Abstract:

In [this] book, [the author] subjects all the sayings of Jesus to ... informed scrutiny ... Aware of the limits of our knowledge but immersed in what we do have-both the "official" gospels and associated Jewish and early Christian texts - [the author] sieves through every quote ascribed to Jesus to let the reader get as close as possible to the charismatic Jewish healer and moralist who changed the world. The result is a book that creates a revolutionary and unexpected picture of Jesus - scraping aside the accretions of centuries to approach as close as we can hope to his true teaching. http://www.penguin.com
