Crossan was one of the premier scholars of Jesus in the world. Here he introduces the reader to the historical Jesus, relying on the historical record as much as possible, exploring what kind of man he was and what kind of world he lived in. A refreshing read and a highly informative one for those who want to understand the person before churches built institutions around him and his story.
