Jesus remains a popular figure in contemporary cultureand Allison remains one of our best interpreters. He speaks around the country in avariety of venues on matters related to the study of the Historical Jesus. In his new book,he focuses on the historical Jesus and eschatology, concluding that the Jesus was not aHellenistic wonder worker or teacher of pious morality but an apocalyptic prophet. In anopening chapter that is worth the price of admission, Allison astutely and engaginglycaptures the history of the search for the historical Jesus. He observes that manycontemporary readings of Jesus shift the focus away from traditional theological,Christological, and eschatological concerns. In provocative fashion, He takes on not onlythe Jesus Seminar but also other Jesus interpreters such as N.T. Wright and Marcus Borg.
