It is difficult to imagine a more careful, comprehensive, or detailed discussion of this controversial aspect of Christology than Dr. Harris has provided. The issues are largely syntactical, and this is a field in which he has already shown his mastery. With the publication of this book, a neglected topic has at last received the attention it deserves. This is a major work of scholarship from an outstanding able scholar.
—I. Howard Marshall, professor emeritus of New Testament exegesis at the University of Aberdeen
I have read Jesus as God with very great admiration. The author has shown a logical and judicious mind, a most impressive mastery of the biblical language, an exhaustive knowledge of the relevant secondary literature, as well as theological perceptiveness. I regard this as a really important contribution to New Testament scholarship, which no one who is seriously concerned with Christology can afford to ignore.
—C.E.B. Cranfield, professor emeritus of theology at the University of Durham
Learned, thorough, and provoking. It treats a neglected subject in a largely convincing way. Especially important is the intensive exegesis of the discussed texts.
