Overview

This latest volume in the Faith and Scholarship Colloquies series examines the history and impact of historical Jesus research. Weaver and Charlesworth have gathered an impressive array of voices in this engaging collection.

John Dominic Crossan (Emeritus, DePaul) provides a fascinating tour of the development of historical Jesus research, exploring the debate that such research has sparked in the community of faith and offering his own proposals about the future of these studies. E.P. Sanders (Duke) lucidly discusses the methods scholars use to determine “how we know what we know about Jesus.” Jewish scholar Amy-Jill Levine (Vanderbilt) engages in a lively consideration of the difficulties of applying the results of historical Jesus research to contemporary lives. Finally, James Charlesworth (Princeton) examines the sources and methods involved in Jesus research and offers a provocative outline of the results of such research.

James H. Charlesworth teaches at Princeton Seminary and is the author of several books, including The Old Testament Pseudepigrapha and the New Testament (Trinity). Walter P. Weaver, Emeritus Professor of Religion at Florida Southern College, is the author of The Historical Jesus in the Twentieth Century, 1900-1950 (Trinity).

For: Clergy; seminarians; undergraduate religious studies majors.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Two distinguished editors, Princeton's Charlesworth and Florida Southern's Weaver, publish the papers from Florida Southern's 1998 Biblical Symposium. The resulting five essays are designed to guide the reader through the thicket of controversy surrounding the research into the historical figure of Jesus. John Dominic Crossan's essay ("Why Is Historical Jesus Research Necessary?") revisits a central theme in much of his recent work, demonstrating how the search for the historical Jesus strengthens faith rather than weakens it. Crossan as always is a fundamental voice in this research, sound and judicious. E.P. Sanders of Duke asks, "How do we know what we know about Jesus?" and surveys the source material in the manuscript as well as the oral tradition. Vanderbilt's Amy Hill Levine provides a refreshing essay, merging this historical debate with pastoral concerns as she answers life-crisis questions from her students with insights from this area of Jesus studies. Charlesworth's own essay returns the reader to one final look at the source material and provides an overview of which texts scholars have conjectured to be historical. This impressive book will open this controversial and sometimes disturbing research for the general reader and the student alike. (Apr.) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
