Item description for Jesus Reconsidered: Scholarship in the Public Eye (Jesus Seminar Guides Vol 1) (Jesus Seminar Guides) by Bernard Brandon Scott...

Often referred to by the press and critics alike as a single voice, the Jesus Seminar ?is not, in fact, monolithic," writes Bernard Brandon Scott. "Biblical scholars are notoriously independent and contrary." The scholars of the Jesus Seminar are no different. In Jesus Reconsidered, readers will hear the diverse voices of pioneering scholars, some of whom put their reputations and careers on the line when, in 1985, they chose to go public with scholarship that had been common knowledge in scholarly circles for more than a hundred years. Witty, timely and full of provocative issues, articles by Robert Funk, Marcus Borg, Roy Hoover and others invite readers to step inside scholarly debates and discussions previously obscured by jargon and obfuscation. Jesus Reconsidered is the first in a series titled Jesus Seminar Guides. Over the next few years, the series will gather the best writings of Westar Fellows from the pages of its membership magazine, The Fourth R, its academic journal Forum, and occasionally from previously unpublished material. Arranged topically, the Guides will focus on topics such as the the historical Jesus, parables, Easter, and canon and inspiration that have formed the core of the Seminar's work for more than twenty years. Jesus Reconsidered begins with the opening remarks of Jesus Seminar Founder Robert Funk at its first meeting in March 1985. There he laid the groundwork upon which the Seminar would be built. Robert Funk concludes his remarks by saying, "Our stories are eroding under the acids of historical criticism. We must retell our stories. And there is one epic story that has Jesus in it." For those curious about the quest and the questions that drive theJesus Seminar, this book is a must read.

Reviews - What do customers think about Jesus Reconsidered: Scholarship in the Public Eye (Jesus Seminar Guides Vol 1) (Jesus Seminar Guides)?

The real Jesus Christ.  May 7, 2008
"Our stories are eroding under the acids of historical criticism. We must retell our stories. And there is one epic story that has Jesus in it." In "Jesus Reconsidered: Scholarship in the Public Eye", pioneering biblical scholars put their reputations and careers on the line going public with what had been common knowledge among biblical scholars for over a century. "Jesus Reconsidered: Scholarship in the Public Eye" also covers the collaborators quest and their questions that drive the Jesus Seminar, a group with unique but factually driven ideas of who Christians hold as the son of God. "Jesus Reconsidered: Scholarship in the Public Eye" is enthusiastically recommended for community library religious shelves and anyone who would seek to learn more about the real Jesus Christ.
