Renowned scholar and author Albert Schweitzer's world-changing study of the true life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth
The Christian religious tradition has shaped much of our world for two millennia. But separate from the practice of Christianity is the factual life of Jesus himself. In this groundbreaking study, philosopher and Nobel Peace Prize winner Albert Schweitzer delves into biblical text and historical evidence to deconstruct the many myths of Jesus's life that have been propagated through the centuries. A seminal work, Schweitzer's book brings into focus the social and political currents of Jesus's time to rebut previous authors' hypotheses and form an entirely new one of his own.

A milestone text in its time, Schweitzer's book was so dominant that virtually no new scholarly investigations of the historical Jesus were published for decades after its initial release. Now, more than a century later, The Quest of the Historical Jesus remains the standard against which religious academic studies are measured.
