Reviews

Beverly Roberts Gaventa, Princeton Theological Seminary
"With his singular combination of learning, wit, honesty, and humility, Dale Allison here reflects on the theological limitations and implications of the study of the historian's Jesus. Students at every level will find themselves instructed and even provoked by Allison's comments, but they will also come away agreeing that 'the unexamined Christ is not worth having.' ""

Scot McKnight, North Park University
"In the last 125 years there have been five truly epochal thinkers who altered the course of Jesus research: Martin Kรคhler, Albert Schweitzer, Rudolf Bultmann, Ernst Kรคsemann -- and the fifth one is Dale Allison."

Christian Century
"The very title of Allison's brief but engaging book signals that just as believers cannot be completely indifferent to the historical study of the Gospels without closing their faith to new challenges and insights, so historians, even if they are unbelievers, cannot escape the deeply theological nature of the life and teachings of Jesus. Allison is both refreshingly robust in his appraisals of the work of colleagues and disarmingly honest in his self-criticisms."
