With characteristic clarity and insight, Australian scholar John Dickson offers a compelling introduction to Jesus as he is portrayed in the earliest historical sources. Dickson does not shy away from the diversity of the material, revealing Jesus in all his multi-layered complexity.


Tim Keller says it's "a unique resource ... it promises remarkably balanced, even-handed, fair-minded presentations of Christian beliefs about Jesus Christ - all deeply informed by the primary sources. I can't recommend this book enough."


Publisher Description


:A Doubter's Guide to Jesus is an introduction to the major portraits of Jesus found in the earliest historical sources. Portraits because our best information points not to a tidy, monolithic Jesus, but to a complex, multi-layered and, at times, contradictory figure. While some might be troubled by this, fearing that plurality equals incomprehensibility or unreliability, others take it as an invitation to do some rearranging for themselves, trying to make Jesus neater, more systematic and digestible.


After two millennia of spiritual devotion and more than two centuries of modern critical research, we still cannot fit Jesus into a box. He is destined to stretch our imaginations, confront our beliefs, and challenge our lifestyles for many years to come.


In A Doubter's Guide to Jesus readers will find themselves both disturbed and intrigued by the images of Jesus found in the first sources.
