Summary

Summary

Who Was Jesus? is a collection of articles revolving around the dialogue between Jewish New Testament scholar Peter Zaas and Christian apologist William Craig, with a focus on the differing Jewish and Christian assessments of Jesus of Nazareth, and the question of Jewish-Christian relations. Their points of agreement and disagreement, as well as how interest in the historical Jesus continues to promote dialogue and controversy, are fascinating and informative.

Library Journal Review

This surprising book sums up a short lecture series and the stream of essays written in response. While books on interfaith dialog are not uncommon, it is quite singular to have a book that takes up an area of disagreement and finds no easy resolution. Especially trenchant are the essays of Herbert W. Basser and the prolific Jacob Neusner. While the lack of reconciliation here may not be comforting to all readers, this is a salutary addition to the literature of Jewish-Christian interaction. For most collections. (c) Copyright 2010.
