The only other book he ever wrote (besides his thesis) that is exegetical, "Son of Man and Kingdom of God" is Sharman's attempt to once again deal with a difficult subject that has lead to all sorts of complicated theologies and eschatological thinking: what did Jesus mean when he spoke of "the Son of Man" and "the Kingdom of God"?

In this book,Sharman looks at every single instance in the gospels where Jesus reportedly used the phrases. He knew that this made the book so difficult it would "tax the patience of the most interested reader"; but in fact, the book is more readable than his thesis because he is no longer trying to use Burton's ideas about the sources of the gospels to prove any of his points. Now, the source is either "Source-Mark" or "Non-Mark-Source". Sharman may not have abandoned Burton's ideas entirely, but neither did he wholly embrace what others had identified as 'Q'. As far as possible, Sharman stuck with what could be proved.

Sharman spent much of his thought and energy perfecting an argument against the eschaotological teachings -- the teachings of the future, the Messianic Kingdom, the Son of Man -- reputed to Jesus in the Records. Sharman evidently thought much of these contained shallow accretions that did not fit in with Jesus' other teachings and denigrated his thought. It would seem that Sharman sought to save the religion of Jesus from people with shallow religious sensabilities. ( )
