Publisher's Summary

A Doubter's Guide to Jesus is an introduction to the major portraits of Jesus found in the earliest historical sources. Portraits because our best information points not to a tidy, monolithic Jesus, but to a complex, multi-layered and, at times, contradictory figure. While some might be troubled by this, fearing that plurality equals incomprehensibility or unreliability, others take it as an invitation to do some rearranging for themselves, trying to make Jesus neater, more systematic and digestible.

After two millennia of spiritual devotion and more than two centuries of modern critical research, we still cannot fit Jesus into a box. He is destined to stretch our imaginations, confront our beliefs, and challenge our lifestyles for many years to come.

In A Doubter's Guide to Jesus listeners will find themselves both disturbed and intrigued by the images of Jesus found in the first sources.

I enjoyed the book so much I listened to it back to back

I have listened to dozens upon dozens of audiobooks on audible and this is the first time I’ve felt compelled to write a review.
As a lover of history I enjoyed learning how the early christians, contemporary jews and romans saw the most important person in human history. As an Australian I appreciated the Australian references made throughout. As a Christian I appreciated the call to emulate Christ in his servitude, love for the oppressed and desire to improve the lives of those around us.
