Synopsis

Portraits of Jesus is an introductory guide to the ways Jesus is depicted in the New Testament. Both college students and the general reader will find here a variety of New Testament understandings of Jesus that are rooted in critical reading of the four Gospels and Pauline letters. The authors of the four Gospels show considerable freedom in their handling of the words and deeds associated with Jesus. New Testament authors are not so much news reporters as promoters of Christian living. They shape their material to highlight who Jesus is and how to live according to his teaching and example. This book presumes neither religious faith nor lack of faith; its aim is to inform and to stimulate some fundamental questions.

Robert Imperato is professor of religion at Saint Leo University, Saint Leo, Florida. His other books are Early and Medieval Christian Spirituality (University Press of America, 2003), Christian Footings (University Press of America, 2000), and Merton and Walsh on the Person (Liturgical Publications, 1988). His first interests in religion were stimulated by yoga which he practiced while studying for a Masters Degree in developmental psychology at Columbia University. His religious formation has roots in the seven years he spent as a non-professed monk at the Abbey of Gethsemani followed by formal study of theology at Fordham University, where he received an MA and PHD.
