Item Description...
Can scientifically-minded people understand Jesus in a way that does not require them to sacrifice their intellect for their religion? Using modern historical scholarship, the results of archaeology, and tools provided by other scholarly disciplines, Marvin Cain combines the skills of a university religion professor and an electrical engineer to set forth a straightforward and objective portrait of Jesus as a first-century man. Initially conceived for an audience of scientists and engineers, Jesus the Man will appeal to those at home in the modern world.

A Wonderful Book!  Jul 2, 2002
This book brought Jesus to me for the first time. If anyone has been bogged down by the church's interpratation of Jesus, this book will set you free!!! The scholarship is wonderful. Dr. Cain is brillant.
A real contribution  Aug 15, 2000
This is a wonderful book. With a fresh approach to many aspects of the story of Jesus. As an example, Cain suggests that the church was really born as Jesus and his followers went through the little towns of Galilee. Cain writes"in their experience of Jesus and his disciples, the peasants of Galilee encountered the prescence of God. They met a God who accepts, forgives, and heals them. To reiterate an important point, it is not likely that Jesus' subsequent crucifixion detracted one bit from thier experience of God, nor that reports of his resurrection added anything to it. They had encountered Jesus. They had shared meals with him. They knew what it was like to live in God's kingdom. That was enough." This concept of the Galilean followers and many other ideas as well, makes this book by Marven Cain a real contribution to the efforts being made to make the real Jesus accessible to the people in modern times.

A Simple Yet Deceptive Work  Jun 17, 2000
Cain's work is a short expose on historical Jesus research. As a historical Jesus researcher, I was dismayed by the poor handling of current scholarship. First, Cain's premise is that only a Jesus who is excoriated by modern research is truly understandable to modern man; however, this is a logical fallacy and unwarranted dichotomy meant to confuse the reader. Second, the work is, of course, based solely (and I do mean solely) on the work of the Jesus Seminar, a vocal but by no means authoritative group of researchers. Furthermore, the author's use of blanket statements and non-sequiturs made the book unbearable. While I recognize that the book was not written on a scholarly level, this book stands as a rather erroneous look at historical Jesus research today. This book has more to do with the Jesus Seminar's presuppositions than with the historical Jesus. If you want to know more about the Seminar, leave this book behind and read J.D. Crossan. If you really want to catch a glimpse of both sides, then there are two "debate" books as a starting point: Crossan and Craig's "Will the Real Jesus Please Stand Up?" or Borg and Wright's "The Meaning of Jesus."
You Don't Have to Be a Biblical Scholar�  Jan 3, 2000
This is a great little book and a wonderful resource for scholarly information about the historical Jesus. The author uses the latest research and documents it well with an excellent bibliography. I particularly appreciate his clear writing style which makes the subject readily accessible to the general reader. You don't have to be a Biblical scholar to understand the information in this book! I recommend it highly for study groups interested in learning about Jesus as an actual historical figure.
A Truly Outstanding Jesus Book  Dec 7, 1999
This is a wonderful book. It is very easy to read and complete. It presents a very clear and honest picture of the historical Jesus. The illustrations are very helpful and Dr. Cain's scholarship is outstanding. I highly recommend this book!
