Jesus remains a popular figure in contemporary culture and Allison
remains one of our best interpreters. He speaks around the U.S.A.
in a variety 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 a
Hellenistic wonder worker or teacher of pious morality but an
apocalyptic prophet. In the opening chapter Allison astutely and
engagingly captures the history of the search for the historical
Jesus. He observes that many contemporary readings of Jesus shift
the focus away from traditional theological, Christological, and
eschatological concerns. In provocative fashion, he takes on not
only the Jesus Seminar but also other Jesus interpreters such as
N.T. Wright and Marcus Borg.
