Jesus: A Short Life

John Dickson (Lion UK: Oct 1, 2008), 160 pages.

Rooted in scholarship and the Gospels, this straightforward account of Jesus draws upon reliable sources and dispels conspiracy theories as well as unfounded evidence to reveal the true man. The mists of speculation and fantasy surrounding each of the topics addressed — which include the historicity of the New Testament; Jesus’ birth and family; and his teachings, miracles, death, resurrection, and subsequent appearances — are cleared away, revealing the founder of Christianity in sharp focus. Closing chapters also address the impact of Jesus’ teaching and life on Christianity today. Beautifully illustrated with some of the best loved images of Christ, this is a reliable and readable biography.
