Book Description

The figure of Jesus is of singular significance in the modern Christian tradition -- but what do we actually know about his life as a man? In this wide-ranging review of the literature, journalist and politician John Mackinnon Robertson digs into the historical record to create a composite vision of Jesus and assess the credibility of the scant information we do have.

Review of The Historical Jesus by by J. M. Robertson

a priori assumptions
From a review of the preamble and the chapter titles, it seems clear that this author, although well intentioned, falls into the trap of assuming that Christianity (and Judaism?) is a man-made religion and fits into the model of anthropology and myth (in its technical sense) rather than being a revealed religion. The disparaging terms used of virtually all other researchers does the author no credit. The deliberate use of a high language register is intended to add weight to the writing but merely obfuscates. This book will likely appeal to those who would like ammunition to attack Christianity from a quasi-scientific position.
