The Veritas Series brings to market original volumes engaging in critical questions of pressing concern to theologians as well as philosophers, biologists, economists, and representatives of other disciplines. The Pope and Jesus of Nazareth provides essays by some of the leading scholars in Britain, continental Europe and the USA to highlight the insights and limits of the Pope's reflection on Jesus. Specifically, engages with the book from critical, cross-disciplinary and different faith perspectives. The objective is to generate a wider debate on the issues raised and to make a substantial contribution to contemporary thinking on Jesus.
