Publishers Description
Designed for readers with little to no knowledge on the subject, this accessible and honest survey introduces the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. Using only the most reliable historical sources, this study clears away the myth and reveals a man who challenged the contemporary norms of society and religion, associated with social outcasts, demanded compassion toward the needy, and subverted imperialism. Insight is also offered into Jesus' teachings and parables in an effort to uncover their true meanings. The role and impact of Jesus in his own time, throughout history, and in today's world is also provided.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Historically accurate and believable  Oct 27, 2009
This is the best book about Jesus I have read. Dickson is a historian, so he keeps within the facts that mainstream historians can affirm. Dickson is a convert from a background of non-belief, formerly a singer in an obscure rock band, and not too old, so he writes in a fair-minded, non-technical way that doesn't browbeat the reader. As the title says, if you simply want to find out about Jesus, this book will give you a good picture without any hype, leaving you to make up your own mind.

It is very difficult to find a suitable book on this topic. Everyone has their own opinions, and most allow those opinions, either for or against belief in Jesus, to lead them to conclusions that others find difficult to share. Christians sometimes claim more than others can accept; non-believers tend to do the same in the opposite direction; and scholars tend to be so careful and pedantic that the reader ends up not knowing what to think. I like this book because Dickson is a fair-minded believer who only goes as far as history allows him to and who explains Jesus in his context as a first century Jew. He gives us the facts clearly, offers his conclusions based on the facts, but doesn't try to press us to convert.

Highly recommended.
