Jesus Christ is one of the most revered and, at the same time, maligned figures in human history. What is the truth about him? Can we reliably know anything at all? In this clear and authoritative book, a leading historian and theologian faces head-on the difficult questions about the historical Jesus. He invites readers to lay aside any preconceived ideas that may have and to examine the evidence. They may be surprised at the findings.

Review quote

"'The mosaic of Jesus, fully man and fully God, not myth but truth personified, has been preserved in the writings of the New Testament. Trusting the image that this unique collection of sources gives us is the safest way towards an unhindered encounter with Jesus Christ today.' - Carsten Peter Thiede"
