Overview

Father L. C. Fillion’s monumental The Life of Christ is a thorough and methodical exposition of the God-man, Jesus Christ. This massive work is a historical, critical, and apologetic text. As a history, Fillion’s work places special emphasis on Christ’s historical context and the culture and country he inhabited, and explores Jesus’ personality. As criticism, Fillion’s work uses textual and literary analysis to demonstrate the unmatched credibility of the Gospels. Lastly, as an apologetic, The Life of Christ confronts the nineteenth-century historical Jesus movement and the rationalism that assaulted the Christian faith. This classic work, translated from the French by Newton Thompson, provides an insightful exposition of Christ’s life and ministry fit for Catholic and Protestant alike.
