At the heart of the Christian faith stands a man, Jesus of Nazareth. Few people seriously question whether he existed in history. But many, influenced by the more sceptical scholars, doubt that the Christ of orthodox Christianity is the same as the Jesus of history.

In this important book, historian Paul Barnett lays the doubts to rest. He uncovers the methodological weaknesses present in some forms of critical scholarship, demonstrating a failure to account for important early evidence about Jesus. Once the evidence is properly marshalled, a picture of Jesus emerges that fits well with orthodox belief in him.
