Editorial Reviews

Peter Jones
Exposes, behind the high claims of scientific neutrality and excellence, the thoroughgoing religious and so often naturalistic presuppositions underlying the movement. . . . should be heard by a wide audience as we enter a new epoch of radical criticism.
Moises Silva
At last! an account of the continuing quest of the historical Jesus that is readable but responsible, clear but penetrating. Professor Strimple has an intellegent commitment to the authority of the Gospels, and yet (or perhaps because of it) he is able to deal fairly with opposing viewpoints. Students will profit greatly from this book.
Allen Mawhinney
Professor Strimple has given us the best introductory survey of its kind. Thorough—he covers all the bases. Penetrating--- he cuts to the heart of the issues. Clear—he separates the fundamental from the peripheral. Challenging—he demands that God’s people wrestle with tough questions. Uncompromisingly faithful—his commitment to God and God’s Word is evident on every page.
