Real Jesus

by Johnm on Sep 25, 2007

This book by a former Benedictine focuses on the Jesus Seminar and other schools of biblical research that seek to establish the historical Jesus and to define Christanity by parsing the New Testament and other first and second century writings. Johnson faults them (especially the members of the Jesus Seminar) for their shoddy scholarship, misuse of history, sloppy thinking, and indifference, if not outright, hostility toward traditional Christianity. He writes with passion and wit, necessary when dealing with topics such as methods of research that tend to the dry. A worthwhile challenging book that makes me want to read his more current offerings to see what he thinks of books written since 1995 when he published this work.
