Understanding Jesus

Peter S. Williams (Paternoster: Jan 2, 2012), 250 pages.

Peter Williams examines the Gospel accounts of Jesus’ life from an apologetic perspective, clearing the ground from pre-conceived ideas and prejudices and opening up five ways to consider the claims of Jesus’ life and ministry. The author brings a philosopher’s perspective to the quest for the historical Jesus and argues that understanding the spirituality of Jesus is the path to our own spiritual enlightenment. He takes issue with ‘new-atheist’ discussions of faith and historical Jesus studies before guiding readers through a cumulative case for the understanding of Jesus. ~ Book Description
