Any such study is something of an imaginative reconstruction. This one comes across as very middle-of-the-road, skeptical of the sources & of the skeptics, touching base unobtrusively with recent literature & building a picture of background & event in the life of a man whose models were Hebrew prophets, rather wild Galilean holy men, & (to an extent) the Qumran community memorialized by the Dead Sea scrolls.

His conviction that he was especially required to inaugurate a new era of obedience to God among fellow Jews (the Kingdom) led inevitably to Roman execution. When Grant comes to account for the subsequent influence of this most important person who ever lived, he points to resurrection talk in the air in those times & to Jesus overwhelming personality. It doesnt sound much more convincing than the alternatives.

But overall this is the best recent book of its kind, accessible to the general reader, with no traces of condescension or biography under church bells.--Kirkus (edited)
