This volume consists of twenty-one studies on a subject of supreme importance, the New Testament understanding of the person and work of Jesus Christ. All the main questions surrounding the earliest thinking about Jesus of Nazareth are addressed, including Canon, the use of the Old Testament, miracles, pre- existence, sacrifice, and the end of the age. The collection is dedicated to the memory of Professor George Caird of Oxford, whose life and work were devoted to laying aside the accumulated prejudices of the centuries and letting the Bible speak for itself. Professor Caird's many books represent the kind of deeply penetrating questions to be asked of the biblical writers if the Bible is to remain a relevant book for modern man. In the same tradition each contributor to The Glory of Christ in the New Testament has sought to raise new questions - questions whose answers will both advance current debate and stimulate discussion for many years to come.

The Church of England Newspaper `every essay in this book is worth reading, and some are of considerable importance' Journal of Theological Studies, Vol 39, 2, 1988 'The NT expert, the theologian and the working pastor will all find much to stimulate from this expensive but worthy volume.'
