Christian Jesus by Kenneth Cragg
Book DescriptionThere are so many versions of 'The man from Nazareth' as to make The Christian Jesus liable to seem a pretentious or aggressive title. That a Christian Jesus exists for historic faith is not in doubt -- and is explored here with the help both of poetry and theology. Diverse versions of a 'Christian Jesus' do not preclude the sundry cases for the 'Muslim Jesus', 'the Hindu Jesus', and most of all for the 'Jewish Jesus'. Indeed the third, during the last half century, has been vigorously presented by Jewish scholarship. Anti-Semitism lurks around perceptions of Jesus as the Christ, and vigilance is in order against the threat it holds for open-hearted study. Jesus as supremely Jewish has never sanely been in doubt. But 'Of what manner of Jew?' is much contended. He only has the 'Christian' descriptive inside the abiding reality of the 'Jewish'. It was from the very heart of 'Jewishness' and its 'Messiah' that he and his immediate Jewish disciples gave to human history a confidence concerning 'God in Christ' -- a confidence instinctively and rightly called 'Christian'. New Testament writings tell a faith -- of which Jesus is the theme and centre -- read as the incidence of the divine

Books By Author Kenneth Cragg
God's Wrong is Most of All, Paperback (February 2006)
'Because of' is plainly there in broken faith, angry blasphemy, base injustice, and 'the sins of the world'. Perhaps the other is known for real in the drama where all these, being suffered, were representatively turned to our salvation. That they were, this book explores.
Certain Sympathy of Scriptures, Paperback (May 2004)
The crucial sequence of the Scriptures - alike in the Bible and the Qur'an - is through a cosmos created, for a creaturehood entrusted, by virtue of revelatory direction, mediated by prophet-hoods. This book explores the issues that unify Christianity and Islam.
Faiths in Their Pronouns, Hardback (September 2002)» View all books by Kenneth Cragg
The aim of this work is to search the liability for pronouns as religions use them, and to discuss the doctrines and the institutions that enshrine "we" and "us" and "ours" in the "why" and "how".

Author Biography - Kenneth Cragg
Kenneth Cragg was first in Jerusalem in 1939, and subsequently became deeply involved in areas of faith between Semitic religions under the stress of current politics. He later pursued doctoral studies in Oxford where he first graduated and became 'Prizeman' in Theology and Moral Philosophy, and where he is now an Honorary Fellow of Jesus College. He was a Bishop in the Anglican Jurisdiction in Jerusalem and elsewhere in the Middle East, and played ecclesiastical roles in Africa and India. A Certain Sympathy of Scriptures is a companion book to his Readings in the Qur'an (1988; 1999), and more broadly to his Faiths in Their Pronouns: Websites of Identity (2002). Other works by Bishop Cragg, and published by Sussex Academic Press, include: With God in Human Trust -- Christian Faith and Contemporary Humanism; The Weight in the Word -- Prophethood, Biblical and Quranic; and The Education of Christian Faith.
