Jesus The God Within: Foundations of a Forgotten Faith focuses on the human Jesus of history and not the divine Christ of faith.
An internationally award-winning cultural historian, Daniel L. Wick provides a much-needed secular interpretation of the deep context of Jesus' emotional and intellectual world. Dr. Wick does so by reconstructing and reinterpreting that ancient world using a stunning variety of novel historical methods that depart sharply from the conventional (and frequently circular) approaches employed by traditional Jesus scholars.
Dr. Wick's analysis is based on methodologies only recently developed by historians to explore the complexities of past times. The result is a more profound understanding of the complexities of Jesus' world and a greater appreciation of his unique religious genius.
