Two great Bible scholars, one a liberal, the other a traditionalist, write about Jesus and engage in debate. In alternating sections, Marcus Borg and Tom Wright present their significantly different versions of who Jesus was, what he taught, and what he did. They express sharp, cogently argued disagreement over many crucial issues, and provide a marvellous model for how the Historical Jesus debate should be conducted. Following such an informed argument, the reader can watch the debate develop as the authors answer each other's points, and will reach a more personal picture of the real Jesus, understanding better the opposing views. Much more will be learned along the way.
