From the PublisherBooklist
"The Original Jesus is a popular account of the research of an important critic of the Jesus Seminar and includes a fine annotated bibliography. . . An excellent starting point for newcomers to historical Jesus research as well as a popular snapshot of current discussion for those already familiar with the debate."
"There's nothing I've read more concisely stated or more beautifully illustrated."
"The chapters are brief and easily read, presenting Jesus in the context of the political turmoil and messianic expectations of the times. . . Well written and easily read. . . Highly recommended."
National Catholic Reporter
"Well-written . . . a cultural analysis of some of the stories by and about Jesus that sheds new light on the familiar tales. . . Gorgeously presented, richly illustrated and visually pleasing as well as intellectually stimulating."
