The life of Jesus Christ is the most important event in the religious history of mankind. The significance of it is eternal. Nowhere else has God so revealed his nature. How should one approach the task of writing an account of it? George A. Barton belongs to the historical school, and seeks to use the knowledge of the composition and dates of the Gospels which has been gained through modern study in accordance with the methods of modern historical research. He divides Jesus of Nazareth: A Biography into six parts: • Things to Be Known Beforehand • The Life of Jesus before His Ministry • The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • The Peræn Ministry of Jesus • Jesus Avoiding His Enemies • The Passion and Resurrection

George A. Barton taught at Haverford College, Bryn Mawr and the University of Pennsylvania where he was Professor of Semitic Languages from 1922-1931 and Professor Emeritus from 1932-1942. His many articles and books cover a wide range of topics in areas such as biblical studies, religion, and linguistics. He was also involved in archaeological projects throughout the Middle East and was the director of the American School of Oriental Research in Baghdad from 1921-1934. While Archaeology and the Bible represents his efforts to make Ancient Near East studies accessible to the pastor and Sunday school teacher, Barton's research and academic work continues to be recognized for its importance to this day, particularly his works The Religion of Israel and A Critical and Exegetical Commentary on the Book of Ecclesiastes.
