A Doubter's Guide to Jesus: An Introduction to the Man from Nazareth for Believers and Skeptics

Author(s): John Dickson (Contribution by)

Religion

"Our best information points not to a tidy, monolithic Jesus, but to a complex, multi-layered and, at times, contradictory figure." In A Doubter's Guide to Jesus, John Dickson is destined to stretch the imaginations of both believers and skeptics alike, confronting the beliefs on both sides. Dickson peels back the layers of the past to provide an eye-opening introduction to the major portraits of Jesus found in the earliest historical sources. Discover for yourself the many portraits of Jesus understood throughout ancient history.
