This book is exactly what it purports to be - a survey of the life of Christ. The 18 chapters in this book cover quite a bit of ground. Part 1 (3 chapters) discusses some methodological issues, including the role of presuppositions, sources, and chronology. Part 2 (the remaining 15 chapters) discusses key events or characteristics of the life of Christ. Because so much ground is covered, no topic is really explored in depth, though there are quite a few perceptive and cogent observations. However, I often found myself wanting more, but it was outside the scope of this work. Usefully at the end of every chapter is a list of references for those wanting to pursue a particular topic with more rigor. While the book hits apologetic notes, the intended audience is clearly believers. This would be a great first resource for believers wanting a firmer grounding in the life and person of Jesus, but there are better books to offer a non-believer interested in learning about Jesus.
