The Historical Jesus and the Christ of Faith
Marcus Borg and N. T. Wright in Critical Dialogue
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"By means of his insightful comparison of the views of Borg and Wright on the historical Jesus, George Demetrion addresses the central questions surrounding the interplay of history and faith in our knowledge of Jesus. Demetrion's reading of both authors is empathic and generous, as he attempts to build bridges between postliberalism and evangelicalism. This is a stimulating book. . . . Highly recommended!"
--Donald A. Hagner, George Eldon Ladd Professor Emeritus of New Testament, Fuller Theological Seminary
"Demetrion provides an insightful analysis and critique of two very different visions of the historical Jesus. This book is a helpful tool for navigating the philosophical foundations of historical Jesus studies. Demetrion proposes a middle way, where historical research is not ignored but builds on the solid foundation of God's self-revelation through Scripture."
--Mark L. Strauss, PhD, University Professor of New Testament, Bethel Seminary San Diego
"Demetrion has done us a great service. He invites us into his own informed exploration of this perennial question of the truth about Jesus. His strategy is both humble and informed. . . . [T]he questions engaged in this little book are far from trivial, and warrant our close reading."
--Glen G. Scorgie, from the foreword
