    In this book Allison gives a rigorous defence of the position that Jesus was a prophet with an "apocalyptic" message, who expected the final overturn of evil within his own generation. The book is often technical and assumes familiarity with current debates on the reconstruction of the historical Jesus. Allison's case is strongest and argued most thoroughly when he takes on the competing reconstructions of John Dominic Crossan, Marcus Borg, and Stephen Patterson. He also disagrees sharply with s [...]

    This is a powerful and succinct defense of the notion that during his time Jesus was an eschatological prophet, first and foremost. Allison takes on the best alternatives and their supporters head on (such as the notion of Jesus being an aphoristic sage via Crossan). He illustrates how difficult it is to try to reconstruct what Jesus himself might have taught given the fact that the only texts we have reporting his sayings have gone through the hands of living communities with histories and agen [...]

    In this work Allison engages with three topics on the historical Jesus: his method, Jesus as an eschatological prophet, and Jesus as an ascetic. Contrary to authors like Borg and Wright who acquiesce at the future eschatological Kingdom of God, Allison makes a strong case, in the vein of Schweitzer, for Jesus as an eschatological prophet (who got it wrong). I think a good case can be made as a middle ground between these views as the Kingdom of God know-and-not-yet as Meier and Dunn seem to envi [...]

    Demolishes the fallacious arguments of John Dominic Crossan, Marcus Borg, Stephen Patterson, and N.T. Wright in order to reclaim the apocalyptic worldview of Jesus for a new generation. The definitive defense of the apocalyptic Jesus.
