Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This book, which presents a recent debate between a former co-chair of the Jesus Seminar and an Evangelical scholar, as well as follow-up responses by four other New Testament scholars, brings the reader effectively and movingly into the heart of the contemporary fideist-evidentialist debate about the reality and meaning of Jesus' life and teachings. Editor Copan (Who Was Jesus?, Word Pub., 1996) gives Craig's conservatism the last word, but readers of many different convictions will find ample food for thought here.

    Hands down victory for Craig

    I don't know how Crossan even thought he could win this debate. He plays with his words until they don't mean anything. I thought it was a hands down victory for Craig, and if anyone still holds on to Crossan's views, they are simply non-logical

    Will the Real Jesus Please Stand Up?: A Debate between William Lane Craig and John Dominic Crossan

    The book in its entirety is really quite interesting mainly because of the responses by Blomberg, Borg, Miller and Witherington. In comparison the debate between Craig and Crossan is a disappointment, especially the performance by Crossan.

    Will the Real Jesus Please Stand Up?: A Debate between William Lane Craig and John Dominic Crossan

    I probably read this book too early before reading enough other material by members of the Jesus Seminar. Consequently, to make up for this deficiency I focused especially on the response by Marcus Borg. As far as the debate between Crossan and Craig was concerned, I thought it was won by Craig. After having read the entire book, however, I was left with an increased respect for the contributions of the Jesus Seminar.
