Jesus in the Gospels and Acts: Introducing the New Testament by Daniel J. Scholz, with academic editor James A. Kelhoffer, explores the questions: What do we really know about Jesus? and How do we know it? -- from the perspective of the New Testament, specifically the four Gospels and the Acts of the Apostles, as well as the extracanonical gospels. Using language and concepts considerate of a religiously diverse undergraduate audience, the author explores issues of authorship, historicity, culture, and theology. "This book focuses on the central figure of the Christian Scriptures: Jesus. Arguably, no other figure in history has had more influence in shaping many of the religious and cultural norms in the world today. Whether you belong to a specific faith tradition or none at all, possessing a working knowledge of Jesus and the Gospels is important for religious, historical, and cultural literacy." —from the author's introduction.
