Editorial Reviews

Living Church
"Never in all my years of reviewing books have I been so enthralled, excited, and empowered as I have been with this reintroduction of Flusser into my reading repertoire."

William Klassen
— in Religious Studies Review
"Flusser is not only brilliant and thoroughly familiar with all classical sources, Jewish sources, and later Christian sources that bear on our understanding of Jesus; he is also passionately concerned that the historical Jesus be taken seriously. He readily admits that he, an observant Jew, personally identifies himself with the worldview of Jesus, both moral and political: 'The content of Jesus' teachings and the approach he embraced have always had the potential to change our world and prevent the greatest part of evil and suffering.' For years I have been recommending this as the best book on Jesus available. No better way to discover the Jewishness of Jesus and possible links to Qumran than to read this book."
