A new 'life' of Jesus written by one of the outstanding scholars of his generation, it offers a complete resource on the 'Historical Jesus' debate. With an overview of the various positions taken on who the historical Jesus was, Casey provides a helpful and accessible tool for understanding how the historical Jesus has been received and understood, with attention paid to the contortions in evidence in the last century to prove that Jesus was not Jewish.

Book News
Casey (emeritus, New Testament languages and literatures, U. of Nottingham, England) presents material he has gathered and analyzed over many years on the historical Jesus, placing his life and teachings within the context of his time and culture. By independent, he signals that he does not belong to any religious or anti-religious group, but wields tools of a historian to find, evaluate, and interpret objective evidence and to seek valid historical conclusions. His topics include historically reliable sources, birth and upbringing, call and ministry, God, Jesus' ethical teaching, conflicts with his opponents, Christological terms, death in Jerusalem, and whether Jesus rose from the dead.
