevaluation of the ancient social-spatial spheres of public, political, and private. This work deftly balances detailed study of a significant transitional section of the Lukan Gospel with the broader portrait of Jesus and its narrative role in that Gospel. Here is a new voice in Lukan and Gospel studies to whom we need to listen!"

"The breadth of this book is immense. Bruehler brings thorough research and balanced judgment to bear in this study that probes hermeneutical method, Lucan theology, and the political character of Jesus' ministry. I recommend it most highly."
