Reviews
"The Historical Jesus is a worthwhile addition to your library if you are a scholar, pastor, or layperson with particular interest in the intersection of the Jesus of history with the Christ of Christian faith."--Tawa J. Anderson, Calvin Theological Journal, November 2011
"The quest to construct a historically credible presentation of Jesus is now in its third iteration, and herein five top-ranked scholars set forth their cases and critique one another, resulting in a lively give-and-take. The resultant debate is evenhanded and illuminating, setting clear, stark alternatives before the reader. Highly recommended."--S. Young, Choice, May 2010
"Beilby and Eddy have compiled a fascinating 'virtual seminar' on the quest for the historical Jesus in their release, The Historical Jesus."--CBA Retailers + Resources, November/December 2009
"Beilby and Eddy, along with their authors, are to be commended for a job well done. I thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend this book."--Robert B. Stewart, Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society, March 2011
"Certain to spark sharp debate."--Bryce Christensen, Booklist, November 15, 2009
"James K. Beilby and Paul Rhodes Eddy succeed not only in identifying the major trends but also in bringing to the surface some of the assumptions in current historical Jesus research. They offer a sympathetic review of some of the major exponents of Jesus research from Reimarus up to the present day."--Pieter F. Craffert, Review of Biblical Literature, May 2011
