Take Up and Read: Who Is This Jesus?

Enjoyed listening to you on Justin Brierley

This current blog series on Reflections is intended to encourage Christians to read more vigorously by providing a beginner’s guide to some of the Christian classics in such fields as theology, philosophy, and apologetics. Hopefully a very brief introduction to these important Christian texts will motivate today’s believers, as St. Augustine was called to in his dramatic conversion to Christianity, to “take up and read” (Latin: Tolle lege) these classic books.


This week’s book, Who Is This Jesus?, is by veteran Christian theologian Michael Green and is in my estimation a contemporary classic on introducing the person of Jesus Christ. This volume, while amazingly readable, presents a succinct but intellectually sophisticated summary of Jesus Christ and the beginnings of historic Christianity. If I could recommend one popular book about the life of Christ in an evangelism-apologetics context, this would be the work.
