2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The centrality of the death of Jesus for the Christian faith can hardly be overstated, and interest in the subject is "red hot." As each generation of Christians comes to terms with its historical claims, and its theological import, it is only natural that its implications merit reexamination. Taking a studied look at the death of Jesus - from the Old Testament's perspective to that of extracanonical accounts - Carroll and Green put us in their debt for their comprehensive survey of the effects and implications of a central tenet of Christianity."--BOOK JACKET
