Jesus Darkly is a compelling account that shows how the New Testament not only sheds light on the past but also fills in for Jesuss absence in the present.

For people of faith, Jesus Darkly gives a thorough, readable, theological grounding for understanding the New Testaments multiple memories of Jesus, probing our own knowledge of Jesus, now darkly, but one day face to face.

Judith Stack, Minister for Faith and Community Life, Gethsemane Lutheran Church, Minneapolis, MN

Jesus Darklyis a remarkable achievement, which brings together cutting-edge memory research and literary study to offer an artful mosaic of Jesus. This book is a dynamic, original, and fascinating contribution to biblical scholarship.
