The project has disseminated reviews and other information about Christian books since the start of the Millennium. We regret that it is no longer possible to sustain it.
Jesus the Christ
by Walter Kasper
Publisher:Continuum - A Bloomsbury Company
Cardinal Kasper, formerly President of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, and perhaps most familiar in that role, published this book - in Great Britain – in 1976. He tells his readers in his Introduction that he was persuaded to re-issue his book and this is the edition he puts before them in 2011. Again, in the Introduction he sketches the changes in theology among other things, which have taken place in the thirty years since first publication. Perhaps they have not been as unsettled and unsettling as the same period before 1976 but nonetheless this latter period has modified the emphasis of the first edition, and the Cardinal justly points this out . The welcome that the book received on first publication will surely be echoed in the reception of this re-issue.
