Peter Williams examines the Gospel accounts of Jesus’ life from an apologetic perspective clearing the ground from pre-conceived ideas and prejudices and opening up five ways to consider the claims of Jesus’ life and ministry. Williams encourages readers to take Jesus seriously and gives serious reasons why we should.

Peter S. Williams brings a philosopher’s perspective to the quest for the historical Jesus and argues that understanding the spirituality of Jesus is the path to our own spiritual enlightenment. Williams takes issue with ‘new-atheist’ discussions of faith and historical Jesus studies before guiding readers through a cumulative case for the Christian understanding of Jesus. Williams helpfully distinguishes between evidence, inferences from evidence and the impact of prior philosophical beliefs upon our assessment of the arguments. As well as investigating the historical reliability of the New Testament Gospels in light of the philosophy of testimony, Williams elaborates five ‘ways’ to understanding Jesus that stem from Jesus and his earliest disciples:

  1. Jesus’ Self-Centred Teaching
  2. Jesus’ dynamic deeds
  3. Jesus’ Resurrection
  4. Jesus and Fulfilled Prophecy
  5. Jesus and Contemporary Experience

Understanding Jesus helps readers to make their own informed response to the historical Jesus.
