Historical Jesus

What Can We Know and How Can We Know It?
$9.99
($12.00)
Historical Jesus asks two primary questions: What does -historical- mean? and How should we apply this to Jesus?
Anthony Le Donne begins with the unusual step of considering human perception -- how sensory data from sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell are interpreted from the very beginning by what we expect, what we've learned, and how we categorize the world. In this way Le Donne shows how historical memories are initially formed. He continues with the nature of human memory and how it interacts with group memories. Finally, he offers a philosophy of history and uses it to outline three dimensions from the life of Jesus: his dysfunctional family, his politics, and his final confrontation in Jerusalem.
This little book is ideal for those with no background in religious studies -- even those with no faith -- who wish to better understand who Jesus was and how we can know what we do know about him.
