Recent developments have blurred the view of Jesus for ordinary people. The popular imagination has been captured by conspiracy theories propounded by highly-charged accounts loosely connected to gnostic writings including The Da Vinci Code. In eleven chapters - which cover the historical value of the New Testament, Jesus' birth and family, his teachings, miracles, death, resurrection and subsequent appearances - John Dickson clears away the mists of speculation and fantasy, revealing the founder of Christianity in sharp focus. Finally he also considers the real significance of Jesus for the 21st century. The book is beautifully illustrated throughout with fine art reproductions and photographs of the places Jesus knew.
John Dickson is an historian, musician and bestselling author. He is an Honorary Associate in the Department of Ancient History, Macquarie University (Sydney) where he also teaches a course on world religions. He lives in Sydney with his family and spends his time researching, writing and speaking about life's big questions.
