Historical analysis of Jesus by a professor of the history of Christianity at the Sorbonne which concludes that we can't conclude much about the man or his teachings based "upon nothing save textual sources."
"Professor Guignebert opens up to us a hitherto unknown world--one where 'Jesus was born among Jews on Jewish soil, & his message was for Jews alone...Jews 1st carried it into Greek soil, where an extraordinary success awaited it...already influenced & prepared for its reception by Jewish propaganda.'"--from dust jacket back flap
"There is no book of recent years which will give the interested layman a more comprehensive account of what has been written & said about the life of Jesus & a fairer estimate of conflicting evidence. On the whole his own position is strongly influenced by the eschatological emphasis which was introduced into New Testament criticism by Albert Schweitzer."--Reinhold Niebuhr
