Much of what one sees or reads about Jesus is deliberately sensationalist or evasive. Producers and writers raise issues of merely historical interest, highlight trivial matters, or allege that cover-ups" have hidden the "real truth" for many centuries. They will do anything but face the challenge in the ultimate religious drama created by the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth." - Gerald O'Collins SJ. There are many books about Jesus, but few attempt to tell us what he was actually like. This new book by the distinguished Catholic biblical scholar and systematic theologian Gerald O'Collins concentrates on bringing the personality of Jesus alive. It combines devotion and experience with a lifetime of scholarly investigation.
