In a number of short surveys, John Stott examines how the church has portrayed Christ over the centuries.
Jesus Christ has been the dominant figure in the history of Western culture 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, and 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 Jesus Christ.
