'An important example of what we need more of: serious scholarly examinations and debates on the historicity of Jesus and what methods to use in resolving it. It includes papers that for specialists are required reading on this topic.' --Richard Carrier, author of 'Proving History: Bayes's Theorem and the Quest for the Historical Jesus'.
'Marks an important milestone in the debate concerning mythicism in New Testament scholarship.' --Thomas Bolin, St Norbert College, Wisconsin, USA
'This volume contributes to a crucial development, namely moving historical investigation beyond the usual restrictions of the historical critical method, particularly beyond reliance on the theory of oral tradition, and bringing it into new terrain, especially that of literature.' --Thomas L. Brodie, Dominican Biblical Institute, Limerick
