`Carpenter's Jesus is about as objective as possible, while giving every justifiable emphasis to the real and persistent forcefulness of the moral teaching of this charismatic personality.' Kathleen Nott, The Times `an excellent, straightforward presentation of up-to-date scholarship ...I could find nothing with which to disagree.' David L. Edwards, Church Times `Mr Carpenter has obviously made a thorough study of the latest New Testament scholarship; but he has also read the gospels with great care, pretending to himself that he was doing so without preconceptions, as a historian newly presented with the source material ...the most extraordinary achievement.' Philip Toynbee, Observer This book is intended for students of Religion, Christianity, comparative religion fro sixth form upwards.
