Familiar Stranger is a very readable introduction to that elusive figure known as "the historical Jesus"--his life, his world, his sayings and doings, accounts of his death and resurrection, and his followers' efforts to understand him.Three important features set Familiar Stranger apart from the many other available books on Jesus. First, it's targeted to general readers but doesn't "dumb down" in its attempt to inform them. Second, it's ideologically balanced, exhibiting a refreshing lack of agenda or ulterior motive beyond the desire to genuinely present what we can and cannot know about Jesus today. Third, it brings together the two most fruitful models for understanding Jesus and his mission--Jesus the "moral sage" and Jesus the "eschatological prophet." The result is a truly well-rounded picture of Jesus.Given its concision, clarity, and thoroughness, McClymond's Familiar Stranger is ideal for individuals and study groups in search of an up-to-date, trustworthy guide to the historical Jesus.ContentPrefaceJesusA Thumbnail PortraitPiles of BooksA Short History of Jesus ResearchSources and MethodsWhat Can We Know?
