Item Description...
Few would deny that a person named Jesus lived and died during the first century of this era. Yet opinions differ widely as to the reliability of the New Testament record of his life. In I Believe in the Historical Jesus, Marshall surveys the quest for the historical Jesus from the 19th century to the present, examines the methods used to extract historical information from the gospels, and investigates the role faith plays in a study of the life of Jesus. The gospel accounts of Jesus are reliable historically, not merely literary productions impossible to penetrate from an historical perspective, and Marshall's work is a ringing affirmation of belief in the historical Jesus. This edition includes a new epilogue and updated bibliography. I. Howard Marshall is Emeritus Professor of New Testament Exegesis and Honorary Research Professor at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, where he supervises postgraduate students in their theological studies. Professor Marshall's area of research has been Luke-Acts, the Pastoral Epistles and the theology of New Testament writers.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
THIS IS NOT THE 1972 EDITION!  Aug 24, 2007
I just bought this book and haven't read it, so take my rating with a grain of salt. However, everything else I've read by Marshall is excellent and furthermore he's very well regarded by a wide spectrum of biblical scholars.

In any case, the most important point I want to make in this review is that this edition is NOT the 1972 edition! It's a revised 2001 edition. Consequently, Mr. C. Price's review of the earlier edition isn't a fair or accurate assessment of this revised edition.
Buy Something Else from Marshall  Dec 23, 2004
I. Howard Marshall is a leading New Testament scholar who is especially well known for his works on Luke-Acts, including Luke: Theologian and Historian and his commentary on The Acts of the Apostles.

This book was written in 1972 and is a response to some rather unsophisticated articulations of the Jesus Myth, including the early work of G.A. Wells.

In the introduction, Marshall cogently describes the state of the question by pointing out that in the mid-20th century, one of the few "authorities" to consider Jesus as a myth was a Soviet Encyclopedia. He then discusses the then recent work of G.A. Wells, who he finds to be imminently unpersuasive.

Wells proves to be prophetic in his statement that Wells' articulation of the Jesus Myth was unlikely to gain many adherents, especially among scholarly circles. Though writing more than 30 years ago, Marshall was correct that Wells' impact on the scholarly community would be nil. Wells has convinced no one of importance.

Nevertheless, Marshall's own treatment of the question is somewhat unfocused and dated. Despite its title he does not focus exclusively on the Jesus Myth. Nor does he interact with the more recent efforts of commentators such as Earl Doherty (simply by virtue of having written more than 30 years ago).

Though I highly recommend all of Marshall's writings on Luke-Acts, readers would probably be better served by obtaining more recent discussions of these issues.
