Reviews

". . . a provocative new volume . . . well worth the effort . . . . He has used an impressive array of sources and his discussions of the Greeks and Hebrews are superb . . . . [His theory is] brilliantly presented" - Fides et Historia

". . . researched and organized well. . . offers readers a fresh opportunity to reflect on the preoccupation of Christians with history and on the implications that the emergence of the historical-critical method has for basic assumptions of Christian belief. . . . thoroughly fascinating . . . ." - Theodolite
