Abstract:

"This Book explains, in an accessible manner, the history of the quest for the historical Jesus and how this quest has always been related to the search for God. In addition, the book proposes a scheme for understanding the relationship between history and theology that avoids confusing the two. Finally, in what is arguably the book's most distinctive contribution, it presents what could be called a "Jesus theology" based on aspects of Jesus' life and teachings."--Jacket.
