fantastic book so far. It gives a detailed outlook of sources, Biblical and non-Biblical of Jesus as well as a fairly detailed outlook of his life. Really easy read, good for advanced and beginner and everyone in between who truly want to know more about Jesus Christ.
I ordered this book for a college class I am taking. It is not quite what I would have expected for a college text. Stein seems to put too much emphasis on the extrabiblical sources and not enough on the Scripture. He also spends too much time discussing all of the other points of view rather than just getting to the point of what he wants to get across.
