Summary Pelikan discusses how each age created Jesus in its own image, discovering in his life and teachings the answers to fundamental questions of human existence and destiny. Studying the images of Jesus cherished by successive ages - from rabbi in the first century to universal man in the Renaissance to liberator in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries - Pelikan suggests that the way a particular age depicted Jesus is an essential key to understanding that era.--desc. from illus. ed
