"No one in our generation is more broadly and deeply prepared than Sanders to tackle the daunting array of problems confronting the historical Jesus. This book will become the standard against which future reconstruction of the historical Jesus of Nazareth will be compared."David Dungan, Univ. of Tennessee, Knoxville.
"For Professor Sanders, Jesus is a well-authenticated figure about whom we know a surprisingly large amount. He is particularly succesful in unraveling the complex business of New Testament chronology. He then takes us step by step through Jesus' career, pausing to look in detail at the more notable problems, such as the miracles, Jesus' followers, his opponents, his last week in Jerusalem, his trial, execution and the Resurrection. I shall keep this valuable book handy on my shelves, and use its expertise and logic to confute irrtating sceptics." Paul Johnson in the Sunday Telegraph
His field of special interest is Judaism and Christianity in the Graeco-Roman world. Paul and Palestinian Judaism (1977) won national book awards and Jesus and Judaism won the Grawemeyer Award in Religion and was chosen as one of the most significant works of religious history in the 1980s by the Sunday Correspondent. Other publications include The Tendencies of the Synoptic Tradition (1969), Paul, the Law, and the Jewish People (1983), Studying the Synoptic Gospels (with Margaret Davies, 1989), Jewish Law from Jesus to the Mishnah (1990), Paul: Past Master (1991) and Judaism: Practice and Belief 63 BCE66 CE (1992).
In recent years E.P. Sanders has received further degrees: Doctor of Letters from the University of Oxford and Doctor of Theology (honoris causa) from the University of Helsinki. He is a fellow of the British Academy.
Philip TuttSacramento, CAAge: Over 65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent Analysis From An Historian's PerspectiveMay 4, 2013Philip TuttSacramento, CAAge: Over 65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Let me dispense first with the negative. The book offers little new by way of reconstruction of historical certitudes concerning Jesus of Nazareth. That said, I commend the author, a capable scholar and professional historian, for unabashedly taking on difficult topics such as Jesus' miracles and his resurrection. While I do not think that the author's focus primarily on the synoptic gospels does justice to any final picture of the historical Jesus (the exclusion of most of the material in John leaves the portrait lacking in a deeper understanding of Jesus' conception of his personal relationship with God, and its roots in the Old Testament), I have no quarrel with the author's methodology. He does make more out of the "multiple attestation" criterion of authenticity than I would allow, but that criticism is minor, compared with the overall quality and clarity of the analysis. All in all, well worth reading, at least for those who are willing to set aside, for the moment, the Jesus of faith in favor of an understanding of Jesus the Jewish teacher, prophet, and man of his times.

I enjoyed reading it and it is well written . I used this book for school and learned much from it. Would highly recommend it as it gives a new perspective to the subject matter.
