About the book:

This volume is adapted from Jaroslav Pelikan's classic work "Jesus Through the Centuries". Pelikan has condensed the original text and enhanced the book with 150 illustrations, most in colour, that give a further dimension to his thoughts. His commentary that accompanies the illustrations provides information on the art, architecture, individuals, and events that Jesus has inspired over the ages. In this book, Pelikan discusses how each age created Jesus in its own image, discovering in his life and reaching the answers to fundamental questions of human existence and destiny. Studying the images of Jesus cherished by successive ages - from rabbi in the 1st century to universal man in the Renaissance to liberator in the 19th and 20th centuries - Pelikan suggests that the way a particular age depicted Jesus is a key to understanding that era.
