First published in 1941, this classic work of theology is a volume of immense knowledge, scholarship and patience. As a summary, but detailed, illustration of method and outlook, it is a model of lucid and orderly presentation. The author presents the Synoptic evidence on Jesus' conception of the Kingdom of God and of His own mission in relation to it, and discusses its significance with special reference to His eschatological views. Cadoux holds that the teaching of Jesus contains elements incompatible with beliefs widely recognised as indisputably true, and works to bring out Jesus' own understanding of His message.
