"Since the 1970s there have been dozens of books on Jesus. I have read most of them, and even written one or two myself. [Meyer's book] is head and shoulders above most of them. . . . I realize now how lucky I was to soak myself in his thought at a formative stage. . . . Not only my thinkinbg and scholarship but also, I discover, my preaching has been vitally informed by this book."
--N. T. Wright, from the Introduction
author of Jesus and the Victory of God
