Book Description:
Christ is readily recognizable to us in all sorts of images, in painting, sculpture, film and illustration; his likeness is familiar, and yet the Gospels and the early Christian texts do not provide any information about his appearance. This book explores how the challenge of representing Christ has been confronted. How do you represent someone who is both God and man, both human and divine, immortal, but with a mortal body? Every act of representing Christ requires a choice about what kind of Christ one wants to show. Every image is laden with assumptions about who Christ is. The making of the image of Christ becomes a statement of belief, a sort of visual theology.
