Baker & Taylor
Disputes the claim of the Jesus Seminar that Christianity is based on the historical figure of Jesus found in the Old Testament

Blackwell North Amer
Powerfully challenging the scholarship of the media-hungry Jesus Seminar, respected New Testament scholar Luke Timothy Johnson argues that Christian faith is founded not upon a historical Jesus that scholarship can reconstruct, but on the resurrected Jesus proclaimed by the New Testament and Christian tradition. He states, "The real Jesus is not simply a figure of the past but very much and above all a figure of the present." Provocative and timely, The Real Jesus exposes the fundamentally misguided quest for the historical Jesus by the Jesus Seminaractually a small group of mostly marginal scholars - and by such scholars as John Dominic Crossan, Burton Mack, and Marcus Borg.

& Taylor

Refuting the idea that history determines faith, a theologian and scholar argues that the quest for the historical Jesus is a misguided effort and that the "real" Jesus can be found in the pages of the New Testament. $20,000 ad/promo.
