This book is of particular interest to scholars whose interest is in New Testament, historical Jesus, hermeneutics and historiography study. Donald Denton refers to the emergence of distinct approaches to historical Jesus studies, which are based on similarly distinct conceptions of the historiographic enterprise and how it relates to basic hermeneutical concerns. Trends have developed in Jesus studies that can be categorized in terms of these historiographic and hermeneutical issues. An understanding of these trends will help the observer of, and participant in, historical Jesus studies to sort through the surplus of current options from a basis of informed decisions about the root issues that guide historical investigation. This is volume 1 in the Journal for the Study of the Historical Jesus Supplement Series and Volume 262 in the Journal for the Study of the New Testament Supplement Series.

."..if you want to see what a thoughtful, modernist historical critic has to say that is critical of biblical historical criticism- i.e., 'from within', as it were. Or if you're looking for succinct, insightful discussion of the views of either Crossan or Meyer. The book is generally well written... There is a helpful introduction and an extensive bibliography, and indexes of names and biblical citations."- George Aichele, "The Bible and Critical Theory, "Vol. 2, Number 1, 2006--Sanford Lakoff
