Synopsis

A century after Albert Schweitzer s Quest of the Historical Jesus, modern historians with new techniques are back on the trail. In the most comprehensive survey yet published, David Boulton presents an engrossing account of the debate between contemporary scholars on what we can know about the human Jesus of history before he became the divine Christ of faith. The best and most thorough account of the breadth and variety of historical Jesus scholarship. Lively, informed, fair, and highly recommended. Marcus Borg Brilliant and timely... Everyone ought to read it, especially those with no sympathy for religion and its crazier adherents... David Boulton is an investigative journalist and the book is an enormous achievement, with its vivid descriptions of what scholars have uncovered... Apart from the excitement of the story of the historical quest, here is the perfect resource for people who want a one-volume guide to a multi-volume industry. It is all here, and it is as up-to-date as you are likely to get. Richard Holloway, former Bishop of Edinburgh, Primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church A great place to start the search for the Jesus of the past and his relevance for the present. Robert Funk, Director, Westar Institute and the Jesus Seminar If you know anything about David Boulton you will know how lightly he wears his erudition and with what wit. Anne Ashworth, editor The Universalist A unique treasure. A fair, objective and exhaustive summary of historical Jesus discoveries... Scholarly, yet lucidly written for non-academic readers... A masterly achievement. Lloyd Geering, International bible scholar
