The Human Christ The Search For The Historical Jesus -by- Charlotte Allen (1998). ISBN 0745940706. Some

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. Used second hand softcover book. 382 pages. (Lion
