A plausible explanation of the life of Jesus and his "resurrection." Other accounts
are either pro-Christian or anti-religion. This is neither. It is pro-Jesus and
pro-Jewish. His dissection of the four gospels is masterful, but he does not
criticize the OT and he goes to great lengths to exonerate the Jews of responsibility
for the persecution and crucifixion of Jesus. He is not at all successful in this.
Nevertheless, his account of what probably happened is reasonable and pretty much
the same as my own reading of the NT.
