    In the world of New Testament biblical scholarship, we are in the midst of the third Quest for the Historical Jesus.The media have shown more than a casual interest in the Quest. In 1998, PBS produced a four-hour documentary, 'From Jesus to Christ,' and, as recently as June 26, 2000, ABC presented Peter Jennings' 'Search for Jesus', a two-hour documentary. Both of these relied heavily on members of the Jesus Seminar, a group of liberal Protestant scholars, who explain away much of what the Four Gospels say about Jesus as myth: the early disciples' need to explain the death of Jesus. One of these scholars, John Dominic Crossan, goes so far as to theorize that there was an empty tomb because there was never a burial!It is indeed unfortunate that neither documentary included Luke Timothy Johnson among the scholars presented.He has shown us that when you subject the Scriptures to the ciritcal standards of modern history and sociology, the results of the quest are extremely limited!In this book, his finest to date, he raises the question: Is Jesus living or dead? The Church worships a living Lord who rose from the dead, while the Quest for the Historical Jesus focuses on a historical Jesus that is dead.I highly recommend this book to every Christian who feels that there needs to be a response to the Quest. Luke Timothy Johnson makes just such a response.
