John Dominic Crossan is one of the foremost historical Jesus scholars of our time. This collection gathers eight volumes of his provocative work, exploring Jesus’ life and teachings as they are presented in the Bible, as well as several apocryphal texts. The product of a lifetime of research, works such as Cliffs of Fall, In Fragments, and The Essential Jesus examine how Jesus’ teachings are presented throughout several nontraditional sources, and look at the Galilean’s teaching from several new angles. Then, in works like The Cross that Spoke and Four Other Gospels, Crossan explores how apocryphal texts like the gospels of Thomas and Peter can affect the way we read accounts of Jesus in the traditional canon.
