This was one of my textbooks used in my Spiritual Direction certification programs. I loved it. It was my first exposure to an in depth discussion about what I had experienced most of my life in terms of who Jesus was in respect to the role he plays in the divine plan. In a nutshell it is a very thorough evaluation of how Jesus came to be acknowledged by his followers in the various terms we commonly refer to him as:

Annointed King of David's lineage
Jesus Christ

This is a very accessible book by a fine Catholic biblical scholar. His goal is to provide an introduction to the New Testament's view of Christ and covers what Christ seem to think of himself as well as the disciples and others. It is a good start if you want to dig more into the early church's evolving view of Christ.

Tempered, even-handed, cautious (to a fault), a wonderful little book. His appendix on the texts that deal with Jesus being called God is helpful, even if I don't agree with several of his designations. Overall, reverential and intellectually honest. I must read more of R.E. Brown!

Helpful to know which texts are clearest representation of Jesus' divine nature. Overall, too skeptical.
