Summary

Summary

John the Baptist was one of the most fascinating and misunderstood people of the Bible. A prophet of two worlds, he called out to the Israel of his own generation and to Christian believers of today to heed the most radical demands of conversion and newness of life. What do modern Christians know of this popular and effective man who appeared so mysteriously on the fringes of society? Why did his vision for Israel become such a challenge to Jesus and to the early Christian Church? How are the New Testament traditions about the Baptist recognized and responded to today?
