John the Baptist

His Life and Afterlife
  • By Josephine Wilkinson
$25.49
($29.95)
Product Description
A respected historian traces the real life and times of this major figure in Christinaity and Islam.

This historical investigation into the real John the Baptist brings to light one of the most influential figures in Christianity and Western Civilization, who is also a revered figure in Islam and other religions. Two thousand years later his life and example are still an influence for millions. John the Baptist's importance is such that he appears in all four Gospels together with the writings of Josephus, and is inextricably linked to the life of Jesus. He is also believed by Muslims to have been a witness to the word of God, and to have been a prophet who met Mohammed. John was a friend, inspiration and forerunner for Jesus - and a respected figure in his own lifetime - yet the historical facts of his life are unknown to most.

Acclaimed author Josephine Wilkinson assembles the evidence to show us the man whose views led him to be sentenced to death and beheaded by Herod. Based on the ancient sources, this books gets as close as it is possible to get to a biography of John, including an account of his relationship with Jesus, and a depiction of the Holy Land in their lifetime.
