Description

The past two or three decades have witnessed significant activity in research on the Jesus of the Gospels and history. In fact, there has been such a plethora of publication on such a wide variety of facets of this issue that it is difficult to keep pace with the rate of publication. In this volume, Dunn and McKnight have collected and provided introductions to a wide cross-section of essays on the topic, ranging from classic essays by the likes of Bultmann, Cadbury, and Schweitzer to the most recent investigations of Horsley, Levine, and Wright. This volume will be a very useful book for courses and seminars on Jesus or the historical Jesus, because it draws together in one place a wide variety of perspectives and approaches to the issues.

Authors represented include: P. S. Alexander, D. C. Allison, P. W. Barnett, M. J. Borg, R. Bultmann, H. J. Cadbury, P. M. Casey, G. B. Caird, B. Chilton, C. E. B. Cranfield, J. D. G. Dunn, R. A. Horsley, J. Jeremias, M. Kähler, W. G. Kümmel, E. E. Lemcio, A.-J. Levine, G. Luedemann, J. P. Meier, B. F. Meyer, R. Morgan, J. A. T. Robinson, E. P. Sanders, A. Schweitzer, K. R. Snodgrass, G. N. Stanton, P. Stuhlmacher, G. Theissen, N. T. Wright.

Reviews

"The hard work, insight, and creativity of the two editors of this important volume on the historical Jesus must be applauded right here at the start. James Dunn and Scott McKnight are two seasoned New Testament scholars who are well versed in the debate on the so-called historical Jesus. In this tour de force they worked through an endless volume of literature on this subject, from the start of the debate in the late 1700s until the present, to produce an introduction to the “quest of the historical Jesus” as well as to get to the heart of what this “quest” is all about." — Stephan Joubert, Pretoria, South Africa in Review of Biblical Literature, July 2006.

"...quite excellent and is highly recommended for libraries and graduate classes on Jesus." --Dennis Ingolfsland, Crown College, St. Bonifacius, MN, in Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society, December 2006.

"In this really useful book the editors have collected 35 classic essays or extracts from major books in twentieth-century historical Jesus studies. The range and standard of presentation is impressive (the layout is excellent and the original pagination is always indicated) and the book will be useful for scholars, teachers and students. Of the 35 essays, Bultmann wins with three contributions, 8 are German (or at least wrote originally in German), 8 are British, 11 are North American and 2 are Pacific Islanders (one Australian and one from New Zealand--although both their pieces were written in Britain!). Twenty-eight are men, and one is a woman, I am not sure about ethnic minorities. The editors state that "the desire to see and hear Jesus as he was seen and heard by the fishermen and villagers of first-century Galilee is not in itself antithetical to faith" (p. xii). This positive tone is reflected in the selection of a number of relatively "conservative" voices and distinctly "theological" essays (as well perhaps in the relative absence of extremely skeptical voices). There are seven sections, each with a brief introduction by one of the editors." --Peter M. Head (Tyndale House), in Journal for the Study of the New Testament ,29.5 (2007)
