Jesus was the leader of a radical faction of Essene priests.He was not of virgin birth. He did not die on the Cross. He married Mary Magdalene, fathered a family, and later divorced. He died sometime after AD 64.

This controversial version of Christ's life is not the product of a mind which wants to debunk Christianity. Barbara Thiering is a theologian and a biblical scholar. But after over twenty years of close study of the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Gospels she has developed a revolutionary new theory which, while upholding the fundamental faith of Christianity, challenges many of its most ingrained supernaturalist beliefs.

Jesus the Man will undoubtedly upset and even outrage those for whom Christianity is immutable and unchallengeable. But for many who have found the rituals of the contemporary church too steeped in medieval thinking, it will provide new insights into Christianity in the context of the modern world.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Some will see her as an anti-Christ, a mischievous scholar determined to destroy Christianity. To others she will be a source of comfort and peace enabling them to live Christian lives without having to accept as fact Jesus's divinity, his miracles, the virgin birth and resurrection. - The Australian

[The] sensational nature [of the book's findings] may disguise the strength of the research and scholarship which Thiering has deployed in the course of her narrative. - The Sunday Times

The impact of Jesus the Man...may be as profound as that of Darwin's Origin of Species on theories of human origins. - Focus

This massive work of courage and conviction throws much of what the Church teaches out the stained-glass window. - The Age, Melbourne

At once the New Testament is changed and we are thrust into a landscape of warring sects and cults; it is exhilarating, as if the over-familiar narrative of the New Testament had been invaded by real people and authentic places. - The Times
