The Human Christ The Search For The Historical Jesus -by- Charlotte Allen. ISBN 0745940706. Some
of the finest minds and most provocative figures of modern times have been
intrigued by the enigmatic figure of Jesus, and have sought to discover the
flesh and blood man who walked the roads of Palestine 2,000 years ago; this book
examines the many and varied images of Jesus produced by such thinkers and
artists such as Spinoza, Newton, Voltaire, Gibbon, Tom Paine, Jefferson, Kant,
Hegel, Marx, George Eliot, Flaubert, Oscar Wilde, Cecil B DeMille, and Norman
Mailer; but in doing so the author discovers that many of these questors were
ideologically driven, and that these works in fact tell us more about the
intellectual and cultural fashions of the last 3 centuries than it does about
the significance of Jesus and his message. (Lion Publ, Oxford, 1998) Used softcover book, 382 pages,
