In search of Jesus: insider and outsider images
This study, which looks at traditional and alternative ideas of the true Jesus, traces both the quest of the historical Jesus within the Christian movement, and the encounter between the Jesus story and the world beyond the Church. The book analyzes a range of insider and outsider images of Jesus, some popular, some scholarly, some hotly debated. It draws on popular literature, religious tradition, art and even film to elucidate its quest for Jesus.
