"Recent claims about the life of Jesus (including The Da Vinci Code) have raised many questions about the historicity of the man from Nazareth. Now John Dickson sets the record straight. He draws on the latest scholarship to provide a succinct account of Jesus' life, teachings, death and resurrection - and his continuing significance today. The text is illustrated throughout with fine art reproductions and photographs of the places that Jesus knew."--Publisher description.
