    "Sound reasoning, wrong conclusions"

    This is a soundly-reasoned, if wrong-headed, account of the historical Jesus. Patricia Williams correctly identifies the crux of the historical Jesus "problem": was he a reformer (as the Jesus Seminar would have us believe) or a prophet of the End Time (as scholars like Bart Ehrman would argue). This is, of course, leaving aside questions of divinity, which are not exactly open to historical investigation. Unfortunately I think she makes the wrong choice. A view of Jesus as a peaceable opponent of factionalism can only be drawn by ignoring many of the blistering tirades and prophecies of doom uttered by Jesus: statements that have as much claim to authenticity as any others. To my way of thinking, Ehrman's view preserves much more of what I see in the New Testament.

    The reader is OK, generally interesting and evenly-paced, but mispronounces a number of proper names. Still, I give it four stars for overall clarity of presentation.
