The First Examination of the Implications of the New Historical Jesus Research for Contemporary Faith. In straightforward, accessible prose, Marcus J.

He also re-examines the major stories of the Old Testament vital to an authentic understanding of Jesus, showing how an enriched understanding of these stories can uncover new truths and new pathways to faith.
