He then moves on to closer study of each narrative and its contribution to our understanding of Jesus, investigating things such as plot, characters, and theme.

This comprehensive critique documents the falsehood of these neo-atheist claims, correcting their historical and philosophical mistakes to show how we can get at the truth about the historical Jesus.

✏Jesus Behaving Badly Book Summary : Everybody likes Jesus. Don't they? We overlook that Jesus was Judgmental—preaching hellfire far more than the apostle Paul Uncompromising—telling people to hate their families Chauvinistic—excluding women from leadership Racist—insulting people from other ethnic groups Anti-environmental—cursing a fig tree and affirming animal sacrifice Angry—overturning tables and chasing moneychangers in the temple He demanded moral perfection, told people to cut off body parts, made prophecies that haven't come true, and defied religious and political authorities. While we tend to ignore this troubling behavior, the people around Jesus didn't. Some believed him so dangerous that they found a way to have him killed. The Jesus everybody likes, says Mark Strauss, is not the Jesus found in the Gospels. He's a figure we've created in our own minds. Strauss believes that when we unpack the puzzling paradoxes of the man from Galilee, we find greater insight into his countercultural message and mission than we could ever have imagined.

✏Parallel Lives of Jesus Book Summary : In this highly readable introduction to the Gospels, Edward Adams demonstrates how the four canonical Gospels function separately--as unique accounts of Jesus' life--and as narrative renditions of a shared story: the Fourfold Gospel. Building on the premise that the Gospels are ancient biographies or "lives of Jesus," Adams examines parallel Gospel passages, highlighting the similarities and differences between them. He begins by approaching the four Gospels generally, then looks at each of them individually, and finally considers six key Gospel passages to further explore the unity and plurality of the Gospels in a more focused way. Adams's lucid prose helps to make this text ideal for beginning students of the Gospels.
