This work responds to the interest in the historical person of Jesus of Nazareth. After reviewing the important moments in the history of scholarship on Jesus, Barry Crawford explains why interest in research hs blossomed in the 1980s and 1990s after lying dormant for the previous two decades. He shows how recent advances in research (not only in biblical studies, but also in archaeology, cultural anthropology and sociology) have inspired a new generation of scholars to believe they can be more successful than their predecessors in recovering the historical Jesus.;Crawford then asseses the success or failure of some of the major studies of the historical Jesus publishing in the 1980s and 1990s, bringing up important touchstones for an effective critical apparatus by which to judge the truth or otherwise of the historical approach. In the end, Crawford argues, the search itself may be elusive. Scholarship is too often driven by the theological rather than strictly historical considerations, while the concern to describe the historical Jesus - in whatever terms - as the founder of Christianity tends to be a blind alley in the search for Christian origins. This books aims to make the connection between the two approaches.
-Publisher

Crawford provides an overview of the various current approaches to finding the historical Jesus. The text discusses Jesus in various guises, ranging from prophet, social revolutionary and rabbi, through to holy man, miracle worker and cynic.
