Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0745953077, Paperback)

Designed for readers with little to no knowledge on the subject, this accessible and honest survey introduces the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. Using only the most reliable historical sources, this study clears away the myth and reveals a man who challenged the contemporary norms of society and religion, associated with social outcasts, demanded compassion toward the needy, and subverted imperialism. Insight is also offered into Jesus’ teachings and parables in an effort to uncover their true meanings. The role and impact of Jesus in his own time, throughout history, and in today's world is also provided.
