    Notes: Johnson is a highly-regarded Biblical scholar who teaches at the Candler School of Theology, Emory University. He is the author of a fine introduction to the New Testament, commentaries on Luke and Acts in the Sacra Pagina series, and a new commentary for the Anchor Bible on the epistle of James. This new book is his response to the Jesus Seminar. We pass on the description in the publisher's catalog: ''Challenging the notion that history determines faith, Luke Timothy Johnson argues that 'the real Jesus for Christian faith is not simply a figure of the past but very much and above all a figure of the present. ' Provocative and timely, The Real Jesus argues that the current quest for the historical Jesus by the Jesus Seminar and by such leading figures as John Dominic Crossan, Burton Mack, Marcus Borg, and John Meier is fundamentally misguided. 'Johnson effectively and deliciously skewers a lot of half-baked scholarship...challenging everyone...to rethink some of the most basic questions about faith's connection with history. '(Wayne Meeks, Yale University).
