In her new book Who was Jesus and What Does it Mean to Follow Him?, Dr. Nancy Elizabeth Bedford, the Georgia Harkness Professor of Theology at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, helps us consider the identity and mission of Jesus of Nazareth. Readers will learn about the incarnation, how Christians have understood Jesus to be both human and divine, and what his radical teachings and ministry can mean for us today. Bedford looks closer at how Christians through the centuries have understood who Jesus is and explores communal and individual practices for following him.
