He speaks around the country in avariety of venues on matters related to the study of the Historical Jesus. In his new book, he focuses on the historical Jesus and eschatology, concluding that the Jesus was not aHellenistic wonder worker or teacher of pious morality but an apocalyptic prophet.

    An excellent book on some of the questions of the historical Jesus. The author doesn't bombard you with his own view, he summarises everyone else's thinking from his own vast reading and research, then adds some logic of his own, whilst being clear on the problems of inevitable bias from all sides and the limits of what can be known. Feels like the last thing you'll ever need to read on this topic, though of course for me it won't be!
