“Schweitzer describes and critiques 18th and 19th century attempts at retrieving the "Jesus of history" and stands at the crossroads of the 19th and 20th centuries to bring closure to the former, and to open the latter for New Testament scholarship. Schweitzer saw the problems of historiography, theology, and politics in the ways the issues were formulated—and the answers proposed—and refocused attention on Jesus’ "eschatology" in a way abandoned by his predecessors… Informed readers will desire Schweitzer as a reference point for the mistakes of the past and the possibilities of new directions.” (Annotation from Amazon.com)
