The Essential Jesus: Original Sayings and Earliest Images
HarperSanFrancisco, 1994 - 199 pages
In his most concise and controversial portrait of Jesus yet, the author of The Historical Jesus and The Cross That Spoke reveals who Jesus really was prior to the New Testament Gospels and almost 2,000 years of Christian history. Crossan's fresh translations of Jesus' sayings show him to be a teacher who lived his own radical message. 30 photos.
