9780761840961: The Quest of the Hermeneutical Jesus: The Impact of Hermeneutics on the Jesus Research of John Dominic Crossan and N.T. Wright

The Quest of the Hermeneutical Jesus is a study in how reading documents referring to Jesus influences conclusions as to who Jesus was as a figure in history. In this book, author Robert B. Stewart leads his readers through the projects of two of the most important and influential scholars in the field of historical Jesus research, in order to show his readers how the philosophical presuppositions and hermeneutical methods of Crossan and Wright impact their respective historical conclusions concerning Jesus. There is arguably no more important question in religious studies than: What can we know about Jesus? Stewart takes on the task of filling the void in this area by addressing how hermeneutics influences history. In addition to highlighting the work of two great scholars, Stewart also provides a useful introduction and guide through much of the maze of contemporary literary criticism.

About the Author:

Robert B. Stewart, (Ph.D.), is Associate Professor of Philosophy and Theology and Greer-Heard Professor of Faith and Culture at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.

Review:

Dr. Stewart succeeds in showing the integral connection between hermeneutical perspectives found respectively in John Dominic Crossan and in Bishop Tom Wright and their differing work on the historical Jesus. Both writers are very widely read, and this makes Dr. Stewart's comparisons all the more valuable. I commend this volume. (Anthony C. Thiselton PhD, Emeritus Professor of Christian Theology, University of Nottingham)

Robert B. Stewart has offered to the Christian world an important work that engages, at the highest levels, contemporary Jesus scholarship. Dr. Stewart is one of a handful of Evangelicals who has taken the time to carefully, and not only critically, examine the scholarship of those outside his tradition. Not only Professor Crossan and Bishop Wright will be better for it, the rest of us get to plumb from the fruit of Dr. Stewart's labors as well. (Francis J. Beckwith, Baylor University)

As Robert B. Stewart asserts, there is a necessary connection between one's hermeneutic and one's historical conclusions. More than an excellent survey of the positions of John Dominic Crossan and N.T. Wright, Stewart's The Quest of the Hermeneutical Jesus sets the views of these influential scholars against the backdrop of the last century of historical Jesus research. The careful distinctions made time and again are integral in allowing the reader to understand the critical milieu of a wide range of crucial topics in the current debate. I recommend highly this nicely-nuanced and rigorous volume. (Gary R. Habermas, Distinguished Research Professor, Liberty University)
